The Heizberg Mercenary Band, also called the Hawks of Heizberg, is a mercenary group from the northern regions. Notorious for their thorough pillaging and swift notice of potential targets, the Hawks fly under a crimson standard with a hawk device. Their raids have recently extended as far south as Ruvenheigen due to the cancellation of a Church-sponsored military expedition. The band's menacing of the main roads would force Holo and Lawrence to detour through the pilgrimage road of Saint Metrogius and encounter the shepherdess Nora.
