Order of the Emerald Claw
First appearing in Karrnath a few years into the Last War, the Order of the Emerald Claw came to the aid of beleaguered Karrnathi troops, bolstering the nation’s defenses against the invading armies. In the decades since its formation, the order has vigorously set itself to numerous tasks, no matter how base, in the pursuit of its goals. Its members have been praised for bravery, innovation, and toughness as often as they have been accused of flaunting tradition and formenting treason.
Late in the Last War, Regent Moranna dissolved the Order and cast it out of Karrnath. Though driven underground, soldiers of the Emerald Claw remain a powerful force for evil in the world, and they continue to work for hidden masters, furthering the plots of terrible forces.
Although conceived as a military force, the Emerald Claw is far more than just a pack of warriors. The organization is widespread, with agents concealed throughout Khorvaire, each working behind the scenes, formenting uprisings, and performing terrorist acts to weaken existing governments and create a foothold for it to grow in power.
