The Honourguard of Escanth acted as bodyguards to the royal line of the Escanth Empire and as a secret people amongst politicians, high ranking officers and city guardsmen alike. They followed commands from the Emperor directly and answered to no other than him and his family. After the empire's dynasty died out, the order of the Honourguard disbanded briefly and faded from the public eye, out of sight, out of mind, only to later return, setting forth to carry out the ideals of the original Empire as law. In order to ensure these ideals are upheld, the order blended in among the High Council of the city-state of Escanth and its Peace-keepers, watching for corruption in the ranks. Any threats to the integrity of the city and the wellbeing of its habitants are dealt with either through political manipulation... or by orchestrating the permanent neutralisation of unwanted individuals.
