Background Info. History:
In the continent of Naito, a religion named Jashinism was spreading through out the land and its members wreaked havoc wherever they went. This religion expected its followers to practice nothing less than utter destruction and death. The land soon grew devastated and desperate with its citizens beginning to lose hope. To counter this growing threat, the Catholic Church formed an organization named "Paladin" whose pious members sought out and slayed the fanatic worshippers of Jashin. Years went by and as Paladin was slowly beginning to die out due to losing too many soldiers on the battlefield, a virtuous warrior named Rexoniel joined who began to ascend the ranks and revilitized the organization. Once he advanced to become the new leader, Paladin was finally winning its war against the tainted sons of Jashin.
"And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."
All was going well until Draco Torah, one of Rexoniel's most respected marshals, began to critize him about being too soft on the newer members and tried convincing him only the strongest warriors should be allowed to serve in Paladin. However Rexoniel believed in helping people improve their abilities whereas Draco demanded strength upfront. Rexoniel went away for three months to accomplish a mission in another country and came to find that the number of admirers of Draco had grown, including the rest of his officers. Zakiasea, another marshal that he had trusted and adored, commented on how great of a hero Draco was and questioned why he wasn't in charge instead. Feeling disgusted and forgotten, Rexoniel resigned from his title of leader and announced to the church he would be working solo for awhile.
Two weeks was all it took before the church begged for his return as Draco was becoming too arrogant and intolerable. He had grown short tempered and ruthless even towards the clergy. It was becoming obvious his actions were not guided by the love of Christ and sake of mankind, but for his own gain. Once Rexoniel was persuaded into taking up his position again as the king of Paladin, Draco was excommunicated. Enraged, Draco left the organization and convinced the other officers and one-third of the remaining knights to come with him. He then formed a rival faction named "Holy Guard". Though they were competition to one another, the Catholic church allowed this rivalry to exist because it appeared to promise the eradication of their enemies.
One day as the new guild was about to assassinate one of the most influential high priests of Jashin, he pleaded to his assiliantants that he would offer them forbidden knowledge and the secret of immortality in exchange for his life. With Draco's unsatiatable thirst for power, he grew curious what it would be like to allow himself to be seduced by darkness. Still angry and bitter towards the catholic church, he gave into the temptation readily as he plotted revenge. He and his soldiers embraced the teachings of Jashin, becoming a twisted parody of Paladin, and they became known as "Unholy Guard". In a bloody fued, the two factions waged a war with each other time and time again, but as the smaller faction had fewer members it was being driven into extinction after a little over a year until only the five of their strongest was all that remained. In desperation they fled to a new continent hoping to reform their guild elsewhere and convert more recruits into Jashinism while learning new abilities along the way.
The Pope was satisfied by this outcome and decided to let them be someone else's problem, but for Rexoniel it was not enough. He entrusted his Vice Captain, Caeletha, to run the faction in his absence as he was determined to stalk his fallen angels and slay them with his own hands for turning their backs on him and the grace of God. He went so far as to travel by sea and crossed the great rift into the Ninji continent. He arrived in the land of fire and for a month all he had to go by were the stories of villagers whose friends,family members, and livestock had been drained of blood or abducted to be made into sacrifices. The tales of widescale murders soon caught the attention of the Konoha government and an order from the Hokage was given out to the Anbu to apprehend these foreign attackers and bring them back dead or alive.
