The Herald’s, being a secret and closed organization (All things that yield positive results), refuse to discuss their origins. Legend has it, however, that they were founded by a group of human monks who worshiped the Magicka’s ability to Bring Forth the Possibilities. They believed that these Magicka were deities who could bring Balance to the world.
All that changed after Perfection.
The remnants of those monks banded together with their faith reformed and redefined. They knew what brought True Balance
Death. (Queue dramatic eyebrows)
We were all Balanced, all equal, in death. Only males are allowed to enter the order, as women bring life and therefore upset the Balance.
Over the years, the Heralds have changed from the worshipers of the
to the bringers of it.
