Knights of the Setting Sun
Knights of the Fallen Sun Tarken kal Lairu, scion of the Solinar Lairu and the sorceress Mika, formed out of a group of ragtag mercenaries a band of protectors. Once on the path to become a Solinar like his father, the former king of Drachenkeep went through a crisis of faith in himself and renounced his mantle as paladin and fully abdicated his throne and crown to his sister Dove and her consort, Shaden. Shaking off the paladinhood saw Tarken become more of a berserker warrior, but still able to direct his raging fury against those that would harm others. As the dark tidings sounded throughout the land, Tarken gathered up mercenaries looking for work, soldiers displaced from their lieges, even farmers and others common folk left bereft and homeless, giving them a place in his quickly growing army. Even the old and the very young found a place and protection in the amassing force. Together with then friend and now mate Rhapsody, the lutrai/fox hybrid deployed his forces to aid in keeping the demonic and undead plague at bay, if only enough to let villages and towns have enough time to evacuate. During this time, a gypsy bard had given a toast to the Knights of the Fallen Sun, the name referring to Tarken's paladin status, the double entendre done on purpose. Later, one of Tarken's lieutenants created a banner of a shattered sun with rays in a deep purple field to rally under. After the tide had turned and the demons and undead were culled away from the lands they tried to overrun, so did too the Knights seem to vanish. Tarken and Rhapsody still maintain a large mercenary force, sending aid as needed, however there are still those of the Fallen Sun all over Kith Kanaan. They still protect and help all furs, no matter the nation or ruler. They can be found from field, to garrison, to marketplace if their aid is needed. The Knights of the Fallen Sun pay homage to no particular faith, accepting anyone who is willing to fight under their banner and take up their cause.
