The Children of the Light are a paramilitary organization dedicated to finding Darkfriends and rooting out evil and corruption wherever it may be found. Their zeal in this endeavour makes them dangerous opponents. They typically refer to themselves as The Children. They are commonly referred to by others though, as Whitecloaks due to their snowy white cloaks, which they wear in all seasons and keep immaculately clean. This is not a name favoured by the Children themselves. The current Lord Captain Commander of the Children is Galad Damodred. The Children of the Light were founded in 1021 FY during the War of the Hundred Years by Lothair Mantelar. They were originally preachers working to expose Darkfriends, using Mantelar's book The Way of the Light as their guide. At first they only defended themselves against the Shadow, but by 1111 FY they had become a fully militarized force. The Children's power and prestige was initially limited, but over the succeeding one thousand years, as the influence of the Aes Sedai began to ebb due to their declining numbers and failure to prevent the War of the Hundred Years and many subsequent conflicts, they became more popular and powerful. In the 930s NE they reached an accord with the king of Amadicia, who agreed to let them establish a permanant base of operations, the Fortress of the Light, in the capital city of Amador. However, the power of the Children within Amadicia rapidly outstripped that of the king, and within a few years the royal Serenda Palace had been removed to outside the capital and the Amadician army reduced to an auxillary force under the Children. The Children entered a period of rapid growth under young, successful military commanders such as Pedron Niall, and in 957 NE they launched an ambitious attempt to bring the much larger and more divided neighbouring kingdom of Altara under their rule in what became known as the Whitecloak War. The kingdoms of Illian and Murandy intervened in the conflict and the Children were forced to abandon the attempt, despite significant military gains and successes. (more...)
