The Order of the Lamp, sometimes called the Lamp Knights, was an order of knights that acted as the protectors of the Mages Guild. It was formed a year after the Mages Guild itself was formed, as hired guards were not enough to protect the guild in dangerous territories.
Its members were organized under the Palatinus, who was commanded directly by the Archmagister. They were given appropriate rights to certain services of the Mages Guild. A knight's rank within the Order approximated the individual's rank within the Guild, in terms of rights and privileges. The Order only recruited those who had already demonstrated fighting skills and were in good standing with the Mages Guild. A contingent of the order was led by Vanus Galerion to confront Mannimarco and they participated in the resulting battle. After he became Archmagister, Hannibal Traven commanded the Order of the Lamp to arrest Magister Ulliceta gra-Kogg of Orsinium for necromancy but she escaped. The current status of the Order in the aftermath of the collapse of the Mages Guild is unknown.
