While once considered the heroes of legend, they've done their jobs ''too'' well, causing people to forget about their necessity, and the normal sources of new members to all dry up. This causes the Order to lower their recruitment standards and accept all sorts of quirky characters.

Not to be confused with the film, ''Film/BrokenArrow1996''.
