Like any great adventure hero's are typically not born, they are made. The Knights of Eorzea are no differnt. The earlier members were seen as the wicks to a candle that had just been lit and the source of their flame coming to them by the name of Tyrion, a Member of the Oracles of Empyrean. Claiming that his group was serving the greater good, that they strived to liberate the Ala Mhigan's from their current plight. He had seen this ragtag group of Four hovering around the Refugee's of Lost Hope. Which this ragtag group was comprised of Ryslo Suramlo, Bard Arkwright, Cyneler Fenrir & Julietta Foxglove. This meeting between Tyrion and the Knights of Eorzea would brief at best. They would exchange names and briefly converse, as the mention of work loomed between the two sides which seem to entice the Knights of Eorzea and so they took it. After all they were newly formed and eager to get to work and the job to assist the refugee's of Little Ala Mhigo seemed to be right up alley. So spending a few more nights at Lost Hope, the Knights ensured things were settled enough there before they headed off to Little Ala Mhigo where Greimort, Knife , Aubriene, Natalia, Natsu and Hainer would Join. They would take up jobs that involved scouting, foraging for food & Hunting, as well as slaying creatures that made their lives difficult. Their last Mission in Thalana involved them defending a make shift outpost deep in the desert where they would discover Imperial Insurgent's trying to play off the attack as if it came from the Amalja'a. At the end of this Chapter though, Natalia would disappear. Her fate was left unknown.

The Knights of Eorzea once again set out, this time focusing on taking up work rather then chasing rumors. They would take on jobs from both Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah and Ishgard. Since work was regular they knew they couldn't take all the jobs that were available to them so they had to pick and choose the jobs that required the most immediate attention. In Thanalan they took up a job that involved a Miqo'te who was cursed to live as immortal crystal. Hoping to resolve that issue they came up short when they were denied access to the area for further investigation after having faced a enemy that could have offered such. The reason they couldn't finalize the task was due to the intervention of a group that called themselves 'The Enclave' (Mischief Coven). They also took on two Jobs back to back in the Region of Falcon's Nest. Here they followed a trail of Mirror's being utilized to cause havok to the locals as people were going missing left and right in the region. Over all they were successful. They also took up a job in Bronze Lake which involved Missing Noble Ladies from the springs by an attacker who utilized mist as a means to cover their tracks. Engaging these indivdiuals the knights would prevail and the trouble at Bronze Lake would come to an end.
They had meeting after all these jobs were done to discuss the similairites between the tasks. It was clear Mirror's were present in all three locations except for Bronze Lake which oddly enough had reflections every where as the water at the lake was acting as a Massive Mirror to project the mist. They also discovered that the same 'man' was causing the issue's at all three locations. This discovered they quickly cross referenced the material they had and came to a conclusion the caster, the problem maker must be hiding in Central Coerthas. The Knights of Eorzea determind that they needed more knowledge as well as needing to find this mans location. Two teams were setup, one set to Ul'dah the other sent to Scout the Region. The team in Ul'dah came up with a great deal of information while the Scouting party found the entrance to a Cave which was protected by a barrier. All that set up, the two teams came together at the barrier. The Research form Ul'dah would help them deactivate the barrier and thus they went to confront the villian at the heart of all this madness.
Here they came face to face with an Oracle. The Knights learned a bit about these Oracles from the exchange of words given. The Oracles are Scholar's from the Time of the War of the Magi. They escaped death by utilizing the stream of life and they managed to regain their memories by the aid of Tyrion who was touched by a Echo like gift which preserved his. Tyrion discovered this Oracle of Mirror's and helped him secure the Relic before he untimely death in Book I. The Relic restored the Oracle of Mirror's memory as well as the other Oracles. This information was useful. Soon the Knights and the Oracle came head to head. The Oracle would be defeated and the Knights would be left with just more Questions...
One thing to note from this Book, A Female Oracle came in on the scene during the Fight with the Oracle of Mirror's. She broke a curse that was placed upon Bard which ultimately allowed the Knights to finally Finish off the Oracle of Mirror's. Her name was Mura.

After the events of Little Ala Mhigo and doing a lot of good with the Refugee's as well as the problems that revolved around them the Knight's of Eorzea were asked by Tyrion (Member of the Oracles of Empyrean) to proceed to the North Shroud as he would require them to do more work for him. Of course the Knight's had no reason to deny his request, after all they built a bond with the people of Little Ala Mhigo and gained their trust which was difficult but they overcame this difficulty. So packing up they proceeded to the Twelveswood. Not at all was easy though, In fact as they left they came to a part in their path that had strewn all across the ground parts and pieces of a few Ala Mhigan's. They looked into this, and found strong evidence that there was a fight and struggle. It was here they found a Bag seeping with blood through the linen, and within the bag the Head of Tyrion. With their employer dead, they still proceeded to the Shroud where they believed they could still do good while wanting to come to further answer's around why this happend to Tyrion in the first place. Well they would get their Answer Quickly, The Knights would be engaged against a Scouting Party from Little Ala Mhigo which immediately went on about how the Knight's Betrayed them. That they knew the Knights of Eorzea were double Agents for the Empire. Of course this was not true but they wouldn't listen, after all they were the one's that severed Tyrion's head. Combat Ensued and it wasn't going in the favor of the Knight's. That is until reason was struck upon the Little Ala Mhigan's and they came to realize that Tyrion had given his life to set them on course to kill the Knights of Eorzea. With that settled and no reason given why Tyrion would do this they proceeded to their designation of Hyrstmill.
Hyrstmill, Served as the Knight's second home. Here they would get to know the local's as well as continue to do their work. They began to take on jobs crafted by their own vices which involved tasks like Patrolling the Shroud, Securing Southern Part of Coerthas, Defending Hrystmill from Rogue Elements and wandering Patrol's of Imperials. What was odd was the fact Imperials came that far into the Shroud, of course this would be later discovered in the book that they were directed to do so. Regardless the Knights took on many tasks while in the Shroud and it was during this time the following people came on Board: Waht'ya, Xilatz, Avelyn, Keelindsey, Sui, Sehra, Dzoldzaya, Simeon and Hainer. Though after a brief mission, Dzoldzaya disappeared into the Night as well as Greimort and Hainer. Anyroad.. Toward the end of this Book of events, Xilatz had gone missing for a week and that is when the strange missive came. It told the Knights of Eorzea to proceed to Coerthas and to a very specific location as Xilatz had been taken captive and all the man wanted from the Knights as a chance to speak. So the Knights proceeded to the designation knowing full well it was a trap to find Waht'ya already up against the man who authored the note. It's important to know this Man utilized a strange weapon that looked like a sword but was thinner (A rapier) and in his other hand a Crystal of Purple Hew (A Catalyst). The man would disengaged with Waht'ya and begin dialogue with those present. To sum up the conversation, the Man demanded that the Knights do one more task for the Oracles of Empyrean and in return he would give them Xilatz without a fight. The Catch was Xilatz would have been branded with a mark that would ensure the Knight's had no choice but to finish the Job he would give. What was that Job? The Oracle wanted the Knights to go into Ul'dah and Kill a Flame Captain. Why didn't he do this himself? He couldn't because his hands were dirty and he'd be found out swiftly while the Knights of Eorzea have been building up their reputation and making a good name for themselves would not have been discovered as killers. Nearly agreeing, the Man was ready to Mark Xilatz but didn't have the chance as Keelindsey leapt in and intercepted the Oracle. A Fight Broke out and the Knights won, though with his final Breath the Oracle proclaimed that the Knights would be Marked now as well. With that, the Knights decided it was time to leave Hyrstmill.
