What religion is your character? Why?

Neela follows some odd religion based on worshiping the sea/sun/moon because it was dominant where she was raised.

Keldava is atheist because no one has ever really talked about religion with her when she was young and impressionable and later in life she's too stubborn to adopt the concept.

Loki is still a pup. Not quite sure what he believes/will believe. Most likely the same superstitions about animal gods as Terra does.

Niernan is a Norse Pagan - Thor, Loki, Odin, Idun and all that, thrown in with some minor gods as well, kinda like the Green Man and that.

Baird has no religion really, if he were to have a religion it would probably be the aborigine one, which I don't know enough about to write about. I'd have to research it...

Each of my characters have a more defined section on the Wiki regarding their beliefs, though some of it needs updated. Here's the super quick rundown for any "religions" my characters have.
  • Vesper -- atheist, but does have weird beliefs in reincarnation (completely unrelated to karma/moksha/nirvana/etc.); not raised with any beliefs
  • Skoll -- monotheistic belief in God, sees more as a concept to explain things and to pray to than actively worship; religion influenced by mother's beliefs
  • Shiloh -- Norse pagan like all dem other Stormbringers C: sooo there's Solbjorg influence and pack spirituality and whatnot
  • Lowry -- agnostic? undefined beliefs, accepting of religious stories; not sure where they come from
  • Loki -- uhhhh undecided? but leaning toward Norse paganism only due to Siv's beliefs; may change, may not
  • Wayne -- monotheistic belief in God buuuut really undefined; maybe upbringing? idk
  • Levent -- monotheistic belief in God, believes in demons and prophets and other weird crap aaand is just a weirdo in general O_O buuut his father was Muslim and his mother Christian so he took the "God" concept from them and REALLY WARPED IT

Ayita was tech. Catholic I guess, raised in their prayer at least. When she moved to CdM she kinda let it go for a few years till she realized it had helped her she then turned back to her "faith"

Aeron believes in devils and Angels and truly thinks she sold her soul to the devil.

Imhotep of course is very ancient eqypt

  • Colibri here converted to the Norse pagan religion this year because she wants to be a Stormbringer. Religion played a fair hand in her story, since she used to follow a watered-down version of Christianity, believing in angels and saving her soul and all that, but grew very disillusioned and confused by it all.

  • Hati... well, he doesn't really follow anything, I guess he's agnostic? He does believe he can communicate with his dead mother through her horse, so there's that. x) He does a lot of book learning, and tends to see all religions as made up stories, however interesting their culture may be. He's respectful though.

  • Florina is still young, but she believes the Norse stuff really strongly since she's being raised with it. She actually thinks she is blessed by the gods, so she might be a little fanatical when she grows up.

  • And Jacquez was interesting in that he thought he was a sacred king, so he was somewhat of a god himself. He believed he was created divinely and was superior to all other Luperci, who basically existed to entertain him. (None of his kids believed that, though, although a lot of them are a bit nutty too.)

Sky is a clusterbuck of a million different faiths, all wrapped into one weird hybrid religion... if you could call it that. She believes that any god's existence is based on how many believe in them and how strongly. The more worhships one god receives, the stronger and more real that god becomes. Personally, she places her trust into three particular gods; Mother Luna of the Lunarian Pagan belief system, which is what she was raised with; The Norse Gods (very particularly, Loki) now that she's learned of them through Vinatta; and she'll accept some parts of the Rhiannon faith, if only for the betterment of her soul and karma. Part of her wacky beliefs includes keeping skulls as tribute to the deceased, painting in various colors on said skulls for communication with the spirits and a strong sense of good and evil- the evil being demons, who haunt victims like Liam and herself.

Aaaaaand Krys doesn't believe in anything yet. She's too young for that. I imagine it'll be whatever her parents teach her, or the pack. Whoever plays more of a role in this area. She's impressionable- but she's also realistic and curious.

Harvey's pretty much agnostic. He doesn't get into religion, and doesn't much like the arguing about it. He doesn't totally reject the idea of something being out there, and if becoming more and more unsure on his standing based on experiences.

Sabine is into Louisiana/New Orleans voodoo. All about that stuff, she is. :I Worships old voodoo queens and snake deities and the like.

Azza- is confused about faith. Before he left the butterflies in his head were his Gods. Now he believes he killed a demon. He's leaning towards some form of Christianity, I think.

Tal and Deuce worship Rhiannon. They praise the good spirits, curse the evil spirits, but worship Rhiannon. So I suppose they have more of a pagan outlook.

Myrika: Weak agnostic and generally indifferent to religion. Figured she wasn't taught much as a kid, and her biggest encounters with religious types have been neutral-good (e.g., Ezekiel, Ithiel, Willam) while she's never really encountered a total fanatic. x3

Draugr: Mother is god and that is that. She was supposed to be a real witchy woman, but, uhm, did not turn out that way. Is cool because she is probably twice as badass this way. @____@;; I don't know why -- she just turned out this way, I guess. Maybe I will figure it out someday. 8D

Eris: She has actual belief and spirituality but it's corrupted as hell and she needs a reboot (and a real god to follow). x: Here is the long version, I don't know if I could even pare that down to a short version? IDK. :| She was also supposed to be a crazy witchy lady, but her thing was always fooling people into thinking she was doing more than she was, etc. Yet, there was also genuine belief in everything and IDK it just confuses me anymore, hence why she needs a kick in the ass/reboot for her spirituality.

Interesting topic is interesting.

Ahaha, time for some THROWBAAACKS

I originally started roleplaying with faith when I played Thavardo--she was this weird hybrid of Catholicism and spiritually based on the cults within the Cthulhu mythos. This was impressed upon Ahren, though he did not actively believe in anything.

Gabriel was brought up with Catholicism when he was first off-board. Later, when he went to Scintilla, I developed a faith based on Pentecostalism; it's one of the more fanatic and interesting branches of western Christianity. I did a lot of research into this--like I got books from the library and watched about 900 documentaries and REALLY did my homework to make sure it was right. It probably didn't help that Gabriel is schizophrenic, and so the voice he hears in his head is actually chemically caused as opposed to the actual voice of God. :3

Ezekiel was a combination of this and Midewiwin, which itself was somewhat bastardized for my use. He was way more into demonology, which is why he imagined they were everywhere. He was also SUPER OPEN to ghosts and 2spooky stuff like that.

Salvia is basically agnostic; she is aware of all sorts of faith but doesn't believe in anything really. She's starting to believe more in Tak, but not Khalifism as a whole. She also kind of is wary of Siv's faith, since she's seen it used so often and how respectful Sirius was of it.

Siv is all Norse up in here, but she's not so much a believer as much as she exploits the faith for her own means. She goes through the motions and does have a newfound respect for the gods, but it's very hard for her to believe in anything other than herself.

Roselle doesn't believe in anything except being super French. :|

Hanna and her brood were all worshipers of Luna/Moon exclusively because when I made Hanna it totally made sense (I was young and very naive and didn't want a Christian wolf). Their little ritual that I very occasionally wrote about, returning the heart of prey to the earth, was from some fiction book I read. Couldn't tell you what one now.

Asgeir never really had beliefs till he came to Sangi'lak and encountered X'y and her Ancestors. His folks were very hippy nature-loving wolves, but I doubt they really had beliefs unless it was something like that all life is sacred.

I used this with Ezekiel! It's from the Earth's Children series, specifically started in The Valley of the Horses.

Obvs. One of the best kinds ;)

Io is just, ugh, pretty idgaf about anything and everything. She was raised with religion but pretty much ignored it.
Odessa believes in something alongside science, but she doesn't know what. That and stuff she picked up from everyone else.
Tony is a strict atheist, sees it all as rubbish.

And Diiiiiieeeeee~ Some dude I hope to pick up soon, is technically Catholic, but more or less loosely and just to back up his ideals. He's not very strict and will come across as a hypocrite a lot, XD Religion is one of those things he literally couldn't care less about.

I kinda wondered if it was! Yes, I finished that entire series fairly early on. Thanks, Mel!

Seb has some sort of belief in the ancient Roman/Greek gods and despite how often he questions his faith, vainly believes it superior to most other religions because, instead of telling people how to live their life, is more of a way to explain the world around them. He automatically dislikes any religion that tells him how to life his life because he is... just that genuinely stubborn. .__.

He loves Apollo in particular. Guess why.

Terra has some very solid logical beliefs in a way. She believes that everything has to do it's best to survive, and if it doesn't, it deserved it. She believes that canines go to the stars when they die. She believes that Coyote had a large hand in creating the world, though she is not what created life. Terra doesn't have a concept of a creator. All animals have some kind of all entity that represents them, such as Bear, Fox, Wolf, and Rabbit. They are a collection of all the experiences of the various animals to help them survive, but are also done only by a single being for each species, and emulated by others to a lesser degree.

Amy Sunders believes that there are spirits. You can make bargains with them for power, but the bargains always work more in favor for the spirit. She completely exploits this to increase her power as a ghost. Beyond that she has no beliefs.

Dalgina Wolfe-Denahlii believes in Honrin, the god of summer and the sun, and Dalgina, the goddess of winter and the moon. Her idea of their mother is more vague, and she does not act on her beliefs beyond occasionally calling out to the sun or moon for help when she's distraught.

Hadley believes demons exist, and that Amy Sunders is one. He believes in angels, and believes that Sebastian is a kind of carnal angel sent to rescue him. He believes that when one dies they are judged by their deeds, and is terrified that he's going to hell.

Adelle Vilhelmsen believes that the spirits of warriors boost and strengthen the generation that comes after them, helping them defeat their enemies. When they die they go to a great battlefield where they can win in glory and feast and celebrate and battle whenever they wish against their enemies who will always lose.

Tharin is similar to Terra. He has a vague idea that there is Wolf, responsible for the creation of wolves and the rest of the world. He believes that Wolf is strict, and does not leave room for error so his creation is only made of the strongest. He doesn't think about death. He really doesn't think far ahead or back at all, really.

Raoth believes in strength. If you're not strong, you die. He doesn't believe in life after death, and does his best to just keep hanging on and survive.

Pride...her belief is weird. She knows there's spirits, and believes that most of them have no interest in the living unless it benefits them in some way. She believes they can be channeled and communicated with, but they only know what's already happened. She believes that the dead come back as crows, and after that they may choose where they go. She doesn't think there is any wrong beyond breaking pack law or tasks that would tarnish her reputation and make her be seen as lesser.

Krystalle believes love is sex. That's about all I've defined it with. I think she's some kind of Christian that's not active, or only has a vague knowledge of a god and just accepts it.

Ayasha doesn't really have much of a religion. She was raised with AniWayan beliefs but really only believes in spirits from there. She'll like have learned some about the Welsh religion from Deuce. So not much of one/open to ideas from others?

Caleb, I need to play more as but I'm guessing he'll believe in the AniWayan religion.
