Escon is the Highguard [[egregores|Egregore]]. Escon has three primary interests; to embody the Imperial Faith and commitment to Virtue, to promote the martial spirit of the Highborn, and to expand the knowledge of the Nation. The spirit encourages competition, but as a means to the end of promoting and encouraging Highborn in the pursuit of excellence, rather than as an end in itself. Most of all, Escon encourages the Highborn to embrace their history and pursue Virtue with every part of their being.
