The Order of Bakhir is a religious order of the Catholic Orthodox Church. It has only male members; they are called Khiri. Khiri priests and brothers — also sometimes known colloquially as "Soldiers of Eladon" — are engaged in evangelization and ministry reflecting the Method of the Principle of the Order. They are known in the fields of education (schools, colleges, universities, seminaries, theological faculties), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits in addition to missionary work, giving retreats, hospital and parish ministry, promoting social justice and ecumenical dialogue.

The Order was founded by St Hephaestus, who after being wounded in a battle, experienced a religious conversion and composed the ''Sacred Practices'' to closely follow Bakhir. In 1219 AS, Hephaestus gathered six young men to vow poverty, chastity, and then obedience to the Laedman.
