The Risen Guard is an elite Sothan military unit serving Osirion’s ruling dynasty, the Forthbringers. Each member has died and has been brought back to life. As such, the Risen Guard is fanatically loyal to the Forthbringers. New members give up their former identities and ranks, sometimes forsaking their previous names.
The Risen Guard is always in the vicinity of the royal family. Standard doctrine requires that the pharaoh should always see at least three Risen Guard in any direction he looks: “One to die for him, one to kill for him, and one to carry him to safety”
The actual operation of the Risen Guard is under the command of the Khopeshman of Sothis
