The Order of St. Vertinez is an organisation created by the Vatican to carry out what Coburn describes as "their dirty laundry." The organization's real name is Michael's Sword. They have the authority, in times of need, to take matters into their own hands even without the Pope's knowledge.
They are heavily judgemental, killing anyone who disagrees with them in the name of the Church. It is revealed they can do this due to the fact they have no right to use their eyes or ears, indicating blind faith. So far, only 4 members have been named. Their uniform is usually a white hooded robe with some wearing masks over their mouths. They use knives, guns and swords to fight. Several of their trademark blades are found embedded in servants and horses.
