Witchfinders [or ‘paladins’ as they are known within their ranks and among layfolk] are a specialized parliamentary class serving one of the more powerful sects of New Spire, originally formed to snuff out or capture other worldly arts and phenomena deemed “dangerous" to the fabric of society and reality in of itself. Typically this manifests into harassing edgy teens, old hermits and social outcasts, so on. On occasion, subduing a high control group might become a focus of theirs, but their primary target is any sort of syout and their creations, regardless of their actual threat to those around them.
In contemporary times, this set of garb is used mostly in ceremonial contexts and only see field action when a guardian is faced with a target more capable than the typical strays and rabblerowsers they usually bother.
