The War of Aconi
The Anti-Mage enforcement
Templars, often called ‘Mage-knights’, work as an anti-mage force and are commanded by the high Templars in the lowest levels of the Ruby Tower. If needed, Templars can also act as soldiers in the defence of the city, providing excellent shock troops. Though the Templars keep the civilians safe from rogue mages, they do not discriminate between a rogue mage, a wild mage, or a mage with no control of their ability and are scared. They kill any mage they meet on the field.
