The Valicar Cestro, also known as the Vanguards of Thyrm, is an elite order of knights which was officially dismantled by King Lentos Ortrinius in 4594 LC, but has unofficially turned into a private mercenary army selling their services to the highest bidder.

Their leader, Saedus Brell, is said to be the best swordsman in Talimandras - the City of Swords, and rumor has it that he has killed more than 1000 opponents and that all the blood he has shed has turned him mad.
