The Knights of Golarion are a military organization with strong ties to the Pact Worlds, the church of Iomedae, and the children of the missing planet Golarion.[1] They are dedicated to promoting justice and righteousness in all its forms, spreading their goddess-granted understanding of morality throughout the Pact Worlds and beyond.

Structure

The Knights of Golarion mix military structure and ranks with older ideas of knights-errant and feudal lords. Rank-and-file soldiers operate under the command of officer-knights, with knight-lieutenants and higher ranks sometimes assigned to "errant duty", in which Knights are trusted to seek out injustice and deal with it.[1] Though worship of Iomedae is not a requirement for membership, all Knights take a sacred vow to uphold the Code of the Inheritor, a 10-part oath requiring courage, fair treatment of prisoners, honor, and temperance in action.[1]

Relationship with Church of Iomedae

The Knights of Golarion work closely with the church of Iomedae, though they're careful to maintain a distinction between the Knights and the official church hierarchy.[1] The Knights see Iomedae as the patron of humanity and the other refugee races of Golarion.
