The Justiciary were once knights under the Dhorne Empire. Theirs was a sacred burden often passed down through bloodlines. Their responsibility was to ensure that the laws were kept. They would mete out swift justice. Over time they became the pillars of social morality. If one wanted a fair and honest remark on any topic one would seek out the Justiciary.
However, when the empire collapsed many of the Justiciary also fell. They protected citizens with their lives. But, soon the guarded perished as well.
The few Judges who escaped the fate that befell their kinsmen attempted to maintain old traditions. Although they were no longer a central organization, all Judges hold a special place in their souls for justice. They must right wrongs. Overcome evil. And, bring vengeance to the deserving wicked.
