War of the Burning Sky
Initially an organization devoted to keeping the city of Gate Pass free from the rule of both Ragesia and Shahalesti, the Resistance is composed of a huge variety of people from many countries, since many nations have a vested interest in keeping the current balance of power. Mostly they work to bolster pride among the citizens of Gate Pass, though occasionally a spy is turned over to the authorities by unknown persons, and the Resistance is credited with the capture.
Many farmers and ranchers who live in the mountains surrounding the city claim to have spoken to members of the Resistance, who encouraged them to be prepared to fight to defend their lands.
Since the beginning of the war, Simeon Gohanach, headmaster of the Lyceum, has adopted the cause of the Resistance to represent the struggle against Leska’s titanic bid for power.
