Xander is a Knight Templar

Background to be worked with:

either Xander is thrown back to the Crusades and joins the Templars OR he is a
reborn Knight Templar

the inner circle of the Templars can wield magic bestowed on them by the
Archangel Michael upon facing a test of faith and morals; all lower ranks know
nothing or only rumors about that; the test, that happens during a dream, is
potentially fatal; the dream gets started through drinking a potion that is
extremely bitter (and in fact a poison that will kill the drinker unless it is neutralized by passing the test in the dream)

with the exception of a few chapters/individuals the KT are the good guys, none
of the allegations that the French King and the Inquisition offered were true
when looking at the Order as a whole

the Templars (besides the historical mission of protecting pilgrims and holy
places) were charged with the safeguarding of holy items against demonic threats
as well as keeping several destructive items out of the wrong hands


- Xander has to use the Templars battle cry/motto at least once (short form: Non
nobis, Domine, long form: "Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed Nomini Tuo da
gloriam" is from Psalm 115, verse 1 -- "Not for us, Lord, not for us, but to Thy
Name give glory.")
- NO slash


a more detailed crossover with the following 2 novels by Kathering Kurtz and Deborah T. Harris
- The Temple and the Stone; The Temple and the Crown

- crossover with Highlander (maybe to facciilitate the 1st option?)

for Bonus-points:

use the following: "White Knights appear, silhouetted against the dark..."
