Bedel's fascination of necromancy is what pushed them in to holy magics. While they know those silly purification, holy fire, and detect evil spells Bedel's true skill is with the big bad Holy Magics. That is fire and brimstone, floods, concentrated sunlight. The kind of heavy hitting stuff that purges evil from the very soul. I imagine Bedel works for the biggest baddest Paladin/Templar organization in #TheNightWatchers universe. So these are their War Robes, worn to invoke fear in weak and darkened souls.
