The order of the Silver Light represents the most honored interests of peace and order. The mayor governments respect their jobs and allow them to work as long as that doesn’t interfere with a mission of the given fleet or local authorities. Before the Galactic Concord created his Star Frontier Branch the Knights traveled the galaxy in their own ships or as
passengers of other races, tracking monsters and evildoers. They helped in colonization of planets, rebellions and wars. In the Third Galactic War their intervention was a decisive factor to end the war and also in the creation of the Galactic Concord. The members are know by a title related to their branch or concentration in the order. For example: Knight Purifier is amember of the Purifier Advance Class. The person in charge of a complete branch is called a Lord Knight. The leader of the complete order is known as Supreme Knight.
The Knights of the Order of the Silver Light follow The Way as their belief and guide.
The two main goals are to achieve balance and to exist in harmony with nature (and with all living beings). There is no deity as such which conceptualizes ultimate reality as a primal energy. This energy is expressed in the world in the form of two equal and opposing forces, the “yin” or passive female force, and the “yang” or active male force. These forces are neither good nor evil, and what is desirable is that they be in balance at all times. The tension between yin and yang creates “qi” (pronounced “chee” and sometimes transliterated as “chi”) or life energy. Qi is found in all things, but particularly living creatures.
The Silver Manacles are used at all times and not many people orders or tries to convince a Silver Knight to remove them. This is considered a breach of trust on the part of the one who is trying to disarm the knight. The knight has to be just, honorable and always trustworthy.

SilverManacles – The symbol of power of theOrder of the Silver Light. They are made of Mithril and worn all the time by members of the order. They gave special powers to the knight that enhance his natural abilities to fight.
