Emperor Marksus and the Dragon Knights of Aurndest
These mighty warriors are men and women of Aurndest who have tested their battle prowess against countless foes. These great humans are tested to become Dragon Knights if they gain the right to attempt the ritual.
Champions typically roam Aurndest as the empires eyes and ears of the country, but also vigils of the country, keeping it safe from the terrible perils of the world. These stronghard warriors fight for the people, to serve justice to those deserving of it, and to protect the country from threats of any kind. They generally travel alone, but join up with small groups of adventurers from time to time.
