Taiyo Kensei

The ancient order Taiyo Kensei, the famed Sword Saints of the Golden Kingdom, is a militant monastic order of Pelor based in the City of Galahad. They fuse divine magic with unparalleled swordsmanship, consisting of some of the most powerful paladins and avengers in the entire world. The order was established centuries ago when the Golden Kingdom was still in its infancy to protect the monarchy, a duty it abandoned decades ago when High Inquisitor LaCroix staged a coup and installed himself as the Lord of the Taiyo Kensei's new theocracy.

Behind the Scenes

The Taiyo Kensei has a very distinct samurai vibe, so I named them as such, from Taiyo (太陽, Sun) and Kensei (剣聖, Sword Saint). I tried to parallel a similar organization that drew heavily from the samurai, the Jedi Order. I have tried to model a lot of the medieval-specific stuff from two similar orders from Final Fantasy Tactics, the Hokuten (Order of the Northern Sky) and the Nanten (Order of the Southern Sky). For any other gaps that can't be filled in by Japanese history, Star Wars, or Final Fantasy Tactics, look to western militant monastic orders like the Knights Templar.
