Background

There is a good reason why the motto of the Military Orders’ Knights Commander is Fides Intrepida (“fearless faith”), a compelling and unequivocal reason: they are all men and women who have proven their faith and who put their lives on the line to lead their troops, always in the vanguard in battle. The name “Knight Commander” designates a high-ranking officer of any Military Order who commands their troops right on the battlefield. You will never see a Knight Commander issuing orders from the comfort of their headquarters or from behind the screens of their office once the fighting has begun. Regardless of which unit of the Order they have risen from, these brave warriors’ home is the front line, because in their capacity as leaders and officers, they all embody the best values of Christianity and know that their duty as good Christians is to evangelize by example. A Knight Commander is a true warrior who will never ask their troops to do anything that they wouldn’t do themselves, and they always find occasions to prove it. There’s no more hazardous position in the leadership of any Military Order than this one. The casualty ratio Knights Commander in battle is one of the highest in the entire PanOceanian Military Complex, a bloodletting the NeoVatican Curia had to put an end to on account of a direct recommendation by the Hexahedron. Each time one of them fell in battle, it represented a huge loss of experience and resources that seriously harmed all Military Orders, without exception, since the worsening of combat in Paradiso. However, since it was neither feasible nor desirable to change these officers’ idiosyncrasies, the Curia demanded from the General Chapters of all Orders that the Knights Commander be better equipped so as to increase their survivability in combat.

Thus, they were supplied with holographic-mimesis and comms-shielding equipment, to confound the enemy and ensure that they were no longer obvious targets for enemy snipers. Although initially the Grand Masters and other leaders of the Military Orders were afraid that these officers would reject such impositions, they soon realized that their concerns were unfounded and that their trust in the virtue of these men and women had been insufficient, since all of them had taken a vow of obedience, a vow that their Christian honor made unbreakable. For every Knight Commander, this gear represents a new opportunity to remain faithful to their motto, a loyalty that they practice to the letter, for both words that make up that motto. On the one hand their unwavering faith in God guides them in their strife in a way that is always righteous, for it’s an expression of the Divine Will of which they are the executors. And on the other hand it bolsters their fearlessness, because now they have a tool that allows them to take even more risks than before. It’s important to remember that the title of Knight Commander derives from the word “command,” and this is what these officers do, but always in the vanguard and looking danger in the eye, just as their tradition and the Military Orders’ history of great victories dictates.
