Villeins of Vallation

 

The Bulwark stands, and we beside it.

Villein (vi-leyn) - n - Member of a class of partially free persons under a feudal system, who are as serfs with respect to their lord but had the rights and privileges of freemen with respect to others.

Vallation (va-ley-shuh n) - n - A rampart or entrenchment.

 
 
 
Backstory/Breakdown:
 
The Villeins of Vallation are a brotherhood of sorts- a group of comrades who saw Sylvanas' vision... or moreso, heard it from her own mouth, and are sworn to defend the Bulwark against the 'outside' world. Operating under the standard Forsaken hierarchy, those who call themselves a member of this group invariably name themselves a protector of their Forsaken kin. First spawned under the command of the Banshee Queen to prepare for an invasion from the east- those who scrambled to build up the Bulwark, be they stonemasons, scouts, crude laborers or the soldiers themselves. Each man who had involved himself with the Bulwark the can be called a Villein.
 
The duties of the Villeins are straightforward;
 
1) Obey the Dark Lady's will.
2) Safeguard the border against outside threats. ( Be they of the Alliance or the Scourge )
3) Process and inspect goods passing through the Bulwark.
4) Confirm and identify all relevant paperwork of those who wish to enter the Glade.
5) Hunt down illegal entities within Forsaken territory, be they spies, smugglers or simply malicious entities.
 
Each member of the Villeins lie within the standard Forsaken military ranks and any 'rank' given by the Brotherhood does not represent anything further than a growing amount of respect from the brotherhood itself. A recommendation from a member of the brotherhood, on the other hand, may prove a viable way to acquire a rank in the Forsaken armed forces.

Ranks/Roles:

Lookout - The rank of those new to the brotherhood. A placeholder until one's skills can be properly observed and another rank be assigned. No brother or sister stays a 'lookout' for long, as their skills will often be needed elsewhere. ( Compare to Troopers/Regulars from the Forsaken Ranks. )

Sentry - The bulk of the guards who stand watch at the Bulwark. The Sentries are the run-of-the-mill guards who stand ready, should the bulwark ever come under assault or a suspicious element would attempt to pass through. Sentries are typically charged with inspecting cargo as it passes through and checking any required paperwork for the cargo or passengers. ( Compare to Regulars through Dreadguards from the Forsaken Ranks. )

Picket - Those trained in and specializing in tracking down and eliminating threats to Forsaken security. Although a job normally left to the Dark Rangers, the Pickets are skilled outriders, and some do so much as savor the thrill of the hunt when something so wise as a sentient being is involved. ( Compare to Regulars through Dreadguards from the Forsaken Ranks. )

Warden - ( Open Slots: 3/3 ) An officer rank, and typically there are only ever three. Each warden stands to oversee an element of the lower brotherhood, and there would stand to be a Warden of each the Sentries, the Pickets and the Lookouts. Each serves the important role of identifying if and when their respective 'underlings' would best be reassigned to another division. Wardens are often high-ranking Forsaken members, to begin with, and will have some influence in those circles. Trustees will often dispense news to the Wardens, who will in turn, relay that information to their direct underlings as is relevant. ( Compare to Dreadguards through Generals from the Forsaken Ranks. )

Curator - Reserved for members of the brotherhood who do not seek to actively participate, but hold high rank or esteem within the Forsaken populace and wish to stand as representative to the Villeins' cause. The Curators are often called upon to 'pull strings' when the Villeins require such things- such as when an agent of the Brotherhood has proven themselves adequate or has brought great shame and deserves a demotion. ( No corresponding rank, but reserved for those holding the title Executor or higher, though some Dreadlieutenants could hold the role. )

Trustee - A council, proportionate to the size of the brotherhood itself. These are the 'leaders' of the Villeins of Vallation and often are the ones to make the major decisions, especially when concerning the brotherhood itself. Although the Wardens are typically left to discern the day-to-day affairs of the organization, and are trusted with the power to handle most issues, the Trustees are powerful more in the bureaucratic sense. The Trustees have the ears of the Curators, and, in the end, are most in touch with the will and wiles of the Banshee queen. ( Does not correspond with a Forsaken rank. A merit-based role that is awarded to those who prove worthy. )
