Crusaders were initially the first warriors to make up the bulk of the Kanian army. They wielded the magic of Light, granted to them by Tensess. They acquired a reputation of being irreconcilable fighters against demons, and they served as the backbone of the Kanian armies that fought in the Great Astral Campaign. To be a Crusader means spending your life serving the Church of Light, being an example of courage and selflessness on and off the battlefield. Recently, with the increased role of the Church in Kanian life, Crusaders are usually assigned to command posts in important units.
