Knights of the Thorn
Antoninus is a former High Priest of Sol Helios. He is an irascible old man who led the faithful through a generation of war and brought them out the other side. However his rigid and conservative views began to fall out of favour as the city returned to a more peaceful existence.
Antonius spent much time promoting the Order of Light, an order of monks within the church. Originally they were the elite guardians of the Sun god’s temples, but Antoninus has increased their numbers and used them for numerous other tasks as well. In some quarters it is believed that they serve as the church’s secret service, rooting out the enemy within Syrak and keeping watch on her enemies. For most Syrakans however they are simply holy men who embody the simplicity of Sol Helios’ teachings.
