The Demon Hunters are a loosely aligned coalition of various groups who share a goal of driving out Demons from the Kingdom and the entire plane and eliminating knowledge of Demonology from the world. They have strong connections with the Temple of Order, Tower of General Magic and Temple of Balance, but a strained relationship with the Temple of Freedom.
Guild views are split on the summoning of other creatures. Some view elementals and avatars as just as great a potential menace as Demons, just extraplanar predators in another form, but the ability to summon such beings is too entrenched in the Ceremonial and Ritual teachings of the Paths, Schools and their relevant Guilds for such views to make any political headway.
Barony Van Heusen: Demon Hunter Naismith
A starting character can join the guild immediately.
A non-starting character must prove their worth before joining the Demon Hunters. The usual test is for the character to defeat a Demon of higher Rank, or by destroying many Demon with total Ranks exceeding twice the character’s Rank. Only after proving their devotion are they inducted as full members of the Demon Hunters. The Character Ref will decide if/when they are ready.

Dismiss Demon 1 as Dismiss Demon 2.
Dismiss Demon 2 as Dismiss Demon 4.
Dismiss Demon 3 as Dismiss Demon 5 etc.
Anything that looks like this is a restricted casting that needs requesting from the Character Ref. In addition, your character must be of the minimum rank indicated before they can learn the casting.
