These are the followers of the ancient rites and rituals of the Knights Templar whose writings and disciplines foresaw the demonic invasion centuries ago. Since the Dark Ages their order has been prepared for this apocalypse, training in the ways of holy magic and organizing their followers for the eventual war against the forces of Hell.
ars are the true believers, the keepers of the faith, and the destroyers of evil. They are extremely organized and regimented, their centuries of preparation giving them the best basic footing for waging war against the demons. They also control and defend the London Underground, which serves as mankind’s sanctuary.
Templars utilize the basic military model of the secular world. Their ability to achieve discipline and uniformity, however, is what sets them apart. They have a clear separation within their hierarchy when dealing with societal administration and battle, and their chain of command is clear and strictly adhered to, making them extremely effective when fighting in groups.
The order of divine warriors and righteous swordsmen is, and by large, composed of noble men and women who wish to preserve humanity and smite the Great Dark that has fallen upon our world. After the Earth has been all by destroyed at the tooth and claw of the Demons, the Templar deemed themselves necessary leadership caste of London's remnant force, serving as the frontline in this righteous battle.
The Order The ways of the Templar are steeped in ancient rites and rituals. They follow The Rule and maintain their aptly named organization The Order with efficiency and clarity of purpose. In the aftermath of the demonic apocalypse, they have continued with their true purpose – maintaining watch over ancient relics of great power, and protecting the bloodline of man. Templar techsmiths forge weapons that hold true to their martial and medieval roots, incorporating a mixture of technology and the arcane. Their training and holy rites reflect this melding of tradition and the modern era, as well.
There are Four main groups within the Templars.
- Templars – They are the main/largest group within the Templars (I know, a bit confusing). They truly believe the quantum energy that they harness for their fight against the demonic hordes. They are what you would expect from a society that needed a higher power to get through the dark and dismal nights. They are like your Paladins of lore though. Bound to help those in need, except for the Cabalists, they only help when some form of barter or favor is exchanged.
- Ronin – They are the Atheist of the Templar sect. They know this power is not god given, Ronin have accepted this new form of energy and use it with all of their might to help stem the tide of Hell.
- Purified – When a Templar has been slain in battle, due to the number of humans declining in the last 30 years Dramatically. They have found a way to "glean" a soul from the dead Templars. They create synthetic bodies and place the souls into the new bodies. The only drawback to this, every time a purified comes back, they lose a piece of themselves.
- Aristocrat – Those within the Templar sect that have learned to bend Quantum energy to their will. (Motherfucking Jedis!) They "usually" share the same ideology of main group of Templars, but are not limited to that being their only or main belief.
