Those in this order go by their own titles, different from the rest. Their leader is a Matron or Priest called the Illuminator, then Maiden or Under Priest Soladin command a battalion each, and Senior Brothers and Sisters lead the banners as Hospitallers. A total of seven clergy hold rank in the military forces.
The followers of the light believe their purpose within the church is to bring healing. Those with a great talent for healing generally join the light upon attaining the rank of Sister and Brother. They operate hospitals, public kitchens, orphanages, and provide comfort to those in need.
Headquartered in a prominent university, they have two monasteries, a cathedral, four castles, and scores of hospitals, orphanages, and kitchens under their direct control. This order commands two full battalions, protecting their interests, mostly of bowmen. The common soldier wears medium armor consisting of a barbute helm, hooded hauberk, pauldrons and vambrace, leather gloves, hose and chausses, with leather boots, and greaves with poleyns. Commonly with steel plated wood tower shields. They maintain stables of gelding rounceys, coursers, and chargers. Each occupied territory has a pear or apple orchard, from which they produce cider, perry, and brandy, that is home to a number of Bellas, and beehives from which they collect honey and wax. The grounds are protected by Fiends and patrolled by the clergy riding an angietto. They also maintain dozens of cemeteries and ossuaries, protected by Alfsir vessel guards.
Granted Divine Powers
Through the power of faithful Prayer many works can be done. They pray to the divine for aid in their fight against the darkness, and if their faith is strong, they get an answer. Among the proof of the divine is the use of conjured Relics, the granting of miraculous healing, and the appearance of divine servants. Their commonly used prayers include "breath of life," "silver coin," "ark of protection," "doves flight," "field of plenty," and calling forth angietto from the hall of the Maralf. This order also makes servants of cow, horse, dove, or hawk form fiends. Trees planted in their groves grow to Bellas once their halo is discovered.
