Of all the azatas, ghaeles—also known as crusader azatas—are considered to be the most knight-like. They spend their time hunting down fearsome foes like foul undead, evil fiends, and even mighty dragons. Ghaeles appear like idealised knights of either human or elven origin, and are quick with a smile but are just as quick to strike down any they perceive as wicked.
They are often companions of more powerful prydanu azatas, who view ghaeles as great companions in their righteous crusades against tyranny. Many share the beliefs of Cayden Cailean, and might fight alongside mortals in order to aid and teach them how to battle fiends.
