The Pristine Order of the Auric Chalice is a group of alchemists that violently objects to the old alchemical tale of turning lead to gold.
|“||The secrets of the Arts aren't for everyone.||”|
Composed solely of the wealthy, those of the Chalice believe the attempt to create gold alchemically is somehow a grave danger for some reason or another, be it a poisoning of the soul into madness or the release or creation of dangerous spirits and monsters. Being that they are largely socially backwards and out of touch with the common man, members of the Order tend to assume that any alchemist not of means would fall prey to the temptation.
As such, the Order uses its vast resources to seek out and hunt down all who would thus debase the Arts, hunting down Prometheans so as to gather the power they need for their war.
