History of the Sword of Toran
The Sword of Toran began its long history under the command of Emperor Joral Kuras as one of the many legions of the Kurathene Empire. A knight Legion of the Prefecture of Epillycia, the Sword of Toran carried the Emperor's word across the Empire, serving well in Tyedu, Dubunat, and even Drotid. After the great Emperor's death in 1825 OD, the Sword splintered out just like many other Legions, many of its soldiers returning to their homelands. Two of the Sword's most prominent commanders, Michael al'Aere and Roland Barre travelled south, to the human nation of M'Chek, carrying the banner of the Sword with them.
In M'Chek, the two soldiers founded a martial academy in an effort to teach the M'Chekians how to fight honorably and with superior tactics. The nation itself was embroiled in a war with the elven nation of T'Nanshi, and the two soldiers joined M'Chek's forces and headed up an elite fighting unit. Over time, others were impressed by the Sword's tenacity and power in battle, and the Sword's ranks swelled. It was at this time that the Church of Toran stepped forward and mandated that the Sword of Toran would uphold Toran's Plan as his chosen Holy Order on Avlis.
It was around this time that the government of M'Chek elected the Sword as the sole enforcer of national laws, and entrusted Toran's faithful with the policing of the nation. The Sword undertook this task with their usual dedication and professionality, and over time they earned the respect and praise of many a M'Chekian.
Following the close of the M'Chek-T'Nanshi War and the creation of the M'Chekian Guards, the Sword's services were no longer necessary in M'Chek, and its members decided it was time for them to return home, to Kurathene, to help protect their countrymen. The Holy Legate Heldor remained behind to head up the M'Chekian branch of the Sword, and ensure that order was maintained in Mikona.
Led by Justicar and Legate Cyrenious Whitehaven, the Sword of Toran has returned home to Kuras in order to help stay the ravages of the Fief Wars and ensure that civilians are protected and battles follow certain guidelines for the benefit of all Kurathenes. To fulfill that end, the Sword founded the Quorum of Kurathene as an official moderated meeting place and negotiating body between the fiefs to try and promote peaceful settlements to regional differences in the Empire. They oversee the moderation of this Quorum in conjunction with the Blue Order of the Sky and the Luminous Order of the Mind
