The faction has been around for several years. It was established as a safe haven for Knights that traveled as emissaries for the noble houses. Eventually it broke into other ventures that included mercenary work, search and rescue, etc. Bids from noble houses to have their Knights be the one recognized for the deeds made vast wealth for the Retaliation of the Shield.
At some point, any Knight worth anything has passed through the faction’s halls. Whether or not they have been selected for duty is another matter entirely.
There are faction houses scattered throughout Tolyn in the major cities.
