Mantle Emblem

This is the symbol of the White Mantle, visible on many of their units' armor.

The White Mantle are a powerful religious order, formed by Saul D'Alessio. They are the ruling body in Kryta.

During the Charr invasion, Kryta was about to fall to the Charr as Ascalon did. This is when Saul and his followers rose to defend Kryta, aided by new gods he called The Unseen Ones. The White Mantle get their name from the white robes and cloaks that members of the order wear. They now reject the worship of the Old Gods.

Every year, the Mantle administer the Test of the Eye and take the Chosen, supposedly to give them special education. Unknown to those outside of the order (with the exception of the Shining Blade, the rebel group trying to oppose the Mantle), the White Mantle sacrifice the Chosen on the ancient Bloodstones.
