The Modao wield their fearsome signature weapon, the great bladed ‘modao’ with expert ease and can cut down any foe in their path. Forming the core of the Hao Jing Imperial Guard, they guard the capital city of Longting with unrelenting dedication.

The Modao Battalion is among the most distinguished military organisations in Longting. When the second Qian Emperor founded their former army, their expeditions sometimes lasted for decades, but they remained undefeated.
