The Heralds of Kowloon are an exclusive, elite group of soldiers in direct service to her Grace, the Duchess Bhelith of Arleigh. The company numbers 12 in total strength, and each individual is considered the direct voice of the Duchess, as they often carry sensitive messages abroad, acting as diplomats, field agents, and inquisitors to ensure that the Lord Empress’s will is carried out both within and without her domain.

Although no specific requirements have ever been expressed by her Grace, the Heralds are observably all female, and carry at least some Tatya Hini heritage. Rumor speculates that not only are they her direct agents in the realm, but that they also serve sometimes as body-doubles, and that they are magically bound to her by arcane oath.

Each Herald is distinguished by a specific mask, with which they always appear in public, and by which they are identified. Attempting to discern their private identities is an act of Lèse-majesté¸ and is punishable as such under the law, which also makes impeding any member of the small unit an act of rebellion against the Diadem and an act of treason by default.
