Xanthar The Brave
The Larus, The Emperor's Sons
The Larus are an all male order, knights of extreme courage, discipline and faith, sworn to give their lives to the Emperor and serve him til death. Chosen for their loyalty to the faith, the Larus are skilled knights and warriors taken from the noble houses of the Empire, relinquishing all freedom and titles once they enter into service. While a great honour, the Larus are sworn to chastity, denying their families a chance of succession their the sworn son.
Their main tasks involve the safety of the Emperor, making up the elite Imperial guard, the elimination of demons, spirits and abominations and the protection of high ranking religious members. Occasionally, members of the Larus are also tasked with accompanying expeditions into foreign territory, taking on the roles of advisers in both military and religious matters, becoming extensions of the Emperor’s will and wisdom.
As with the Vadam and Valeem, members of the order discard their former family names for that of Dei’Larus, an indication of their devotion and rank.
