Council of Thieves
The Order of the Rack
Symbol: A spiked wheel, the Rack
Armor: Exposed musculature design, sleek helm, flayed cloak
Weapon: Longsword and whip
The Order of the Rack’s inherited endless quest to destroy wasteful knowledge and indolent idealism before it can affect the simplicity of everyday life takes form in the book burnings and suppression of rebellious groups for which the Red Empire has become so noted. As many counter-revolutionaries, they seek to avoid change through the elimination of any dissent and the control of information. Anyone and anything which would distract from the normal peaceful progression of existence, regardless of whether they intend good or ill, must be eliminated before it has a chance to infect and fester.
