The Blood Scholars
The Blood Scholars are a militant orginization which formed after the Meltdown. They were college professors, scientists, librarians and bookworms, who realized that with the collapse of civilization came the collapse of all knowledge. Arming themselves with leftover weapons and donning dark red robes, they formed the Blood Scholars and dedicated their order to protecting books at all costs. They built many temples and towers across the world, killing any who would try to steal their knowledge. The Blood Scholars welcome all to read and learn at their temples, but to those who would touch or harm a book, the only sentence is death.
