Originally a large mercenary group based out of Tragwyddol, Kharon’s Swords now serve as the primary protectors of what is now Catafalque. When the peasants’ protests against the governing families turned violent, the Swords were contracted to supplement the city watch in putting down the revolt. After the plague outbreak and total chaos erupted, the mercenaries were left to fend for themselves. Father Fallor Pollux used the still valid contract to enlist the group in helping to protect those seeking refuge in the inner city and fortifying it’s walls.
In the aftermath of the Great Revolt, both the church and Kharon’s Swords found their numbers severely diminished. The two forces found themselves relying on the other with regularity and within only a few months had seamlessly become a single entity dedicated to maintaining Catafalque’s safety.
