The order was formed by Devlin Stone and David Lear in 3088.[1]



The title Paladin of the Republic is the highest true title within the order. Numbering eighteen members, seventeen Paladins and the Exarch form the Council of Paladins the ruling body of the Republic, with the final member being the secretive Ghost Paladin.
