The elite military division of the Amaranth Empire is known as the Red Blades. Their weapons are forged with red steel. Red steel is extremely rare and is valued due to its slightly stronger qualities as well as its rare colour that is symbolic to the Amaranth Empire. They are traditionally sent on missions of extreme importance to the realm, but in recent years these missions have often become trivial. They have become the puppets of powerful men, but feared and well respected puppets nonetheless. They operate above the laws that govern other men.
