The Swifttail Caste
Fists and Tails
of Cabilis
It was at the dawning of the
Sebilisian Empire that the
art of fist and tail was
forged. In the beginning the
pugilists of the great
tribes were nothing more
than warriors without
weapons. Soon we would be
forged into weapons.
Grandmaster Tynn was the
father of our disciplines.
He came to the empire from
an unknown tribe. Some say
he was a ronin who wandered
the worlds of Norrath where
he formed the basis of our
discipline. He entered the
city of Sebilis with no
rebirth. He entered to form
a caste which did not exist.




He was quickly challenged
by the warlords. He spoke
his words and they did not
listen. He knew the only way
to make them understand was
to challenge their finest in
The Gauntlet. He called for
four of the finest warlords
and allowed them arms. The
warlords agreed thinking
his challenge an easy task.

Grandmaster Tynn quickly
dispatched the warlords
with nothing more than fist
and tail. He fought in a
way never displayed. His
victory earned him much
respect and Emperor Sathir
soon commanded him to
form the Court of Pain and
raise an army of monks.
Tynn formed the Swifttail
Caste.



Soon the way of fist and
tail had hundreds in its
ranks, climbing the rungs.
Tynn showed them they were
not warriors, but monks.
They would don shackles as
testament to the Age of
Snake when the Iksar were
a race enslaved. Inner
strength and harmony were
taught. The Swifttail were
born.
The Swifttail were
disbanded during the End
Days. It was not till the
rise of the new empire under
Emperor Vekin that the caste
reformed. Grandmaster Glox, a
former disciple of Tynn,
came to New Sebilis to
rebuild the Court of Pain.
In honor of Tynn, all
masters now drape themselves
in a robe like he wore.
