The Archon's Guard of Hessarian are vilified throughout the lands. The Chant depicts their cruel treatment of Andraste as one of the reasons the Maker turned his gaze from his creation. After Hessarian converted to Andraste's teachings, he disbanded his guard and stripped them of their arms. Most of the guards' swords were destroyed, but a handful of the archon's blades are still around. Perhaps one of the blades here drew the prophet's blood as the archon interrogated Andraste before her execution.
