Gwwlogo.png The Guild Wars Wiki has an article on Order of the Sunspears.
Formed long ago in the history of Elona, the Order of the Sunspears was an elite cadre of guardians devoted to the protection of the continent as a whole, without answering to either of the three provinces (Istan, Kourna, or Vabbi). 250 years prior to the events of Guild Wars 2 they defeated Abaddon, subsequently allowing Kormir to become the new Goddess of Truth.

The peace brought about by this victory did not last. For the purpose of defeating Abaddon, the order had awakened Palawa Joko, the undead lord who once posed the greatest threat to Elona's safety. In time Palawa Joko gathered his strength and all but wiped out the Order of the Sunspears, scattering them throughout the land as he systematically conquered the continent they swore to protect. All that remains of the Order are half-forgotten legends and wandering mystics who cling to the Sunspear's code while constantly witnessing the results of their failure.

Many of the Sunspears swore allegiance to Joko after his rise to power in exchange for wealth and prestige. These traitors and those of their brethren who were raised into undeath now form part of the Mordant Crescent, who still hunt those who would attempt to uphold the oaths of the Sunspears.
