An ancient organization that brought about Dantus's rule long ago. This group directly fought against The Union of Pellamulara
As the demonym suggests, Dantus is the sole leader of the Embrace, but in a way is not the leader. The Embrace is a religious cult worshiping Dantus, so there are multiple ranked leaders that run the group and follow what they determine as his teachings. The main three ranks are Firstborn, Heirs, and Children.
Firstborn are the default leaders by usually magical strength of the dark arts. They are listen to Dantus's direct orders and also interpret his views into religious messages. Fighting among each other is strictly forbidden. These would be generals or tacticians in Dantus's army.
Heirs are usually magically powerful people with a bent towards darker magics. Their can be as many of them as there are people to follow, but to advance in rank they must prove themselves to the First Born by either killing one or a large demonstration to Dantus. These are lieutenants in Dantus's army.
Children are anyone willing to follow Dantus's message.
Their goals have always to give more power to Dantus, whether that being magical or political. While not a main objective, they tend to bring about more use of dark magic in the world.
They are a very devout people. This means that Dantus had thousands of followers that would blindly follow his every whim. As a result, it made them exceptionally dangerous to his enemies.
While was formed as a result of Dantus's rise to power. His forces quickly became one in the same as the Embrace around the height of his power. This made the Embrace as his enforcers among his empire.
They lasted until his fall from the Scion's Circle
and The Union of Pellamulara
