Bureau 13 File: This fighting order, or Paladins is presented as a matter of information. The cult of Tesral is common in the Eyrian Empire but not seen outside of it. No Judges have come to Earth seeking to establish a church. It is noted that Jerlane the Eyrian Ambassador is a member of this order which associated with the Judges of Tesral.

As is usual all information presented here is from the cult viewpoint and no allowance has been made for Earth viewpoints or veracity. The Agent is urged to never argue religion with a priest. This is a pointless exercise that makes enemies from potential friends.
