Manila By Night
Guardians of the Veil
The Guardians of the Veil believe that there are things that mortal men and women were not meant to know. They point to Paradox and the Abyss as evidence that magic needs to be policed and kept hidden, in order to protect Awakened and Sleepers alike. Acting as magical secret police, the Guardians conceal evidence of magical activity and beasts, by any means necessary.
In the Manila Consilium:
The Guardians of the Veil are easily the scrappiest of the Pentacle orders in Manila, chafing under the local dominion of the Bastion cabal. The Guardians blame the Bastion for inept stewardship of Manila’s arcane sites and artifacts leading to the scattering and loss of much magical lore and artifacts during the disastrous Liberation that razed Old Manila at the end of the Second World War. Their activities in modern nights are a dark reflection of the Mystagogues, with Guardians busy cataloging Hallows, Verges, spiritual incursions and recovered artifacts, but with a greater emphasis on concealment, destruction, and violent preemptive action to contain evidence of magic.
