Background: Survivors of the Franciscan Monastery and the St. John's College Military School, they are a unique group of religious fanatics who happen to be expert street fighters. They have developed a code of honor, a new Bushido, for their community as well as any who wish to be taught at the Military School. Often, members choose to go out on "walkabouts" to test their mettle in combat with other survivors, aiding the downtrodden and oppressed. Those who survive their walkabouts are held in hight esteem.
