About The Order of Aldmeri
Main Ranks
A bit like the Vigilants, only they deal solely with the undead and necromancers. The Order of Aldmeri is founded on the belief that all living souls should be allowed to move on once the body has died, and that trapping a living soul in a soul gem or defiling a corpse of any kind with necromancy is an abomination. The Order travels the land hunting necromancers and their vile creations, and are willing to completely rase entire buildings if they believe it has been tainted by necromancy. The Order has also attempted to help lost souls find peace, though they are not usually successful.

The Order was originally founded by a Breton by the name of Cortice Maulrette in the 2nd Era 309. A decade or so earlier, Cortice's parents, both avid learners of magic, attended a secret meeting on necromancy in Cyrodiil with other people who shared their interests in the dark art. Wanting their daughter to follow in their foot steps, and believing that witnessing necromancy would leave her with fond memories and a desire to study it, the two decided to take Cortice with them.

Unfortunately, something went wrong. Nobody knows exactly what, but when a small group of Imperial soldiers were sent to investigate why undead creatures were coming out of the hills, they eventually found the place of the meeting, packed with corpses both "living" and dead. After clearing the place out, a young Cortice was the only survivour found by one of the soldiers hidden, exhausted and malnourished.

Several years later, after having spent some time in the Imperial Legion, Cortice, who was part of a noble family, returned to High Rock to sell off her parent's property and belongings before returning to Cyrodiil to set up the first Chapter of the Order. Over the years the Order slowly began to expand, with a few Chapters in Cyrodiil, High Rock and Skyrim.
During the strife caused by the war between the Empire and the Aldmeri Dominion, the Order found it's movement restricted, and was infiltrated by members of the Aldmeri Dominion, which nearly destroyed the Order from within. After the signing of the White-Gold Concordat, members of the Aldmeri Dominion were withdrawn from the Order's Chapters, though some remained after expressing genuine interest in the Order's goals. This has surrounded the Order with a lot of suspicion, especially since the current head of the Skyrim Chapters is an altmer known to have connections with the Aldmeri Dominion.
Ranks (from lowest to highest):

Cleanser - Starting rank

Purist - Rank for those who have shown great deal in the fight against necromancy

Purger - Rank for those who have shown themselves capable leaders in the fight against necromancy

Redemptorist - Someone who has shown outstanding work in the fight against necromancy, and leads a Chapter of the Order.

Judge - The Head of all Chapters in a province. Usually chosen at a gathering of Redemptorists. When a Redemptorist becomes a Judge, they must then choose another Redemptorist for the Chapter they left. They will still remain in that Chapter, though as Judge they will have new duties.

Hand of Death - The Head of the entire Order, located in the main Chapter in Cyrodiil.
