Hellknights

Main Page >> Factions >> Hellknights

The Hellknights are a collection of knightly orders with a unique focus on the promulgation of law. They are interested less in the social goodliness and charity typical of paladins, but in the foundation and stringent maintenance of order at all costs. In their iron-handed exaction of law —specifically, the laws of their various orders and their home country of Cheliax — Hellknights emulate the most organized and effective armies in all the planes: the legions of Hell. They are not concerned with morality; they are not concerned with methods; they are concerned with results. If people cannot be trusted to obey the law out of their own senses of civility and social righteousness, then they need to learn how to obey out of fear of a master’s stern hand.

There are numerous orders of Hellknights. The majority have holdings in Cheliax, but a few have expanded or moved to operate outside the country, most typically in regions formerly held by the empire. At the current time there are seven major orders:
-Order of the Rack at Citadel Rivad near Westcrown (Cheliax)
-Order of the Scourge at Citadel Demain near Egorian (Cheliax)
-Order of the Nail at Citadel Vraid near Korvosa (Varisia)
-Order of the God Claw at Citadel Dinyar in the Aspodell Mountains (Isger)
-Order of the Chain at Citadel Gheradesca near Corentyn (Cheliax)
-Order of the Gate at Citadel Enferac near Pezzack (Cheliax)
-Order of the Pyre at Citadel Krane near Ostenso (Cheliax)
