The Brotherhood Chapellar
The Brotherhood of the Chapel of Alonsus Faol is a military-order that adheres closely to the Holy Light. The Brotherhood Chapellar, while uniquely its own organization, consists of many members from the Argent Crusade, whether they take roots in the Order of the Silver Hand or from the Argent Dawn. As such, The Brotherhood Chapellar strictly follow the traditions and virtues of the Silver Hand. Unlike similar orders, the Brotherhood Chapellar is not focused on the reclamation of Capital City. It is under the firm belief of the Chapellar society that the Kingdom of Terenas Menethil II existed between heart and mind; and therewith, can never be destroyed. As a military-Order existing within the Argent Crusade, the Brotherhood Chapellar waits for the command of Tirion Fordring. Until then, they continuously protect the pilgrim roads leading into Darrowmere Forest as well as the realms of the Alliance.
The Importance of Alonsus Chapel
Alonsus Chapel, is named after Archbishop Alonsus Faol, and can be found in Stratholme, Lordaeron. Although the fires of Stratholme and the undead invasions of the Scourge decimated much of its surroundings, the Chapel itself remained unharmed due to the safe-keeping of an artifact known as “The Eternal Flame.” Nearly one decade before the Culling of Stratholme, Uther Lightbringer, Tirion Fordring, Turalyon, Gavinrad the Dire, and Saidan Dathrohan were inducted into the Order of the Silver Hand at the Chapel. With the founding of the Silver Hand, Azeroth’s first Paladins came into being. The church remains sacred to this day, and is very crucial to the Knights Chapellar.
