Mage: The Gun Quarter
Knights of the Cyber-Brotherhood
In real life, the members of the Knights of the Cyber-Brotherhood might look like software analysts or investment bankers, but on the Digital Web, they are a formidable martial force: clad in Gothic Plate and wielding swords, maces, and axes, they wreak havoc on Iteration X installations. The anarchistic members of the Knights of the Cyber-Brotherhood decided to take arms against the hegemony of the Iteration X in a decidedly ironic way; by organizing themselves as a strictly regimented, hierarchical knightly order, akin to the Hospitaller Knights. The ranks of the Cyber-Brotherhood are composed of Scribes, Squires, Knights, and their Lord Commander, Lord Greymane. Many members of the Order take the knightly trappings very seriously, even going so far as to adopt faux-Elizabethan speech. Others, like Lord Greymane, are more pragmatic, but enjoy the pageantry and symbolism the Brotherhood provides.Despite the name, the Order is open to women as well; however, there are currently few women knights in the Order, as the emphasis by some members on chivalry ironically makes the Order something of a hostile place for women. Lord Greymane does what he can to put a stop this kind of behaviour, but he can only do so much.
The Knights of the Cyber-Brotherhood initially came into conflict with Sarah Giles when she was investigating Captain Chaos‘s Chaos Sphere. After traveling to Captain Chaos’s sanctum in Brighton, she returned to the Digital Web to discover that the Knights had erected an encampment outside the Chaos Sphere and her recently formatted sector of the Web. Sarah eventually managed to meet with Lord Greymane, however, and he and Sarah pledged mutual cooperation against Iteration X.
