The soldiers called their group the Hard Line, and it was not unearned. They were freeholders sworn to one Harwen Raleigh, a noble who had distinguished himself during the Orlais-Ferelden conflict. But they ended the war in disgrace, and their patron was even denied the return of his title and land. I knew nothing of this at the time. I would come to regret it later.
