An ancient order, the Knights of the Golden Cross has remained alive through the extreme devotion of its members and their descendants. They oppose evil in all its forms, although they have a particular hatred for the wicked House Vladaam. They also revere the mysterious Elder Gods pantheon and serve as a focal point in the re-introduction of those gods into society. The knights have a fortress in Oldtown. Their leader is an elf named Kaira Swanwing.
