Knights of the 13th Order
THE ELITE KNIGHTS OF THE 13TH ORDER ARE A FIERCE GROUP THAT HAVE PLEDGED THEIR FIDELITY TO THE STRONGHOLD OF THORONDOR, ALLEGIENCE TO THEIR COUNTY OF LINDINHEIM, LOYALTY TO THEIR DUCHY OF DRAKEOLM, AND FEALTY TO THE KINGDOM OF BLACKHEART.
THE ORDER HAS A LONG HISTORY AS IT WAS STARTED BY THE GREAT GRANDFATHER OF MARCUS ANTONY IN RESPONSE TO THE BETRAYAL OF ASHLAND. THE ACCUSATION OF TREASON MADE BY ASHLAND AGAINST THORONDOR LED TO THE GREAT CIVIL WAR WITH THE KINGDOM OF ASHLAND.
THE FIGHT AGAINST KING SEV KIMURA THE 1ST LASTED MANY YEARS AND WORE HEAVILY ON THE HEARTS, RESOURCES, AND MANPOWER OF THE 13TH ORDER. THE ELITE GROUP OF MEN AND WOMEN THAT FOUGHT THIS GREAT BATTLE WERE MEMBERS OF A SMALL BUT LOYAL BARONY THAT WAS VASTLY OUTNUMBERED YET CONTINUED TO FIGHT WITH HOPE, HEART, AND COURAGE.
AFTER 10 YEARS OF FIGHTING THIS FIGHT THORONDOR WAS ACCEPTED INTO THE KINGDOM OF BLACKHEART. CASTUS ANTONY HAVING LED HIS PEOPLE VALIANTLY AND SKILLFULLY THROUGH MANY YEARS OF WAR WAS GRANTED THE RIGHT TO RETAIN HIS TITLE AND HOLDINGS AS BARON OF THORONDOR. HE ALSO REMAINED THE LEADER OF THE 13TH ORDER WITH THE FULL RESOURCES OF THE KINGDOM OF BLACKHEART BEHIND HIM.
THE 13TH ORDER HAS BECOME THE MOST ELITE FORCE WITHIN THE KINGDOM OF BLACKHEART. THE MEMBERS POSSESS A KNOWLEDGE, SKILL AND LOYALTY THAT MAKES THE 13TH ORDER A FORCE ON THE FRONT LINES TO BE RECKONED WITH AND FEARED BY OTHER ARMIES. AFTER MANY YEARS THE REIGNS HAVE BEEN PASSED FROM FATHER TO SON AND NOW THE 13TH ORDER IS LEAD BY MARCUS ANTONY
