Mage: The Gun Quarter
The Covenant of the Fleur-De-Lis
The Covenant is a multi-national cabal founded in the Middle Ages by alchemists and philosophers who sought purity of the body and the soul. This old and powerful Chantry is based out of a Horizon Realm in the shard realm of Matter, called Elysium. Elysium is a pleasant, tranquil place, and people who stay there do not age. Unfortunately, such a realm requires a great deal of Quintessence, and the Birmingham branch of the Cabal are custodians of the Great Node controlled by the Chantry. This node is under a fountain at the The University of Birmingham, and consequently when on Earth the members of The Order of the Silver Flame call the University home. The Covenant of the Fleur-De-Lis is a powerful cabal, with extensive resources, a phenomenal library of alchemical texts, and a veritable army of servants, from unwitting grad students, to aspiring apprentices, to warriors born and raised in Elysium to defend it.
