The Order of the Knights of the Graal have been champions of the good and just throughout the ages of Lyonesse. Under High King Mark, the Order was relatively obscure, nestled in the highlands of the northwest - overshadowed by larger and richer knightly orders.
After the Deluge, Monsalvat - seat of the sacred Graal and Spear - became a beacon of hope and heroism to what remained of Lyonesse Above. King Amfortas had some dealings with Amber, but it was very rare to see or hear of Amfortas outside of Monsalvat. The Order was a reclusive one. None outside of the Order have ever claimed to have seen the Castle Monsalvat - which lay somewhere in the shadow of Mount Salvat.
Tragically, the Graal was stolen from Monsalvat - by the Black Knights. All those knights who are seen were reported to age tremendously. The Order was dying without the Graal, and the legendary Spear of Destiny was nowhere to be found. The end times were upon them.
But the Graal was retrieved by a group of heroes, in a final desperate quest. The Order yet stands, but not without loss. King Amfortas is dead, as are many others such as Sir Duane and Sir Alden. Yet the Graal Knights persevere, despite these obstacles.
