Codex text

There is a legend in the Free Marches regarding "the Fallen:" a cadre of knights from various Marcher cities that formed to fight the growing power of Orlais in the Exalted Age.

To the Orlesians, these knights were little better than bandits... but to the Marchers they were heroes, warriors that fought for freedom and autonomy. Most of the Fallen died on the Fields of Ghislain in 5:40 Exalted, defending the newly-crowned King Tylus of Nevarra from Orlesian attack. They held their line against a mounted chevalier charge, managing to keep Tylus alive long enough to retreat—and are credited with Nevarra's continued independence everywhere outside Nevarra itself.
