A branch of the church of Solaris dedicated to the hunting of beings that are harmful to humanity, the Cloister operates on a system of laws that some consider questionable, but that the Cloister believes in absolutely. In addition to demons and undead, they kill Witches, Warlocks, and Necromancers on sight, and believe in imprisoning Sorcerers and Wizards. Druids are suspect, as are Oracles, but they rarely bother them in light of the other beings they are required to hunt. The Cloister is made up of Clerics, Paladins, and Hunters, the latter of which are their staple. No know knows much about Hunters, but their handiwork can be seen throughout Selera. The common people are divided. Many feel safe that the Cloister is here, but others have heard the whispers of what happens to those that the Hunters do not tolerate.
Since the takeover of the Illumian Empire, the Cloister has been outlawed. They continue to operate in secrecy, as much as they can, but the more power they exert, the more obvious their presence becomes. For this reason, many capable, devout Hunters have been lost. Those who remain struggle to have even a fraction of the influence they had before. Rogue mages run rampant.
