Not many folk will take your search for the Amyr seriously, you realize.
The Amyr is a mysterious group known by most as church knights during the height of the Aturan Empire.
The Holy Order of the Amyr is believed to be founded by the Tehlin Church in the early days of the Aturan Empire. Their credo was “Ivare Enim Euge”, which roughly translates as “For the Greater Good”. The members were equal part knight-errant and vigilante. They had judiciary powers in both the religious and secular courts. All of them, to varying degrees, were exempt from the iron law.
The legendary hero Sir Savien Traliard was one of the Amyr. Another Amyr mentioned is Atreyon (and the Eight Oaths of Atreyon). Also, Kvothesuspects that the infamous Duke of Gibea, who performed dubious medical experiments on many people in Atur to enhance his medical knowledge, was either an Amyr or worked for the Amyr.
The Amyr’s symbol was a flaming tower which they tattooed on the hands of their high-ranking members, the Ciridae. The Ciridae were trusted so implicitly that nothing they did would ever be questioned, as it was presumed that the Ciridae in question was taking any action he may have taken “for the greater good.” Some severe actions taken by the Amyr in the name of this “greater good” are believed to be largely responsible for their eventual denouncement by the church and disbanding.
The group has been disbanded roughly 300 years before Kvothe’s story begins. The disbandment was one of the factors that eventually led to the collapse of the Aturan Empire.
