The Order of the Gauntlet was formed to destroy evil in the world at large. Its core members were clerics and paladins. These religious paragons were united in ideals from the faiths of Tyr, Helm, Torm, and Hoar.
Members of the Order were staunch comrades, never failing to trust in each other completely. The clerics and paladins strove for excellence in everything they did, and were not afraid to fight evil. It was very uncommon to see a lone member of the Order as they almost always traveled in groups. They kept a close eye on any potential threats, and stood ready to stop any aggression.
The Order was clear on its methods, and it would never preemptively attack an opponent. They always stood against evil foes in decisive unity, striking hard and not waiting for the approval of local leaders.
The Order used faith in its stand against evil. This faith ranged from believing in one's personal god, close friends, and oneself. They believed evil must be dealt with, it could not be ignored. They would not punish someone who had not committed an evil act, and believed that just thinking a bad thought was not a punishable offense.
