The Elites are Members of First Legion, First Cohort-Elites, of the Military of Amber. They act as guards in the Castle Amber, as personal protective personnel for royals, and in Embassies.

Elites often serve as messengers for the crown. Entrance into the Elites bestows one of the lower orders of Knighthood in Amber.

One thing to be said for the Elites; Many would be legendary heroes in their home realms. Some were heroes before being brought to Amber. These are warriors of the highest regards.

Listed here are those who have served as members of the Elites. Not all are currently active.

Protective Service Detail Elites are a lot like Secret Service agents for royals. Most royals at some point dismiss their Elite Protector. Some become boon companions with them.

Gangdis of Casowill.jpg Sirgangdis2.jpg

  • Lieutenant. Unofficially Captain due to the Valorous Knight of Amber accolade.

For centuries a motly mostly Retired Elite, aging badly. A known lush. Prone to sleeping on duty. Occasionally brought back for low-priority assignments.

While all Elites receive a knighthood, Gandis received the Valorous Knight of Amber, First Class, during the Siege of Bunny Free. This highest of knightly orders gives him a great deal of leeway among the soldiers of Amber. See Amber_Knightly_Order

While often an object of scorn or pity, Gandis has many strong admirers including Prince Benedict, Prince Gerard, King Corwin, Prince Julian, Princess Fiona, Princess Flora, and Dworkin himself. He is considered a legend and is often found among recent promotes to the Elites. He is a frequent presence, if not officially an instructor at Rasak. Nasty Place.

Gangdis was assigned to Protective Services for Lord Relmopator Barimen, Son of Satura. It is unclear if this was a prank on Realmer or a punishment for Gandis. This was during the decades when Lord Realmapator spent nearly all his time in the Dungeons of Amber.

While serving Lord Relmapator in Adagalask Sir Gangdis was effected by the same effect that occurs in Amber regarding aging and enthusiasm. (See Aging in Amber) His sudden youth is as much a surprise to him as it is to anyone.

He took her into shadow privately. She was surprisingly enrolled at Rasak and graduated respectably. When she returned she was sequestered in the Urien Estates for several months. Then she returned as Vialle Lady in Waiting, acting as she always has.

However, she now carries a small pattern blade strapped to her thigh. While Cordelia Feldane is officially Queen Vaille's Elite, Lucille is just a step away. It is rumored that she has special orders in case of an emergency.

She is young for an Elite. Just over 30 years of age,(Not counting her tenure at Nasty Place), including her youth in Dreana, her elevation to the Elites is controversial. Service to a member of the Royal Family not known for dangerous behavior is seen as a cautious step in her career.

She is notable for an encounter while on duty in Calrabon, where she was assaulted by a giant red bear and managed to slay it. Seriously wounded, she recovered at Vulsar Base. A noble family of Calrabon who were endangered by the bear she slew presented her with a fine bear cloak enchanted for comfort regardless of temperature.

Her aloof and proper behavior has made her few friends in the military of Amber but her fighting prowess has earned her much respect. The speed she was ushered into the elites is highly unusual and is a cause for anger in some. She was discovered in Shadow when Dalt brought his son Macsen to Amber. Her aid and service impressed Dalt who called in favors to get her to attend Rasak with Macsen. She has little experience in the Amber military therefore and few of the Elites have befriended her except for Darcy Rozero and Roger of Garn.

Even of Hale-Retired[edit]

Even of hale.jpg[[10]] Retired

A weapons instructor for hire to the nonmilitary general public. Retired Elite Sergeant.

Not a mercenary, and he hates the accusation. While he retired under honorable conditions he is mostly ignored by members of the royalty and the nobility and high ranking members of the military. He claims his discharge occurred for rank insubordination during the battles after the Battle of Patternfall. While the war was won there were many residual battles across shadow where Amber units ended chaosian control of certain shadows. He claims he assumed command from a noble, who will remain unnamed, who was failing miserably in the heat of battle. Since Benedict and Gerard are cordial with him at CCC events the general membership of the CCC assume he is telling the truth.

Still, there is something of a disputable stink lingering over him that he believes is completely unjustified and he may be correct.

His services as Arms Instructor are highly sought after and he has a reputation as a fine swordsman and a patient instructor. He has retired as a participant at CCC events after a series of victories over several years.
