The Order of the Scar is a nearly-defunct Hellknight order which focuses on finding and killing assassins. Originally founded by King Gaspodar of Cheliax as an act of desperation in the early years of the Chelish Civil War, the Order is thought to now number less than forty individuals. They are said to favor the rapier over other weapons. Most of the remaining Hellknights are located in the Taldan city of Cassomir, with the remaining residing in other parts of Taldor and Qadira. Members of the Order of the Scar survive by hiring themselves out as mercenaries to those who fear the assassin's blade; employers hope to hunt the killers down before becoming victims themselves.
