Order of the Temple of Karabor
“An adherence solely to the light is the same as one to the dark. Too far one way, and you lose perspective”
Honorifics: Knights of Karabor, Karabor Knight
The Knights of Karabor were founded on the world of Talus by Zion Morviael under a simple guiding principle: That the galaxy demanded balance. But not in the traditional sense that the Jedi viewed it. Whereas they believed that balance was achieved by wiping out all Sith and dominating with the Light. Zion viewed this as an inherent ideological mistake. For just as the Sith's devotion to the Dark upset the balance of the galaxy, so too did the Jedi's devotion to the Light. And thus the Knights of Karabor were borne.
While they do not worship any aspect of the Force as a divine entity, they do respect the embodiment's of both the Dark and the Light. However, their own focus is upon a more neutral aspect of the Force. To that end, they believe in training and keeping one's thoughts from being clouded by any one side of the Force.
Owing to where the Temple of Karabor exists, the Knights primary area of influence and operation is within the Federation of the Double Worlds. But will work alongside forces within the Corellian Coalition.
When in Public, Members are typically referred to by the title of Knight and then their first or last name, unless their have been bestowed the title of Master. In which case they are referred to as Master and then their first or last name.
When in Private however, Members will greet one another as Brother or Sister and then that person's first name.

Hierarchy of the Order of the Temple of Karabor
Grand Master: Zion Morviael
The rank of Master is bestowed upon only a small handful of members within the Knights of Karabor. This is due to the fact that it is a ceremonial title more than it is recognition of a Knight's skill. Their primary focus is to administer the organization, dealing with assessing potential candidates to join the Order, and promoting Squires to Knights.
The rank of Knight makes up a vast majority of the membership of the Knights of Karabor. After a Squire completes their training, a Master or another Knight may bestow upon them the title of Knight. Once granted the rank of Knight, they are presented with 3 groups into which they will fit into. While it is possible for someone of sufficient skill to fall into multiple categories, they will ultimately belong to one of the following ranks:
Paladin's are the primary fighting rank that a Knight can choose to pursue. Here they are trained in various weapons combat depending upon their preference, as well as starfighter combat, and the proper enforcement of the laws of Coalition Member worlds.
Crusader's are a mix between Paladin's and Mystic's. They prefer to come up with ingenious solutions to situations that a Paladin might be too brutish for or that a Defender might handle with too much delicacy. They teach themselves to use unconventional tools and skills not particularly related to the Force. Artisans, investigators, recruiters, slicers, mechanics. They were a mix bag of interests.
Mystic's sought to explore more the mystical aspect of the Force. They preferred not to draw their weapon unless given no other option. Their primary focus was upon diplomacy, research, healing, and applications of the Force.
Squires are the most basic rank within the Order. Most new recruits within the Order begin their training as Squires, where they typically train under the guidance of a Knight or Master. Unlike many Orders, training within the Knights of Karabor is a one-on-one experience, although Knights are not disallowed from taking up to Two or Three Squires.
The Temple Guards of Karabor are specially constructed droid bodies that are operated by Shards. Their sole duty is to defend the grounds of the Temple of Karabor. Only Shards may join this branch of the Order of the Temple of Karabor.
