Iridescent Order

The Iridescent Order was a powerful group of Shadurian wizards, who served the lost realm of Sha'Dur for over a thousand years.

Legend has it, the first wizards of the Iridescent Order learned their skills from the ancient, alien race called the "Spell Weavers."

Based in the city of Garuda, the Order once wielded the secret knowledge to control dragons, and to create many of the magical creatures found today on Oris. Their most notable creation was the Rakshasa, a magical hybrid race of beings—part cat, part human.

The Rakshasa were created by the order to serve as thralls of their masters in Sha'Dur. The Iridescent Order also used their magical powers to breed the race of Qualons and Troglodytes, and enslaved the race of Tasloi.

Through many strange experiments, the Order magically bred creatures known today as the Chimera, Manticore, and the Minotaur, as well as countless other creatures.

Ironically, the Rakshasa; the most infamous creatures ever bred by the Order, were directly responsible for the downfall of their realm of Sha'Dur.

For, in the year AR 237, the Rakshasa betrayed their hated masters and made a pact with Mazur the Destroyer of the Eloysian Empire to conquer Sha'Dur and destroy its capital city of Garuda.

Rumor has it, that even though the realm of Sha'Dur and Garuda are long gone, the order itself has survived into the present day.
