This Present Darkness
The Order of Templars is the military arm of the Chantry that hunts Apostates and maleficars as well as watches over the mages of the Circle of Magi. Templars have the ability to dispel magic and inhibit spellcasting. This helps them control the mages. A group of Templars and one Knight-Commander are assigned to each Circle tower and the majority of the Chantry’s churches. Driven by their faith the Templars are one of the most skilled and feared forces in Thedas.
