The Inquisitoria is a secret organization of Mage Hunters who seem to work at the bidding of the Guild of Arcane Evokers.

After The Black Rupture, a group of seven powerful wizards, The Seven Mages, decided to go against the newfound Guild of Arcane Evokers. They were brutal and merciless, slaying innocents to ingest their powers and even using their bones to create undead minions.
The renegade group put up a fight for several years, until finally being captured by the Guild.
Being that it was their first public Mage hunt, the leader of the Guild at the time, Nackelmip Lightbringer one of the founding fathers, decided to be lenient on the renegades and simply strip them of their magical powers.

After many hours of incredible strain, the Guild believed to have found victory at last. The seven renegades became frail, as if their life force had been siphoned out of them.
But the magic was too powerful, although the mages had lost their sense of reasoning, their incredible magical powers remained.
