Sentinels are the ‘grunts’ of the Flesh-eater society. Despite their low standing within their race, the Sentinels are responsible for nearly all of the death and destruction associated with the Flesh-eaters. Competition amongst Flesh-eater Sentinels is fierce. When a Sentinel has proved himself in battle, he may be chosen to partake of the ‘Blood of the Mother’, a scared rite wherein a Sentinel is not only promoted, but literally transformed into a member of the ‘Death Guard’, the next order in the Flesh-eater society. Sentinels are armed with huge blades that run the length of their lower arm and extend two feet beyond the reach of their hand.
