Experiments of the Obsidian Order, the Diobarach are engineered through the use of alchemy, black magic, and elemental magic. Originally ordinary people that would hardly be missed, they were created to protect the people of the land, regardless of political affiliation, from the darker forces unleashed in this world, and to protect the Obsidian Order as they continue to work towards containing the darkness throughout.
The Obsidian Order is a faction of spellcasters and their network that has united after the Tower of Will incident. With the intentions of righting the wrongs caused by the tragic event, they work together to research and find ways to accomplish their task. The order seeks to contain the black spirits that plague the lands, return them to their own world, and protect the citizens from the monsters that now lurk in the darkness. In order to adapt to new and still-opposing threats, the order also hires guards and mercenaries to help their endeavors.

Though primarily supported by the merchants, the League employs men and women of different specialties, including guards, blacksmiths, farmers, and business owners.
