|The Wolves of the Dark Empire are terror incarnate. They are not the largest Order: there are three or four Hounds to every Wolf, nor do they have the sorcerous power of the Serpents or the poisons of the Flies. Even so, no other Order has conquered so great a territory, nor with so much bloodshed. Until they came to the Kamarg, the Wolves were utterly undefeated. They might have lost individual battles but no force on Earth had opposed the Wolves for long and lived. The men of the Wolves are the elite warriors of Granbretan. Their Grand Constable, Meliadus, is a tactical genius to equal the famed Count Brass and he knows how to train and lead his men and how to inspire them to deeds of great heroism in battle. Every Wolf knows he is worth ten lesser men and they would die for each other and for their Constable without a second thought. The Legions of the Wolf are the single most powerful and successful fighting force in all of Europe and they will suffer no rival to eclipse them.
