The Illuminated are the guards of the City of Brass, consisting of approximately fifty thousand efreet. The standard uniform of an Illuminated includes long gray robes and a pendant worn around the neck that constantly churns with flame. Most Illuminated are armed with a scimitar. They are loyal to the Grand Sultan and take any threat towards him very seriously.
Encounters with Vox Machina Edit
The next time they had a direct encounter was in "Brawl in the Arches" (6x07) where, during the battle with Ghurrix, a single member of the Illuminated arrived at the fight scene, saw what was happening, and joined the battle himself, fighting against Vox Machina. After killing Ghurrix, Scanlan quickly used Modify Memory on the efreeti, convincing him that Ghurrix had been plotting to murder the Sultan, and that the efreeti had fought alongside Vox Machina. The efreeti believed him, and as more members of the Illuminated appeared on the scene the one with his memory modified told the tale to the others. His comrades didn't quite believe the story, but nevertheless felt Vox Machina was not a threat and left without any further conflict.
