Order of the Imperial Falcon
The Order of the Imperial Falcon is an order of knights who have sworn loyalty directly to the King of Belfiad. They operate out of the Duchy Tirone, but they and the small land they govern do not answer to the Duke.
Over the years this has resulted in various levels of tensions between the order and the Duke of Tirone. The current Duke Rufus Arman has been grousing about all influences of the King in his lands, resulting in particularly poor relations.
