The Imperial Guard is an elite bodyguard and inner circle of advisers to the Holy Emperor of the Temerians, residing in the Peythralm Imperial Palace in the Five White Towers. It was founded in 821 and headed by Lord Commander ValenKel, with Saint Alethor as patron of this order.

Always comprised of the strongest among the strongest heroes, they are all ex-grandmasters of the Twelve Orders who were granted a promotion by other Imperial Guard, and granted a White Tower only if all other four have accepted the nomination.

An Imperial Guard holds trememdous power and freedom, but must be ready to answer the Court’s call at anytime.

The prestigious order was devastated after the Slaying of the Kings of 1455, in which their invincibility was put to the test by Kingslayer, who killed Emperor Thorgrim and all the Kings and Kingsguards attending the ongoing summit.
