Confessors were an order of women first created during the Great War as a means of ascertaining the truth beyond doubt. Created by Wizard Merrit, the first Confessor was Magda Searus. The magic of the Confessors destroyed the person touched by their power and fills the void left with complete and total love for the Confessor; there one and only wish is now to please the Confessor that touched them with her (his) magic.
The Male Confessors, and the wizards of the New World, engaged each other in a horrible war. By its conclusion, all Male Confessors were dead as were most of the wizards who killed them in an effort to restore the balance of power. Following this, a new mandate was issued. Any male offspring of a Confessor would immediately be put to death (the male confessor's unquenchable thirst for power and control began prior to adolescence).
