The Society of St George was England's premier order of knighthood.
Formed in the 14th century to fight the Mal'akh, it was the public face of the Grand Families and used for recruitment. By the 19th century, the distinction between the Order, the Families and the Star Chamber was virtually gone.
The Chamber mistakenly came to believe that the Eleven-Day Empire was the home of the Mal'akh. The Clockwork Ouroboros incident was their failed attempt to attack it. Instead of destroying them, Faction Paradox recruited their better members. The Order's power and influence faded in the following years, becoming a mere shadow of itself by the 20th century.
