The Duchies of Estalon
Order of Morzin
The order of Morzin is the most Famous of the Sharish knightly orders, it maintains the Imperial palace, the Imperial vestments, and continues the search for any living descendants of the last Emperor. It was named after Saint Morzin, a one time body guard of the imperial family, and the last person to see them alive. It’s said that he killed a dozen assassins before being cut down, and that as he lay dying he uttered the prophecy of the imperial return, which outlined how to test potential claimants to the throne, foretold the return of the imperial line, and the rebirth of the Estalonian empire.
Rumors surround these proud knights, some of the more commonly spoken:
- The knights control the imperial treasury, and thus are rich beyond imagining.
- Members of the imperial family were found and are now kept under lock and key to prevent them from taking their rightful place.
- That the severed head of Saint Morzin sits in judgement over claimants to the imperial throne, and that those he judges as being false have their souls devoured.
