The Church of the Dragon of Light, also known as the Church of Elrath, held enormous power in what was the Holy Falcon Empire, and continued to do so in what became the Holy Griffin Empire. Flammschrein is believed to be the holy city of the church order.
However, when Nicolai Griffin was killed and Isabel named his succesor, the church, led by Archbishop Randall, did not agree, and tried to have their own monarch — Nicolai's cousin Andrei — named instead. This led to tension between the church and the queen, and the power of the church slowly dissolved. When Markal appeared, this development was sped up greatly, and by the time Nicolai was revived, the Church of Elrath no longer had any place in the Griffin Empire, which was no longer so holy.
