Military Order of Saint Lazarus has it's roots in a few hospitals run by Knights of St.John, where they treated those unfortunate ones stricken with leprosy. Their patients were knights and commoners alike, and when Christian lands in the Outremer became threatened by their enemies, both patients and caretakers took up arms under the patronage of Saint Lazarus. It was a common practice that diseased knights and nobles from other military orders find refuge within their ranks. Those who choose to fight on foot, or were unable to afford a horse, wielded the fearsome two-handed axes and were well protected by heavy armour.
