  • Those many of the dispossessed and worn down soldiers that felt most drawn to his influence began to cover their faces. The reasons for this vary, a good amount of his new devotees were from among the ranks of the worst. Those that had done the most unspeakable acts, by choice, during the years of chaos and famine. These men and women of blackest soul were usually the most affected by Anshar's presence. The covering of features and eventually their full form would accomplish to reduce the influence of individuality. This as a side note, also kept hidden the physical changes that wracked their forms, kept hidden from idle eyes.

  • The one thousand guards of Anshar during the Ruk-Roofah war, his elite and powerful unit that he commanded personally into combat, were exceptionally skilled and revealed to be winged just like their benefactor. This was a cunningly hidden fact until it was tactically important to do so, allowing a Ruk pincer movement trap to fail, and also able to attack enemy massive siege units.

  • They, gifted by their faith in Anshar, had undergone some seriously physical changes over the extent of the trip between continents. The Liss made barges were roomy and well stocked; but very slow in the placid seas. How far and to what extent their bodies had been modified by their belief, has yet to be made clear. Constantly covered in a type of deep monks cowl and brightly trimmed robes, these seemingly benevolent but ever vigilant caretakers and warriors are virtually never seen. Having willingly given up name and voice and individuality, all of those things that make humans human, they selflessly attempt to help the down trodden or protect the helpless.

  • As would seem appropriate, they tend to carry mostly spears and a few swords. It is not completely confirmed how many perished in the fighting at Doran, or how many there are now. It could be any where from close to the original amount or as much as several times it.
