The Seven are the only true gods and those worshiped by majority of Ivoire’s population. Collectively the religion surrounding them is referred to as The Authority. The Seven are personified concepts corresponding to the Seven Heavenly Virtues. According to legend, they once took on mortal form to guide the founding of Ivoire, though these mortal vessels were mere glimpses into the totality of their beings, and eventually ascended back into the heavens.
- It is believed that harmony with the Seven generates the power of creation. This power, Arcana, can then be shaped by the will of the faithful. Those who are virtuous can create great wonders, but those who are sinful will warp and pervert the world.
- Distancing one’s self from The Seven through Sin creates a disharmony between the world and The Seven, creating the opportunity for greater evil to penetrate into the world.
- Souls who have successfully embodied the seven virtues will be allowed entry into heaven. Those who fail will either be forced to endure a hell-like purgatory to wash away their sins or, should their sins prove too extensive, be annihilated forever.
