The Title of Guardian Master is a title given to only one individual at a time. This person is the trainer, master, and teacher when it comes to fighting the forces of Azathoth. This person must hold a multitude of knowledge in fighting styles and techniques. Arguably one of the most important individuals in the knighthood; many come to him in times of need when all else seems to have failed. He is both calm and collected and serves as beacon to everyone around him. His knowledge rivals that of the Great Guardian Library.
A First Priest is a Paladin or Cleric that has served as an initiate for several years and is now preparing and training to become a Guardian Priest
A First Mage is a Wizard or Sorcerer that has trained for several years as an Initiate and is now preparing to become a Guardian Mage
A Knight Initiate is a new recruit into the knighthood they serve for many years and take on many missions before full blooded membership as a First Knight is even considered. The life expectancy of a Knight Initiate is 6 months and therefore only given out to people who are dead serious about what the Guardians represent.
Dark Knight of the Shadows
Are titles given to members of the dark corners of the multiverse where their allegiance with us must remain in secret or risk death. They are dark heroes who ally with us because they believe in our overall cause.
