You came to us in search of a purpose.

And mark this, there is no purpose greater than ours. The world will founder without structure and discipline. It needs leadership to guide it to a new age of stability. It needs those with the will to stamp out the darkness that breeds in the cracks. We do this because we are compelled, by tradition, by loyalty, by laws. Without these, we are just animals. Evil reigns over animals, corrupting and compromising, toppling empires. So our empire must be incorruptible, must be uncompromising. Our conflict must be a righteous one. Your conviction will be tested. But among us, your faith will be unshaken.

Among the Templars.

The Templars are one of the three main factions in the MMO known as Secret World and are in opposition to the Illuminati and the Dragon - like the other factions they seek to control the world but do so under a delusion that they are divine righters of wrong and soldiers in a crusade to wipe out "evil" in society by any means necessary.

Believing themselves pure they are willing to enforce law and order in brutal ways akin to the days of witch-hunting and are seen as "brutes" by the Dragon : yet as with many things, few can argue that some of the most dangerous men on Earth are those who see themselves as "true believers".
