The Knights and Priests of the Holy Empire worship Elrath, the Dragon God of Light, who grants them magical powers based on his elemental dominion. Their objective is to lead a life worthy of Elrath`s ideals of Truth and Purity, to shape the world in his image, and to spread his sacred Light...
The Holy Empire was originally a series of squabbling clans. Ronan the Great, High King of the Falcon, united them through a combination of dazzling generalship, brilliant negotiation, and the occasional political marriage. Once the country was under his thumb, he declared the foundation of the Falcon Empire, and settled in to make his position as Emperor hereditary.
At about the same time, the Angels, facing the end of their race, were searching for nations to convert and they set their eyes on the Humans of the young Falcon Empire, lost in the religious upheaval that had followed Sar-Elam`s ascension to Dragonhood and the Wars of Fire.
The Angels approached the young boy Brian, great-grandson to Ronan Falcon, and helped him convert his fragile Empire forlorn by the fickle Dragon of Air into a strong nation dedicated to the Angels` God, the stern and unforgiving Dragon of Light.
The Holy Falcon Empire is a theocracy with a feudal structure. In theory the Holy Emperor has absolute rule, but in reality the land is chopped up into six Duchies (Griffin, Wolf, Bull, Greyhound, Unicorn and Stag) and countless baronies, so that much of the Emperor`s time is spent juggling his various nobles.
Frequently at least one of these regions is in some sort of revolt, though these have rarely been serious or bloody... until now. More than eight centuries after its foundation, the Holy Empire faces its greatest crisis with the assassination of Empress Maeve Falcon and her children by Demon agents.
A gruesome civil war now surges across the land, as the various noble houses seek to conquer the bloody crown...
