Histories of Justice
Begun in 1547 BC by Karn Mennott, a Justicars famous for his skills with the Flindbars, the histories contain a strictly factual account of the order of Justicars as told by its various members.
Beginning with the tales surrounding the founding of the order, Karn documents the life each Justicar. Painstakingly researching available historical records and interviewing local storytellers, his accounts remain dispassionate and strive to include only verified facts. Those facts of dubious veracity are marked as such. For many entries simply include a listing of know justice dispensed. He passes no judgement on any action, except for those they went contrary to Imperial law, marking any such Justiciar with a black mark. For two years he worked laboriously at the project, finishing up with his own life history just before his death.
Since that time other Justicars have taken up the quill to continue his work. While not all Justicars have returned to the Imperial Lodge before they die - indeed many die in the field pursuing Imperial will - those that do have made entries for their fallen brethren. Bound in thick, yak-hide books, there are now over a hundred volumes of the Histories. The inside in a windowless sanctuary in the center of the Imperial Lodge in a plain, white washed room that holds but a single bookshelf, desk, and chair. Other than the Emperor, it is difficult for a non-Justicar to gain access to the histories, even for research purposes.
