The Banners of Xizamiron

The demon Xizamiron's army was not one unified force in the Border Prince. Instead it was a patchwork of war bands working together for their own goals. The biggest of these war bands was Vanacyr's army before Xizamiron took command of it. Since the Border Prince region was so large, Vanacyr (under order's from Xizamiron) split up the army into smaller forces called banners. Some of the banners were mostly made up of one war band or another. In many ways each of the banners has their own story to tell.

Pandemonium - Xizamiron personal banner whose members he had hand picked himself. And he picked a little of everything the army has to offer. Many speculated that Xizamiron made his choices because he wanted as much variety as possible. Others think it was because he wanted his banner to be a mini version of the entire force. Other more sinisterly think it was so he could keep an eye on every faction in the army. The truth was that Xizamiron did not care who was in his banner and he solely picked members randomly.

Vanacyr's Blade - Every member of Vanacyr's war band was extremely loyal to her. Nevertheless she had an inner circle of followers whom loyalty went beyond the norm. This inner circle was called Vanacyr's Blade and nearly every non-members goals was to get promoted to it. Vanacyr's Blade had two parts; guards and students. The highest skilled warriors in the army were assign to the Vanacyr's Blade to serve as Vanacyr's personal bodyguards. The group rarely leaves her side. The other part of the Vanacyr's Blade were her sorcerous students. Vanacyr has numerous mages studying under her. They practically worship Vanacyr and her lessons. The Vanacyr's Blade banner was mainly composed of Vanacyr herself, the remain bodyguards Xizamiron didn't take with him and about half of her students. It was rounded out with a few of her 'basic' troops from her original army and some of the monsters Xizamiron subjugated.

Sun of Corruption - This banner is nearly entirely made up from a single war band, one that Vanacyr's people almost attacked on sight. That was because at a distance these warriors resemble holy knights. It would be easy to confused them with knights from famous holy orders ... at a distance. Up close there was no doubt these warriors were empowered by Chaos. They rode horses that rotted the land with every step. The stronger warriors glowed with a divine radiates. A light that withers planet life. Vanacyr has no idea who these warriors were nor why they are willing to help as they immediately join without concern for payment. She had the feeling the Cabal had already arrange some kind of deal with these strange warriors. They kept to themselves and refuse to talk about their history. Vanacyr never pressed the issued. She had more urgent concerns and if these warriors do back stab her later, she was fine dealing with them then. In the meantime she put the remaining warriors into a single banner and called them 'Sun of Corruption'.

Blood Rage - Berserkers! These blood thristy fanatical warriors were hard to control and nearly every war band had a contingent of them. There was even a war band made up entirely of berserkers. Most berserkers ranged from distrusting magic to out right hatred of it. Considering that the army was commanded by sorcerers caused the berserkers to be even more violet and uncontrollable than normal. Vanacyr decided to put most of the berserkers in one banner and let them go off cause as much destruction as they want. She figured this would undoubtedly cause trouble down the line but at least she doesn't have to deal with them immediately.
