The title of Prime Shield is known throughout Tikor, but few have been able to see the elite warriors in action. Celestial Shields still retell the epic story of Kalali of the East, the first Prime Shield. Kalali not only defended his charge from the 7 high skilled assassins but completely throttled them.
Kalali then delivered the bound and unconscious killers to the authorities himself. After hearing the great deed, and the humbleness of which he had served, the King herself came to see Kalali. King Nzinga Ludan. It was through that meeting that the King had made up her mind, promoting Kalali to a new level that hadn’t existed before.
Prime Shield. The greatest of Celestial Shields. The top of the top. The deeds Kalali would rack up only furthered the title, with it becoming an official high ranking title a number of years after his death.
