He was a practitioner of blade magic and led an order of crusaders based at a sword-temple in Procampur. They were usually engaged in providing security at major events and noble galas, as well as guarding visiting dignitaries.[note 1]
↑By the context of the "Class Chronicles: Crusaders, Swordsages, Warblades" article, Oriphaun and his crusader order are implied to follow Torm and are thus likely attached to the House of the Hand. McMaren is listed as a swordsage yet appears in a section about crusaders, suggesting that this in error and that he should be a crusader.
