The Servants of Valalique is the formal name of the Eastern Church of Valalique, patron deity of humanity. The faithful of this sect were persecuted horribly in Athalin prior to the exile and during this time lost much of their heritage and religious traditions. Set off on the far shore of Karalon they have spent over a century rebuilding their faith. The resultant church is very essentialist caring little for the elaborate religious traditions of old but rather
emphasizing personal righteousness through acts of mercy. Unlike the Western Church, which is composed of females exclusively, the Servants of Valalique welcome males into the priesthood readily. In fact at present male priests outnumber females by a small margin within the sect. The Servants of Valalique serve all faithful humans in the eastern world, this flock notably includes the Pathite Monasteries which developed to defend humanity in Athalin during a period of Redorf II’s reign in which humans were forbidden from bearing arms of any kind.
