Keeper Support and Vehicles
The Penitent Order of the Knights of Union and Keepers of The Way, better known as simply Keepers or The Choir, are both the police force of the Union and preachers for Apateon's corrupted Way of the Kristo; a violent and terrible religion which has little or nothing to do with the Judaman carpenter and preacher who died in Alexander's arms in Jerusalem.
They wear a badge displaying his abused body transfixed upon an Ancient Hebrew knife to demonstrate both their faith to him and dedication to cleansing the Earth entire of his murderers, the entire Judaman race.
Keepers are brutal and cruel officers of the law and crueller preachers, they will beat man, woman, or child to insenibility with their shock batons just for an ill considered look. The Choir famously do not kill if they can avoid it; they are great believers in the terrible weight of sin and are keen to help anyone burdoned by that weight to become free of it's toll.
Thankfully there is no shortage of sins to choose from; from heresy and sedition at the top, to things such as looking a little Judaman, insufficient modesty of behaviour (especially for women), or giving an object a name that does not simply define its function, especially if that name comes from some heathen superstition.
They have prisons nobody ever leaves in the most inhospitable corners of the Union; kept far away from centres of population for a number of reasons. Escape is unlikely and, if it happens, recapture and correction is more likely. Hope is a stubborn enemy and, such things as visitation and pleasant surroundings do tend to encourage its insideous presence. hopelessness does steel a sinful soul much better.
Also, the screams, which rarely stop, used to unsettle good and faithful people who lived nearby. Now only the Keepers and the wind get to hear them.
The Keepers will forgive the poor burdoned creatre of their sins before their last breath is spent, though, are they not merciful?
