The Rise of the Morning Sun
Immaculate Order, the
The state religion of the Realm. The Immaculate Order preaches that an individual’s soul is reincarnated again and again through successes lives, until it reaches perfection and joins the Elemental Dragons. Humans are more advanced than animals, and the Dragon-Blooded are more advanced than humans. The Immaculates frown on any sort of popular worship or veneration of spirits because they believe spirits to be celestial functionaries rather than divinities — instead, the Immaculate Order sees that the local spirits are given the proper offerings at the predetermined times. Immaculate monks are known for their deadly mastery of the martial arts, and Dragon-Blooded monks are particularly feared for their mastery of elemental style martial arts.
