Order of the Violet Dragon - New
The Order of the Violet Dragon
is a dragon order of Lucerne that directs all assassinations inside and outside of Lucerne. The order is housed in the Tower of the Violet Dragon within the walls of Castle Stragnarax. The Order has grown quickly from its early begginings and was used as one of the main elements of the Invasion of Westbridge, and their success their opens up the Order for a major step forward in the coming years. This stepforward appears to be the incoming war in Westros where William Lovie has placed a top level importance on the role being played by the Order of the Violet Dragon.

The Order is organized through a dictorial system in which their is the leader, and then flowing beneath him are the secondary leaders, and then beneath them flow the rest of the order. The head of the order is Ezio Ederiz, and he is basically solely responsible for the immigration of so many previously Ravenholdt assasins who respect him so much that they are prepared to follow him to this new kingdom they know nothing about. The Lord Assasins are the 5 most powerful assassins within the order, and are at this point made up of the greatest assassins that followed Ezio from Ravenholdt. The Cloaks of the Dragon are the trainers and leaders of the Whelpings. Each cloak is in charge of exactly 7 Whelpins, and will accompany them on their first 5 missions. Some Cloaks are without trainees, and this is mainly due to the increasingly experianced group of assasins that are rising within the Order.

History

Founding

Growth

Upon founding the Order Ezio immediatly went about finding recruits for the new order. He rounded up many possible recruits throughout the Orphanages in Lucerne , and then following this he made a trip to his old home of Ravenholdt where he offered men there the oppurtunity to become part of the order.

He would succesfully gain the support of many assassins who would follow him back and become the leaders of the new order.

Ezio Ederiz is the first son of Carla Kilgor, and Sigmund Gradlin making him a member of House Kilgor. Ezio has three step siblings in Elli, Corina, and Poldi Kilgor of which his two sisters are influencial in the form of the aristocrats of Lucerne, while his brother Poldi is the heir to House Kilgor and a well respected knight in the Kingdom of Lucerne of whom other then his mother Carla is the only one who knows he truly is.

Ezio Ederiz was born the first son of Carla Kilgor of House Kilgor and due to the suprise of this preganancy she felt forced by her parents to give him away. She at first resisted this but eventually came to terms with the fact that her parents were going to get their way on this issue so she decided to stop resisting. By giving in Ezio was born and then quickly shuffled into the orphanage in lucerne proper where he was given somewhat preferencial treatment by the orphanage masters who were payed by his mother to make sure that he was comfortable. Ezio Ederiz would join the Grandin Club of which was a youth gang in Lucerne, and as a member of this he distinguished himself to the point that he was discovered by Deacon of Rhodes of whom was able to give him a belief system as he had lost his beliefs while the greed of the Grandin Club had overwhelmed him. Joining the Order of the Raven he would at first be extremely excited about the ideals of the Order but despite the beliefs of his mentor Deacon he found that the upper echolon of the Ravens was overcome with greed and cared nothing for the creed. This loyalty and belief was eroded away as the years went by and he watched the assasins given missions to kill women, and children and realized that the missions they went on were not about ideology but instead had become about profits and money. Ezio would begin to leave the Order of the Raven years after joining and came to reside in Lucerne where he pledged his service to Bill Lovie of whom he was secretly helping so that William Lovie III. would not inherit a ruin. He became embroiled in the Lucerne Civil War when he went to Berne and got stuck inside during the events of the war, and during the siege he was the main reason for the victory of the loyalists after he let them inside the walls, and also he saved the lives of many after he hid them with the Krinners once Sean Lovie had completely become unhinged. Following this he would become leader of the Order of the Violet Dragon under the loyalty of William Lovie III. of whom had the utmost respect for him. Ezio spent the vast majority of his life a loyal servent of the Ravenholdt assasins order, and for this time believed heavily in their ideological belief that they were meant to protect society from the dangers of coruption, and evil and it was this belief system that he incorperated into the Order of the Violet Dragon but he also realized that his loyalty was to the Kingdom of Lucerne first and was fine with this as long as things had a purpose. Ezio Ederiz would organize the Order of the Violet Dragon assault on Westbridge, and his success during this campaign would further the reputation he had gained during the Taking of Fairmarket as a feared assassin and someone who could with his forces completely distablize a region. Ezio Ederiz would be commanded to find Bill Lovie following the Invasion of Westbridge, and he juggled this by sending away Sophia Lovie of whom he came to discover was a member of House Lovie but he kept this secret, and it was during this time that he is captures several Ravenholdt members of whom were attempting to capture Alice Lovie and through this uncovers a vast plot coming from Ravenholdt. Ezio enters Dole where he kidnaps the extended family of Karl Franz's wife, and he does this and for the first time silently questions the honor of this, but William Lovie III. is able to convinse him that sometimes a bad thing must be done for the good of many. Ezio Ederiz is nearly assasinated while in Westbridge but is saved by Hermione Granger and then following this retrns to Lucerne where he is commanded by William to take a large Violet force and enter Bolten where he is to assasinate Ramsey Bolten and basically end the conflict before anymore bloodshed can happen. Entering Bolten he chases the trail of Ramsey Bolten and discovers much about the situation but after entering the Dreadfort and meeting with Veseryan he learns Ramsey has travelled east trying to align with Mordor and quickly Ezio takes a boat and finds him on the Iron Islands. Stowing away on Ramsey's boat he witnesses the alliances that Ramsey makes with first the Iron Islands and then more horrifying is the one he makes with Mordor, and despite several attempts he fails to kill Ramsey.

The Lord Assassins

The Lord Assasins are the six most powerful assassins within the order, and are at this point made up of the greatest assassins that followed Ezio from Ravenholdt. The Lord Assasins command over a share of the Cloaks of the Order beneath them and thus act as the commanders of the Order of the Violet Dragon, and following the Invasion of Westbridge each commander except for Harlaqin, and Helaquin were given specific command areas.

Name Command Seat
Harlaquin Lorderon
Helaquin Lorderon
Sophia Lovie Westbridge
Benjamin Bradfoot
Thaleon Von Proveer
Garret Heglun Fogtown

The Cloaks of the Dragon

The Cloaks of the Dragon are the third level of the command structure of the Order of the Violet Dragon and stand beneath an individual Lord Assasin as their personal commander. The Cloaks stand as trainers and leaders of the Whelpings, and each cloak is in charge of exactly 7 Whelpins, and will accompany them on their first 5 missions.

Some Cloaks are without trainees, and this is mainly due to the increasingly experianced group of assasins that are rising within the Order. For these Cloaks a new title has risen following the Civil War in Lorderon in the form of the Shadow Lords of whom stand without the requirement of training and controlling Welps but as a weakeness of this they are commanded under the Cloaks.

Code of the Order of the Violet Dragon

The Three Tenets

The Order of the Violet Dragon mainly emphasized three simple moral tenets that focused on ensuring a successful mission, mastery of emotions, and the safety of the Brotherhood. All three of these tenets were created by Ezio Ederiz, and they have had a massive influence from the way in which he saw the previous rogue like orders he was in fall apart.

Stay your blade from the flesh of an innocent

I would not have drawn attention to us. I would not have taken the life of an innocent.
Ezio Ederiz

The goal of the Assassins was to ensure peace in all things. The Assassins believed that political assassinations and the death of the corrupt would bring peace and a true sense of security to the common people. Slaying innocents and civilian bystanders who did not need to die could spread strife and discord, in addition to ruining the name of the Order of the Violet Dragon itself.

Hide in plain sight

Let the people mask you such that you become one with the crowd.
Ezio Ederiz

Be unseen. The Assassins' aim was to get close to their target stealthily, and escape just as quickly. In more ancient times, Assassins aimed to perform ostentatious, awe-inspiring assassinations, usually in public. The greatest illusion from such an assassination was that the Assassin seemingly materialized from nowhere, killed a corrupt public figure, and vanished into the depths of the crowd or environment. If an Assassin was spotted stalking their target, the supernatural effect would be diluted, and it became more difficult for the Assassin to reach his target.

Never compromise the Brotherhood

Your actions must never bring harm upon us – direct or indirect!
Ezio Ederiz

The actions of one must never bring harm to all. If an Assassin failed in his or her duty, and was captured or chased, he or she must never commit any action or say anything that could be tied back to the Brotherhood, or bring harm to any member of it.

The three ironies

Do we bend the rules in service to a greater good? And if we do, what does it say of us?
Ezio Ederiz

The three great ironies were observations that described the contradictions between the Creed, and the actions of the Assassins who followed it. They were:

  1. The Assassins seek to promote peace, but commit murder.
  2. The Assassins seek to open the minds of men, but require obedience to rules.
  3. The Assassins seek to reveal the danger of blind faith, yet practice it themselves.

Though seemingly hypocritical, the ironies did not undermine the Assassins' cause. Rather, they demonstrated the way in which they embraced contradiction, "that one may be two things – opposite in every way – simultaneously."

Base of Operations

Tower of the Violet Dragon

Borgia Tower Concept
The Tower of the Violet Dragon
is the headquarters of theOrder of the Violet Dragon, and is situated within Castle Stragnarax. Located in the deep core of the Castle the Tower is one of the only towers in the entire castle that has no balistas aboard it and for this reason it relies heavily on the small enclave of housing buildings that surround it, and the wall around them to protect itself in the case an enemy was able to penetrate the Castle.

The Tower is extremely new, and its construction was meant originally to be a balista tower but the commander saw how the inside was coming together and thought it would make a brilliant command tower. This would eventually form into the head of the Order of the Violet Dragon. Under the Order of the Violet Dragon the tower was hollowed out, and the underground corridor's were expanded to make tunnels which would allow the order to move about Castle Stragnarax without being noticed, as well as escaping the castle in the event of disaster, or the need for secrecy. The Tower was the centerpoint for the work of Benjamin Bradfoot during the Battle of Castle Strangnarax and he and his padfoots moved effortlessy around without the Orcs or the defenders having any idea where they were moving.
