The discipline is unusual in a number of ways in that it taps into the mystical energies of the passions themselves in order to power it’s abilities. This means that the withdrawal of the Passion’s favour results in the loss of an adept’s abilities. Pre-scourge Paragons were part of military orders which would act out the Passions aims giving them a large say in what happened in both the spiritual and temporal spheres.
Only two post-scourge orders have been known to exist in Barsaive, both dedicated to Garlen. These were the Blue Rose Knights of Urupa and the newly re-established Guardian Paragon Knights headquarted in Carrington. With the extermination of the Blue Rose Knights by Cassius, only the Guardians remain.
