The Tunba Azsiskari are a group of elite monastic soldiers, selected from the Imperial Army of Thassal, assigned to guard the Nascent Keep. Tunba Azsiskari are sworn to sacrifice their lives for the Keep, to never retreat, and to annihilate any foe who seeks to harm the phylacteries.
The Tunba Azsiskari are highly trained as both traditional soldiers, learning how to fight in formation with spear and shield, and as reverent guardians, trained in lore and history as well as the art of subterfuge, observation, and stealth. The minimum tour of duty for a Tunba Azsiskari is ten years, after which time they are granted a plot of arable land, though many chose to reenlist until they reach the position of Mjee Zhujaa, a holy position equivalent to priesthood.
