Saint of Battle
The Saints of Battle are warriors who have achieved a signature victorious battle or signature heroic defeat, considered mighty enough by the other Saints of Battle to accord them this peerage. It is considered a Knighthood in nearly all Tosain & York realms. In many realms the arrival of a Saint of Battle causes opposing warriors to rethink the question of conflict.
Warriors can achieve many awards. 3 Awards are required to be invited to the Council of Battle and vote on new recipients. Current members of the Council of Battle include King Alexandir KosKorag, Mitchot Kandif, Jake Whitetail, Kirgor the Red, Peredur, Conf, Grog, Mikon, and many others.
