From An Tir Culturewiki
Her Ladyship Molly Modine, is Captain of a Trayned Band ... which is a Company of Foote and Horse trained for Royal Guard Duty within the Kingdom of An Tir.
Historical basis ... in the 1500s and 1600s in England there were groups that were formed by the leadership and funds of private persons, these groups were loyal to King and country and swore oaths to protect the Royalty should they pass through their lands. These groups were trained in rapier and musket, horse, drills and formations. Today we call these groups Militia units. Back then they were called Trayned Bands.
Molly's modern name is Jennifer Brock.
