The Sages are a small group of Dust and weapons users. They are basiclly the rivals of Hunters and compete for jobs with them. They arent very well known so most people find out about them from word to mouth. They also are very competitive about their work and will jump on any chance to send one of their own with a Hunter on a mission. They also arent afraid to fight a merc and find them as rivals too. The Sages aarent afraid to get their hands durty and will do almost any job, but will only kill in self defense. The Sages arent opposed to working with either Mercs or Hunters, but only if they pay is the right amount.
