In the Shadow of the Tyrant
First Knightly Order of the Lindwurm
The First Knightly Order of the Lindwurm is Freystadt’s elite order of Wyvern Knights, based in Freystadt City. Hand-picked by the Lord General, they hold rank and status over all other military entities, save for the Golden Fist. Their crest, a single gray wyvern wing on a red field in the shape of a shield, is displayed on their uniforms in place of the basic heraldry of Freystadt.
Each member of the Lindwurm order is given extensive training in leadership and combat, and in times of war they can be mobilized to take command of elite ground units or full contingents of other wyvern knights. The aerial superiority granted by the latter of these has been instrumental in making Freystadt into a formidable military force.
The Lindwurm Order currently has five members, four of them being elite knights and the fifth, the current leader of the Order, being the Lord General himself. The positions of Lord General and Master of the Lindwurm Order do not traditionally go together, and Sigismund Dreher holds both posts simultaneously through both heritage and merit.
