The Edge of Barine
Claw of Beli'avari
The Claw of Beli’avari is currently a fanatical sect of the Order of Beli’avari who, under the direction of Baltus Rove, have exploited a clause in the Order’s laws in order to renounce their oath of non-violence. As a whole, the Claw makes up roughly one third of the total members of the Order, though they are hardly counted amongst their ranks internally anymore due to their fanatical and oppressive doctrine.
This is a somewhat recent development however. Historically the designation of Claw of Beli’avari was given to only one member of the Order whose identity was kept secret from all except the High Cleric. It was this person’s responsibility to covertly maintain order and ensure justice for all matters under the domain of Beli’avari, using force whenever necessary. The fact that this position even existed was unknown to most until key assassinations made it obvious that there was an operative within the Order.
