“We’re all friends of The Order, here!”

– common refrain of travelers not looking for trouble

Iron is just one example of a material a Confessor’s stole may be made out of and represents the vanguard of Confessors who operate in the field to enforce The Word’s justice. Other materials include Gold – representing administrative positions, Ivory – representing high-ranking religious authorities, and Ebony – representing agents involved in The Order’s most covert operations. In some instances, a Confessor’s stole may be composed of multiple different materials, though these are most commonly worn during ceremonial events and indicate a Confessor’s breadth of experience and qualifications within The Order of Truth.
