Fredauon Fun Fact #36:
The secret society known as The Black Angels operates on all of Fredauon. They were originally founded in the area south of The Great Mountains and their ideology assumes a natural balance between good and evil. They usually restrict their operations to assassinating leaders of winning parties in wars. They see the victory of the Wizards in the Great War as their biggest failure. Even though they are of multiethnic origin, they have their own language used only among themselves.

Why not The Gray Angels?

Also reminds me of the necromancers from Diablo.

Well, black as in operating in the dark or in secret, I guess. Haven't heard of the necromancers, will read up on it. The Black Angels are of course at least partly inspired by the Jedi in Star Wars.

I guess the necromancers are more about balancing the cycle of life and death come to think of it.

So do the Black Angels try to destabilize the Wizard Republic?

If they like balance, why assassinate a leader and perpetuate a war?

Well, the Black Angels don't have a cyclic conception of time. It's more static or transformation, similar to the ideas behind the Translatio Imperii.

I wouldn't say that they were destabilizing it. They tried to weaken it because they would always prefer a draw to a victory.

Well, I guess they wanted the Great War to end but they wanted it to end in a draw not a victory. That was the purpose of their assassinations.

Interesting. If so, do they like some kinds of democracies above others?

I am not sure yet how they define good and evil. They would need to do this in order to make the concept of balance useful. The definitions are probably subject to change in-world and might also depend on the opinions of the current leader. Btw, I am tempted to say that the title of their leader is the Old One Of The Hill or the Master Of The Hill or something like this.
