The Deathguard: An elite order of knights and priests, the Deathguard is dedicated to the utter eradication of all negatively charged undead and the necromancers who defile the souls and bodies of the dead. Created to battle the corrupted spirits of the realm, the Deathguard played a critical role in the destruction of the line of Vol; to this day it continues to fight the Blood of Vol cult. With their skull-tattooed faces and artifi cially decomposed flesh, members of the Deathguard often resemble blackguards more than paladins.
