Among the initiates of the Wardens, there are those who excel in their training far beyond that of their peers. These individuals are capable of truly incomprehensible feats of martial strength, such as wielding a pair of the Wardens’ signature heavy voulges with the same grace as their brethren muster with a single blade. These individuals are rare and gifted and are quickly perceived by their trainers.
These select few undergo a far more extreme regiment of training than the standard Warden, learning to master the art of warfare in ways few can imagine. To complete special training, the initiate must learn to fight within a specially modified suit of Warden armor, one that features a pair of shoulder-mounted Vortex Cannons, the very same weapons used by the warjacks of House Vyre. The energy required to power this armor and the force of the cannons firing make simply wearing the armor a lethal prospect. Those who survive the ordeal are awarded the rank of Warden Executioner, earning them a lifetime of fear, awe, and respect from their kin.
