The Mordant Crescent is an elite military unit, originally formed from ex-members of the Order of the Sunspears who, in life or death, bowed to serve Palawa Joko. The group was formed during Joko's invasion and conquering of Elona. Hating any who was more famous than himself, Joko had grown to hate the Sunspears after Kormir's ascension to godhood and the Order's rise to fame. In turn, he had set out to ensure the Sunspears were broken, and had offered the Sunspears fortunes and prestige if they would join his cause. Those who did not accept willingly were enslaved as Awakened and ultimately forced to join anyways.
The Mordant Crescent has grown with new recruits, but from surviving Sunspears and elsewhere, and serve primarily to convert Elonians who had fled north to settle the Crystal Desert, as well as to hunt down the remnants of the Order of Sunspears who aide them. And true enough to Joko's word, the Mordant Crescent is viewed above other Awakened or living forces, both honored and feared among Elonians.
