Blackguard, also referred to by some as the antipaladins, that epitomizes pure evil. Nothing short of a mortal fiend, they are quintessential black knights, carrying a reputation of the foulest sort. Consorting with demons and devils while serving dark deities, blackguards are hated and feared by all. They usually lead legions of undead, evil outsiders or other monsters to conquer under their own guide. Occasionally guards might end up as wandering purveyors of chaotic destruction, attacking with honorless guile or flat out smiting the forces of good that stand in their way. Due to the nature and general attitude of the Black Guards,they seek for power,influence,wealth and dominance and o fcourse the attention of the powerful deities or evil outsiders to imbue them with more dark powers and blessings. Story of the order is engulfed in dark secrets and mystery,but you know a black knight when you see him.
