"...and suddenly, when we thought all was lost - an armored man seemingly appeared out of no where, and killed the Xiticix which was about to kill Terra. We stood there in awe of this man and thought that he might be a Cyber Knight at first, but when we asked his name - he said in Dragonese accented American, "I am Peacebringer, Lord BrightStar." I knew then, he was one of the fabled Peacebringers of Tykesi - the otherworldly paladins that even the noble Cyber Knights look up to." - Quote from Mishel Connair, Rogue Scholar.
The Peacebringers of Tykesi 100 years ago were virtually unheard of on Earth. About ten years ago however, stories began passing around about charcoal black skinned D-Bees who acted "all holier than thou", but were never identified as a person or group of people - and were commonly mistaken for D-Bee Cyber Knights. Under more careful scrutiny it can be seen however that they are very different.
The Peacebringers of Tykesi is actually an organization of Paladin-like warriors from another world, known as Armistice. On this world, the Akonian race of charcoal black skinned people, began this tradition years ago. This happened when the planet of Armistice was attacked by hundreds of incredibly powerful and monsterous interstellar insects, that devoured hundreds of their people. It was then that their god, Tykesi, gifted 1,000 worshipers with a fighting art. (Something unheard of on their world, as war was unheard of!) These warriors were then dubbed the Peacebringers of Tykesi. They destroyed or imprisoned the monsterous insects after a year of near constant fighting, losing nearly half their number in the process. After the war, the Peacebringers were seen as heroes and mentors to the rest of the people. From there on, arts were passed down to decendants and to worthy students, much in the same way a knight takes on a squire. The relatives and decendants of the original Peacebringers were like nobles, and were referred to as Lord. (If they too were a Peacebringer, then it would go Peacebringer, Lord So and So.) They developed their skills further, and created a specialized "Equilizer Blade", a blunt short sword sized weapon, with a rounded point at the top, that has an adjustable power setting at the base of the hilt. (Functions Similarly to the Neural Mace, only more powerful when on higher settings.) Additionally they developed a suit of armor, that would protect the Peacebringers from harm if the 'Invaders' ever did return, and serve a purpose of identifying a Peacebringer on sight during peaceful times.
Since that first encounter with the 'Invaders' as they called the monsterous insects that attacked Armistice (These same insects, though rare, are known in the Three Galaxies as Challopeaque (Chal-loh-pea-yak).), the people of Armistice have begun to explore the megaverse through powerful magics, and with them of course go the Peacebringers. Once off world, the Peacebringers came to realize that their planet is just one of many with problems presented by monsterous creatures, dominating, enslaving, or plain out devouring as in their case - and so once they had begun their travels, it became quite apparent that their skills were not given to them just to defend Armistice, but defend all peace loving creatures alike. It is not unusual for a Peacebringer of Tykesi to take up students who are not of his or her race, but they must have at least major psychic abilities, and have some magic potential.
Peacebringers encountered on RIFTS Earth, Wormwood, or in the Three Galaxies are seen as being polite, understanding, and very honorable. They see the Cosmo-Knights, Cyber Knights, and especially the Knights of the True Vision as kindred spirits - with the exception that Peacebringers of Tykesi will very rarely outright kill an opponent, supernatural or not. They will do everything within their power to bring that creature or person to justice without doing so.
