Several orders of templars wear mantles of exotic fur over the top of their armour, usually taken as trophies from slain creatures or worn in remembrance of past glories. Famous adherents include the Knights Griffon, whose leading members wear griffon pelts taken in historic hunts, the Knights Panther, who wear panther skins to mark their founding in the mountains of Araby during the Crusades, and, most famously, the Knights of the White Wolf, who wear the pelts of wolves slain by every knight as a mark of passage from squire to templar. Exotic furs have their practical advantages too, such as keeping the knight warm in the depths of winter, or protecting vulnerable areas from attack.[1a]
