The Anna Sila were an organization which was formed during the time of the Great Scourging. Their aim was to cleanse the whole of Gaiana from the Daemons of Chaos who had at that time over-run the planet's surface. Most of the Mannish population of Gaiana had hidden underground, in the Urloc caves of Mailanu.
The Anna Sila took the role of Demon Hunters, and with their army, the Cor Rogurth, vanquished most of the Unlcean. They then lead the peoples of Gaiana back to the surface.
The Anna Sila were formed by the six Magi, with the aid of the Gods. In return for their services they were granted many gifts, most importantly demon-slyaing weapons and longevity of life. There were originally seventeen members of the group, but only a fraction remain alive.
Bisha, the Northern Magus, has recently opened a college dedicated to the training of a new generation of Anna Sila. Situated in Iaur Angudum, this 'College of Purging; has strict entry requirements.

* Llyogren was eventually possessed by a Demon of the Fourth Pale. He slew Cremill, and nearly opened the Doors of Galen, which kept the demons in Mailanu. He was eventually slain by Grimbold, his brother. Despite his name extension, he is still honoured amongst the Light-Givers, if not by historians.
The Anna Sila in Ardadain
Following in the footsteps of Bisha, Lexus has recently started up a new eastern College dedicated to the Light-Givers. Situated in Angost, below the Temple of Eleniel, the Hall of Purging is dedicated to the training of new members. The Anna Sila are an extension to the Starlords and follow most of the guidelines of the Clerics and Paladins of that religion. However, the Anna Sila are a secret branch, and rarely reveal themselves. They are dedicated to the cleansing of Ardadain, and the slaying of Demons and extra-planar beings. Their current leader is Archdeacon Ulmoth Kenridge, a Half-Elven warrior orignally from Edhelnore. They are also known as the Order of Galen, though they have no holy regalia. The Star-Lords are currently being taught by Borath, with occassional assistance form Grimbold and Canus.
Members of the Anna Sila are chosen from the ranks of the Starlords, so most members possess most of the skills of the Clerics or Paladins. The Anna Sila are secretive, and they dress themselves in civilian clothing usually, or the normal Starlord garb. When in the Hall, or on official duty, they wear long white robes, and silver armour, and great winged helmets. As they are secret, most of the Starlords are unaware of their existance, and only Sindara and her closest associates know where they are located. Hence, the only way of joining is by invite, and even then the prospective member must promise not to reveal anything, on refusal.
At the moment, most of the Anna Sila are situated in Vancumar, and are working closely with the Order of Kalina. Additionally, a number of the Order are travelling the realm, after an increase in Demon sightings. The recent incident at Gothmarket has attracted a large number of Light-Givers. Most travelling Anna Sila go alone, occassionally attracting adventurers.
