The Blade: The Blade is a mysterious and little-understood society of warriors who appear seemingly at random. They have no known homeworlds, but their ships and grasp of both arcana and technology is remarkable. The Blade has existed for thousands of years; yet few outsiders know their secrets. It is known that they were once part of the Order of the Pantheon, like the Inquisitum and what now makes up the Warrior Orders, but their precise history is unknown. Blade do not attack anyone but the Shadow, the roving bands of pirates known as the Star Raptors, demonic beings from the Veile Nebula's core, or their archenemies, the Inquisitum. The sign of the Blade is a drawn sword in gray.
