The name of the Heldannic Order

by Bruce Heard

Why did they derive their name from the hero of the area which they just conquered. I don't understand this.

Good question -- two answers...

The first is to support their original desire to break away from Hattias (and the Storm Soldiers), where the original Order of Vanya had been created. Whether they succeeded is debatable.

The second is that they wanted to get the message out that they planned to stay on this land. There would not be a "Heldannic" Order without the land of Heldann. This message was addressed to the native Freeholders and the Hattian knights.
