The Purist Faction, also known as the Purebloods, are a Britannian political and military faction that opposes the system of honorary citizenship, claiming that neither Britannian society nor its military should be sullied by foreigners. Knightmares that are used by the Purebloods have red markings on them, and high-ranking members often wear a red winged pin on the lapel of their jackets.
The only known regiments of the Purists are the G.G.D.C.F. 5th Regiment, the "K" Powered Task Company, the Knightmare "B" Platoon, and Squad #733. The Sutherlands used by the Purist Faction are distinguised by their custom colors of the head and shoulders which have a maroon color. It also seems that their Sutherlands are among the few that use jousting lances for combat or ceremonial purposes and Stun Tonfas for close-quarters combat or self-defense, as seen when the Purists led by Kewell Soresi attempted to kill Jeremiah Gottwald at a stadium in the Shinjuku Ghetto. They are also seen during the Battle of Narita as reinforcements for Cornelia. However, because of the Purist Faction's tarnished name and reputation, they are placed as the rear guard. After Jeremiah heard of Zero being present, he charges in forcing the rest of the Purist Faction to follow. Most of the Purist Faction was defeated by Kallen and her Guren.
