Founded by Ondreian Shamsiel Faendryl, Patriarch XVII of House Faendryl, the Palestra was a place for the education and training of the finest warriors, especially those intended to protect sorcerers from summoned demons. The students are especially well versed in theories of magic and how to counter summoned beings. Those who have finished their training can be directly hired by individual sorcerers as personal guards, for a fee. Warriors from the Palestra directly contribute to the Basilican Guard. The Palestra is headed by a Palestrian Prefect, a position which also carries the rank of Archchancellor.
There are four ranks of Palestra that are determined at Palestra Trials (from lowest to highest):
|Paele||Two clasped hands|
|Sarissa||A pair of crossed spears|
|Blade||A pair of crossed blades|
