Dark Lantern's Light
The King's Citadel
Agents of the Citadel travel throughout Breland, dispensing the King’s justice while serving as the eyes, ears, and strong right arm of the crown. Lord Kor ir’Wynarn commands the Citadel, serving as conduit between his captains and King Boranel. Four agencies operate as separate divisions within the Citadel: Swords, Shields, Wands, and Dark Lanterns.
- The King’s Swords, commanded by Captain Ellanar, consists of elite warriors trained to operate far and wide on missions in service to the King.
- The King’s Shields, led by Captain Sortan, provide protection for the royal family and other dignitaries, as well as overseeing matters of royal security throughout the kingdom.
- Captain Nebik commands the King’s Wands, a division of wizards and sorcerers used to provide magical support and to undertake missions that require arcane talents. The agents of the Wands usually work as part of a task force made up of operatives from at least two parts of the Citadel.
- The King’s Dark Lanterns, one of two secret divisions operating under the auspices of the Citadel, gathers intelligence and performs espionage missions for the crown. Captain Vron commands the Dark Lanterns, and he keeps in close contact with Lord Kor and King Boranel about many of his division’s ongoing activities. An agent of the Dark Lanterns always appears to be either a member of one of the Citadel’s public divisions (Swords, Shields, or Wands) or as someone not connected to the Citadel at all, depending on the nature of the mission. The King’s Dark Lanterns do what must be done, with the authority of the crown but also with enough secrecy that Boranel can disavow knowledge of their activities when necessary. Indeed, one of the King’s Dark Lanterns operates under the knowledge that the crown may not back him if a mission gets into trouble.
