The Soldiers of Justicar or more formally the Sacred Order of the Soldiers of Justicar (named after Just One’s mighty sword) is a chivalric order dedicated to the defense of the weak and helpless.

 Founded during the tumultuous period of the Earl War, the Order was established under the auspices of the Church of Tyr to enforce the "Edict of Peace," a decree that strictly prohibits violence against noncombatants. This edict covers a range of protected individuals, including clergy, administrators of the Church, agricultural workers, women of grace and character (unarmed), and children, underlining the Order's commitment to the protection of the most vulnerable in society.
Initially part of the Church of Tyr, the Order's mission and purpose have evolved over time. The Justicar Knights, as they are also known, now operate as an independent entity by royal decree, though their close ties to the Church remain evident. The majority of Justicar Knights worship Tyr, but the Order is inclusive of members who serve other deities aligned with lawful good principles, provided they adhere to their oaths. This openness underscores the Order's primary aim: to uphold justice and protect those unable to defend themselves.
The Soldiers of Justicar are recognizable for their unwavering commitment to their vows of chastity, poverty, and service. They are a visible and respected presence throughout the Kingdom, engaging with the populace, and addressing injustices directly. The Order's governance and operational structure are shrouded in secrecy, adding an element of mystique to their noble endeavors.
Admission into the Order is a rigorous process that begins with a period of service as a squire under the tutelage of a Master of the Order. This initiation phase is designed to instill the values and discipline required of a Justicar Knight, with only the most exemplary candidates advancing to knighthood. The process emphasizes character and dedication over noble birth, reflecting the Order's commitment to meritocracy and the broader principles of justice and protection for all, regardless of social standing.

All Justicar Knights swear a chivalric code that requires chastity, poverty, and modesty; furthermore, that will defend the weak and the helpless.

Benefits of being a Soldier of the Order of Justicar include having authority to act on behalf of the King to keep the peace, the respect and support of populace, and being well-connected with the Knightly Order that is often the first to respond to any threat to the community.
