When one recalls childhood stories, one figure frequently stands out: a strong, charismatic individual dressed in shining armor, ready to save the day. Indeed, Crusaders are often remembered in history and in tales as the unforgettable heroes of legend. Despite being portrayed similarly in many of these tales, Crusaders are, in reality, individuals with a variety of motivations, objectives, and personalities.

Crusaders following a religious path perceive themselves as living instruments of their divinity. As such, they would seldom defy their Patron's wishes, partly due to their loyalty and partly because they are the source of their abilities. In fact, a Crusader runs the risk of losing all magical abilities if they were to defy the source of their devotion. They have a strong desire to share the teachings of their god, to let others know about them, and to attract more devoted followers. 


Crusaders with Patrons other than Gods have more freedom, usually adhering to their own code of honor or that of the city they are in. Despite their independence from traditional gods, these Crusaders still possess a deep connection to their chosen Patron, drawing strength and guidance from their beliefs and values.

Path of the Divine Shield

The Divine Shield Crusaders are those who decided to dedicate their lives to protecting others. All of them wield a shield that they use for their own protection and that usually bears the crest of their god. They can heal their allies through a variety of means, and their primary concern is to keep their allies, themselves, and any civilians alive. A Divine Shield would not only stand in front of their allies to protect them from enemy attacks, but they would also use their healing powers to keep them fighting. Aside from their vow of protection, Divine Shields can also help to strike down enemies, both through physical attacks and spells. As long as they are alive, there is hope for victory.

Path of the Dragon Knight

In the world of Arkelon, when a dragon dies, some of their essence lingers, allowing brave warriors to bond with these spirits and become Dragon Knights. With their innate connection to dragons, most of these warriors are Dragonkins, but other lineages can follow this path. They must, however, undergo a complicated ritual to bond with these spirits, sometimes leading them to their deaths. If the Knight is a Dragonkin, their chosen essence should be of the same element as them, as bonding with an element other than one's own is much more difficult. Contrary to the image that one might have of a Crusader, Dragon Knights are not Divine magic users, and do not follow a god. Instead, they are bestowed Spirit magic by their draconic essence.

Path of the Inquisitor

Inquisitors are people with ideals and values, and they have decided that everyone should follow them at all costs. While their gods never explicitly tell them what to do, Inquisitors interpret the messages they receive to guide their actions. An Inquisitor’s utmost desire is to please their god, to make them proud. Few things please Inquisitors more than to fight for glory in their god’s name on the battlefield. They seek order and respect, and they are focused on their goal, which is usually their life's sole purpose. Inquisitors have no time to lose; they are straight to the point, and they have no pity to spare for those who stand in their way.
