The Thonian Guardian and Ordhren Apostle are the primary Close Combat threats for each Faction.
Only the most noble and skilled are chosen for the ranks of Honor Guard; those extraordinary individuals that Commanders call on for aid, personal protection and counsel. Honor Guards are tacticians, warriors, and officials. Once a Guardian has proven themselves they are awarded the hallowed Soul Sword; a massive Core-Tuned blade capable of easily cutting through the finest Ordhren Plate. Guardians are provided the best weapons, weave, and shielding in the Alliance.
In addition to their exalted battlefield prowess they are often used as Commander’s retinue and will sacrifice themselves to ensure the Commander’s Journey continues.
Apostle Apprentices demonstrate Fury and rage beyond that of their brothers. They worship and draw strength from the Ordhren Gestalt Intelligence referred to as Starfire. Ardor Corpsmen that wish to join the Apostleship will first join the Apostle Apprentice Program.
Apostles are fiery leaders and ruthless combatants often exceeding even the most well trained Thonian Guardian. Candidates for Apostle Apprenticeship are identified early and their innate Fury honed from an young age.
Apostles begin play stripped of all equipment and must earn each weapon and plate they don, further earning the respect of their brothers.
