ORDER OF FIRST LIGHT

THOUGH NO ONE HAS SO FAR BEEN ABLE TO CONFIRM THIS, THE ORDER OF THE FIRST LIGHT CLAIMS TO BE ONE OF THE OLDEST GROUPS IN HUMAN HISTORY, STRETCHING BACK THOUSANDS OF YEARS. THEY HAVE HAD THEIR HANDS IN THE MASONS, THE ILLUMINATI, THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR... IF THEIR LEGENDS ARE TO BE BELIEVED, NEARLY EVERY SHADOWY ORGANIZATION HAS HAD AT LEAST SOME INVOLVEMENT WITH THE ORDER OF THE FIRST LIGHT. THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE KEEPERS OF THE SPARK, THOSE WHO KEPT THE ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE ALIVE, AND WHEN RESONANCE TORE THE WORLD APART, THEY ASSERTED THEMSELVES QUICKLY AS THE MASTERS OF MAGIC AND MANA. COMPOSED ENTIRELY OF THOSE GIFTED WITH THE TALENTS OF MAGES BY THE EVENT, THE ORDER FIGHTS FOR THE SAFETY AND DOMINATION OF HUMANITY, OFTEN WORKING CLOSELY WITH REMNANT GOVERNMENTS TO ESTABLISH SAFE ZONES FOR CIVILIANS, WITHIN WHICH THE ORDER OPERATES WITH NEAR IMPUNITY. THEY FIGHT AGAINST DARK FORCES, AND COLLECT POWERFUL MAGICAL ARTIFACTS FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSES. THEY ALSO TRACKED DOWN ALL THOSE WITH GROWING MAGICAL TALENT, OFFERING THEM TRAINING IN EXCHANGE FOR JOINING THE ORDER... THOSE WHO REFUSE WERE RARELY TREATED KINDLY. THEIR IMAGE AND POWER HAS BEEN SHAKEN RECENTLY BY THE SPLINTERING OFF OF THE NEW YORK BRANCH, WHICH FORMED THE GROUP ARMA, AND LEVELED SEVERAL DAMAGING ACCUSATIONS ABOUT THE ORDER'S TRUE PURPOSES. DO THEY SEEK TO PROTECT... OR TO RULE? EITHER WAY, THE ORDER REMAINS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL GROUPS ON EARTH, SETTING THEMSELVES AGAINST ANYTHING THAT MIGHT THREATEN THEIR POSITION OF POWER.
