King Rhyloth and the Iron Spring
“Where most Warriors glory end, ours begins anew.”
Few forces in Westeros are more revered that the Phoenix Legion. A small force of 20 elite soldiers that report to the Iron Throne alone. Even the small council is forbidden to have contact with them. Little to nothing is known of how these soldiers are trained or what bidding they do for the king. They are shrouded in so much mystery that many inhabitants of Kings Landing believe them to be a myth until seeing them. None of this stops rumors from persisting about them and their ways. Some believe they are derived from Wilding magic, others that they are White Walkers bewitched to follow the Kings command. It is widely rumored, however, that when a member of the legion dies two candidates are selected to fight to death at his funeral pryer and if the victor is able to do so before the flames consume him; a new member of the Phoenix Legion is born from those ashes.
