War Legate

The world was born out of chaos. It was the rule of law and war that saved the newborn peoples. The Guardian gods safeguard the fundamental forces of the multi-plane. The Saint empowers those who would sustain order while balanced with the integrity of the individual.   The Dark Gods offered the world a different solution. A War Legate is gifted by the Quorum in order to achieve order. War is not something to be entered into lightly. It is sacred, holy. Every swing of an ax is a hymn sung. The sound of a battlefield is a heavenly choir. Victory is the ultimate act of devotion.   A War Legate is gifted by two member of the Qurorum (specifically the The Tyrant and the The War Harbinger with the dark counterpart to the Paladin. He is gifted to maintain the law. He is not inherently evil, but enacting order in an evil manner is not off the table.   A War Legate is sometimes found guarding a Noble he believes to hold the strongest claim or capacity to maintain peace and order in the land. Where a Paladin may find it hard to ignore people struggling (and thereby falter in a mission), a War Legate will not typically run into this issue. He sees his goal as his sole objective.   A War Legate typically does not seek power himself, for that desire is an impurity. His creed and oath are that of a servant to order and the strength of his weapon.

The admonition of the first legate.   Leadership is impure. Only the tyrant remains untainted. The path of a legate is done in service to both tyranny and war. Those who claim a piece of the tyrant's right to rule are forever burdoned by their imperfection. The function of a legate is eternal.     Doxology of the Yathian Legate   We are the corrective to the weakness that would spread. We are the sword that cuts the devious that would usurp strong rule. We are the eyes that descern the purity of our leaders. We are the fire that cleanses all not of the tyrant.
