The Order of Saint George

I've heard stories of the Order, but only from those that claimed to have been saved or punished. Some of these stories are patently absurd, others very intriguing. Lately some of the young have taken to wearing white bands around their arms as a symbol of support for the Order, some even claiming to be members. What foolishness. If the order actually exists in the form some claim, its members would be hunted by nearly every monster inhabiting the city, and all their minions besides. If the Order really exists, then it would be under cover of deepest secrecy.

Rumors call it a new order of Knights Templar, a brotherhood of holy vigilantes founded by a priest and his acolytes in order to right wrongs, protect the innocent, punish the guilty, bring about a new covenant, etc. The rumors make out members of the Order as the eventual saviors of mankind. Some believe they are part of a New Covenant patterned after the old, and that they have risen to humanity's need, wielding miraculous powers which they can only hold on to if they adhere to secret mysteries and oaths. I suppose even monsters were thought of as fantasy once, and so I hope that these rumors are more than simple fantasy. If even part of the rumors were true, the fiends would have nightmares themselves.
