Name Path Order Book and Page Description
Brotherhood of the Demon Wind Mastigos Adamantine Arrow The Adamantine Arrow and Page 157 Descended from a man who is claimed to have spoken with the ghost of a true dragon, the Brotherhood is devoted to mastering the secret that the dragon taught their founder; the power of the onikaze, the demon wind. They are expert at stepping along the boundaries of space and time, and are practically impossible to best in blade-to-blade combat by virtue of their incredible unpredictability.
Blank Badges Acanthus Free Council The Free Council and Page 94 Dedicated idealists and revolutionaries against the whole of the Awakened establishment (including the Free Council), the Blank Badges are direct heirs to the Nameless traditions of the pre-Council era. They’re magical anarchists and rebels, striking the Seers for preference but also any traitor who tries to stay their hand or parlay with the Throne.
Eyes of Ain Soph Obrimos Mysterium The Mysterium and Page 166 Known as 'Seekers' members of this Legacy largely believe the knowledge of magic is inherent in the structure of magic. To this end they examine and experiment with unusual types of magic and other occult phenomena. They have a reputation amongst some of the Awakened as meddlers at best or holding an over-developed death wish at worst. This is due to the risks involved in some of their experiments.
Reality Stalkers Mastigos Mysterium The Mysterium and Page 173 The Reality Stalkers are mages who focus on bending and warping space and perception. A common use for their powers is to acquire lost or heavily protected items of use; however, the Stalkers are also devoted to studying the cracks in reality which their powers exploit, for some believe that within these cracks lie ancient secrets, powerful Artefacts, and even a physical bridge to the Supernal Realms.
Sisterhood of the Blessed Acanthus Silver Ladder The Silver Ladder and Page 164 This Legacy is an up-until-recently exclusive to high-class women group whose networking and attainments are focused on helping members avoid the social prejudice levied against them. They are skilled in subtle Fate and Mind magics to assist their endeavours and keep themselves from accruing too much unwanted attention stemming from their power.
Subtle Ones Mastigos Guardians of the Veil Mage: The Awakening and Page 352 The Subtle Ones attempt to influence society from behind the scenes. They gain the power to influence the minds of people, alter their auras, or travel unnoticed, all while attempting to change society according to a preconceived pattern.
Thread Cutters Moros Any Legacies; The Ancient and Page 100 The Thread Cutters are the self-appointed guardians of destiny. They read the fates of others, and groom or destroy them in accordance with what they find to be their subject's proper role in the tapestry of fate. They serve beings embodying fate, which they call the Three, who weave a person's thread of fate, measure it to the appropriate length, and sever it once it has reached its end.
Uncrowned Kings Moros Free Council Mage: The Awakening and Page 363 The Uncrowned Kings are alchemists, though their studies transcend the vulgar work of other Awakened alchemists. Theirs is alchemy of the soul, designed to refine the purest essence of the soul out of the dross of sorrow and pain.
Votaries of the Ordained Moros Guardians of the Veil Guardians of the Veil and Page 169 The Votaries of the Ordained are mages who devote everything they are to protecting an important item, person or place from supernatural interference, although their stewardship over each item only lasts until that item has fulfilled its worldly significance.
Walker in Mists Acanthus Mysterium Mage: The Awakening and Page 358 The Walkers in Mists are an order of mages who draw their wisdom and power from the natural world around them, rather than the tomes and scrolls so beloved of their fellow Awakened. They’re masters of manipulating the continuum of nature they call the Mists to gaze upon and travel to places far removed from their own selves in the blink of an eye.
Wraith of Epochs Moros Mysterium The Mysterium and Page 180 The Wraiths are mages who reject the modern world and eschew its technologies as distractions from the power and true ways of the Supernal and the Awakened. They have incredible power to look into and draw upon the past but lose their ability to wield the tools of the present to best effect.
The House of Ariadne Acanthus Any Legacies: The Sublime and Page 34 The House of Ariadne is a Legacy devoted to urbanity. They are attracted to everything about city life, good and bad, for it is from the city that they gain the power to see into past and future. They walk the paths of the ley lines and the lesser lines they call Ariadne's threads crisscrossing the city, and use the symbols they see along the way to interpret the future.

Name Path Order Left Handed Book and Page Description
Category:Awakening Gambit Acanthus Adamantine Arrow No The Adamantine Arrow and Page 151 The Awakening Gambit are a Legacy who seek to shunt people into situations where they are forced to Awaken in an attempt to create more mages. Their methods are not always successful, and can be quite dangerous (although the Gambit mages do their best to ensure that no lasting harm can befall their target), but the number of successes they do get indicate that their idea is a sound one
Category:The Daoine Acanthus Any No Legacies: The Sublime and Page 34 The Daoine are Acanthus who attempt to emulate Fae justice. They punish those who have violated their obscure codes and reward those who have acted virtuously. These mages are masters of the hex and curse, using their powers to perform their duties against violators of their own codes or the scruples of whoever hires them.
Category:The Pygmalian Society Acanthus Any No Legacies: The Sublime and Page 64 The Pygmalian Society believes that art – true Art, that is – is a link to the Supernal, given its quality to provoke and inspire people, and it is a link that even Sleepers can use. The Society thus seeks to inspire artistic emotions in the Sleepers it interacts with, in the hopes of Awakening them from Sleep via a great induced moment of creative epiphany.
Category:Singers in Silence Acanthus Mysterium No The Mysterium and Page 169 These mages have an almost instinctive understanding of death and its hold on those around them. Theirs is the power to summon and create ghosts, and to read the strands of fate and death to see those who are marked and fated to die soon. This knowledge cannot be suppressed or easily ignored, and as a result of their connection to death the Singers are warped in mind, body and soul.
Category:Skalds Acanthus Any No Legacies: The Ancient and Page 82 The Skalds are the heirs to a truly ancient practice known across the world; that of the singing storyteller and songwriter.

Category:Storm Keepers Acanthus Any No Tome Of The Watchtowers and Page 38 The Storm Keepers have guarded humanity against the forces of nature unchecked for many centuries.

Category:The Carnival Melancholy Acanthus Silver Ladder Yes The Silver Ladder and Page 182 Awakened charlatans and conmen, the mages of the Carnival Melancholy harvest the souls of the Sleepers they dupe and use them to bolster their own chances of success. Their philosophy stems from the Depression and sees the Awakened as a nation of fugitives, doing what they can to survive and attain the Imperium Mysteriorum on the backs of the Sleepers.
Category:Bearers of the Eternal Voice Mastigos Guardians of the Veil No Guardians of the Veil and Page 163 The propagandists of old Atlantis, the Bearers of the Eternal Voice are masters of subtle persuasion and using the power of the spoken word to change people’s minds, thoughts, and memories.

Category:Bene Ashmedai Mastigos Silver Ladder No The Silver Ladder and Page 186 Goetic mages who hark back to an apprentice of Solomon the Wise, and his pact with a demon king named Asmodai, the Bene Ashmedai seek enlightenment through excess and to serve the Silver Ladder.

Category:Liberatores Mastigos Any No Tome of the Watchtowers and Page 67 The Liberatores, as the name would suggest, are devoted to the abolition of slavery worldwide, though they also serve to resist anything they believe to be economic oppression or the use of mental and emotional abuse to achieve control.
Category:Reality Makers Mastigos Silver Ladder No The Silver Ladder and Page 171 These mages are masters of making phantasmal items and hiding the true nature of mundane ones to suit their needs.

Category:Sphinxes Mastigos Mysterium No Legacies: The Ancient and Page 91 The Sphinxes find Supernal truths and Oracular messages in the patterns they observe in all facets of life, by solving riddles in the mundane facets of existence.

Category:Bokor Moros Any No Tome of the Watchtowers and Page 95 These mages are unusual amongst the Moros in that, unlike most members of their path, they see death not a serene, calm experience, but as a violent and painful process. The see the bodies of the dead as being mere shells, and so have no qualms about using them as servants or soldiers. Interesting to note is that their ethics are tightened when it comes to dabbling in souls; the Bokor philosophy does not allow that to imprison or sever souls, though they can be used to create revenants.
Category:Forge Masters Moros Any No Legacies: The Ancient and Page 72 Awakened artisans and craftsmen beyond parallel, the Forge Masters are the supreme alchemists, item crafters and Imbuers of the Awakened world.
