The House of the Templars, formerly known as the Paladins Guild and the Guardians of Light, the latter revitalized through the efforts of the Archangel Xadaphon Adoh, made their home in the Chrysalis Basilica. The strong arm of the Holy Church of Achaea, their ways were mostly martial and they required at least basic skills in combat from their members before they allowed them to advance. The Templars were devoted to the ideals of Good, Light, Righteousness and Valour through the House Honour Code, requiring of them Courtesy, Prowess, Justice, Loyalty, Courage, Humility, Faith, and Nobility.
The Templars had a long and rich history. Founded by Sir Gawain in 174 AF under the original name of The Templars Guild, they wielded Bladefire with such strength and deadliness that the skill was eventually taken away by the will of the Logos, Who cited that it had proven much too powerful for mortal hands. The Templars received Forging as a replacement and were able to make their own weapons and armour.

Shallam was destroyed by the forces of Bal'met in Phaestian of 612, sinking into the depths of the Lemnian Sea. The House the Templars was destroyed along with the rest of the City of Light though some former Templars continue to uphold their oaths to their destroyed House.
