The Order of the Rising Tiger or the Rising Tigers was a Thalathanist military order that perceives the resistance war against the Kaliyatra empire as just, righteous and necessary. They follow Tahamavism and the worship of Lord Tahamatan and his associated personifications as the Supreme Being. Tahamavas aim to break free of the cycle of death and rebirth through devotional service of Tahamatan. Their weapon of choice is the tiger claw or unarmed, and they reject all ranged weapons, poisons, and other weapons that could allow their opponent to escape. However, they had no problem attacking from ambush or using deception to take opponents off guard.

The order notably served the Pahanari against the Kaliyatra in the Palalangan Wars. Sarachai was a harimau and notable member of the order. When the Pahanari lost the war, they withdrew from the island and followed back to the Pahanari Lands.

The Order of the Rising Tiger is now a defunct organization.
