The Scarlet Torch
The Scarlet Torch is an independent, medical organization that delivers emergency aid to the innocent who are affected by armed conflict, epidemics, and natural disasters. The Scarlet Torch is known to offer assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
The Scarlet Torch was founded in Caeradan, in 1465 during the War of Frost. The work of The Scarlet Torch is carried out by thousands of healers and other magically inclined professionals, logistical and administrative staff. The vast majority of The Scarlet Torch staff come from the countries where the organization provided medical assistance. Together, they manage projects in more than 60 cities and towns.
Due to their usual operation, medical teams often are near violence, war and other atrocities. As such, The Scarlet Torch employed the former Church of the Burning Light as a permanent addition to its organization. The Brothers of Light form squads known as Peacekeepers, this elite group of paladins serve as the protectors of the innocent and guardians of The Scarlet Torches staff when they are in hostile territory.
