The Lightless are a order of Aethonite monks based out of the Tithaarn Temple. Nominally, they are known for being some of the best healers in the known world. In recent centuries, however, these skills have secretly shifted to more militaristic and combative functions.
Seekers acquire promising young talent for the order from an early age.
All Lightless are blinded upon their elevation to the Adept level. This is meant to strengthen their ability to sense, draw and manipulate essence as they begin their advanced training.
Lightless are accompanied at all times by two Guardians. These Guardians are responsible for guiding the blind Lightless, protecting them from harm, and providing them with a ready source of Sae. They are hand selected from the military for their loyalty, and martial prowess
