Order of the Rack Hellknight

The Order of the Rack is a Hellknight order organized in 4638 AR following the disbanding of the unauthorized orders's created by King Gaspodar to defend the frontiers of the empire. When the Order of the Scourge relocated to Citadel Demain in 4639 AR, it was given control of Citadel Rivad.[1][2]

The Order of the Rack inherited Daidian Ruel's endless quest to destroy wasteful knowledge and indolent idealism before it can affect the simplicity of everyday life takes form in the book burnings and suppression of rebellious groups for which Cheliax has become so noted. As many counter-revolutionaries, they seek to avoid change through the elimination of any dissent and the control of information. Anyone and anything which would distract from the normal peaceful progression of existence, regardless of whether they intend good or ill, must be eliminated before it has a chance to infect and fester.[3]

Every three months a new version of the history of Cheliax is produced by the imperial printing presses and it is the sacred duty of the Order of the Rack to retrive the outdated versions from all libraries, schools, and institutions. The older editions are then burned in so called 'clarity pyres'.[4]

Recruits for the Order of the Rack frequently come from old established families and trades that have personally felt the upheaval which accompanies the forces of change and have reason to believe in the inherent order and stability of tradition. Lictor Richemar Almansor, is the current commander of Citadel Rivad and leader of the Order although there are persistent rumors that he is searching for his successor among the ranks of the order.[3]
