The Knights Ascendants are an order of Divine Knights who follow the teachings of the Celestial Divines. The Knights Ascendants are led by the Knight Commander, and each battalion is headed by a Divine Guardian, a title given to those who rise high enough to gain a command post.
The Knights Ascendants core belief is that through service and sacrifice they will ascend to the stars and take their place amongst the founder of their order, Seraphim Fallan, the first to ascend to become a Celestial Divine. When a follower is inducted into the service of the Knights Ascendant they are expected to spend two months studying at the church of each of they Celestial Divines before choosing one to be their patron. Once a patron is chosen they are then squired to a full-fledged Seraphim Knight for twelve full moon cycles before they are called upon to prove their devotion through a 30 day trial of fasting, physical trials and constant combat drills. Those who survive the trial are then inducted into the Knights Ascendant and are given the honorary title of Ser. From there, they serve the Divine Guardian they are assigned to until death or until they assume a command of their own.
