Suriel the Merciful is probably the most popular god in the continent. His faith is dominant in the Kingdom of Asturia (where lives the Patriarch of the church) and very popular also among the Lencian City-States. Suriel is a forgiving god of renewal that preaches mercy and balance above all the other virtues of the lightbringers. His appeal is great among the commoners, especially in Terias, while in Doltanbran the large amount of Kor worshippers has countered his influence. The armed branch of the church is composed by the Order of the Griffon, an elite of paladins that incarnate the perfect knightly ideal. They are not as fanatic as the followers of Anvarol and despite the fact they often cooperate they have very different views about how to enforce law and order. The Griffon Knights are usually dispatched on the field when the Patriarch requires to use steel but more often act alone during important missions. In Dol-Terias there are no member of the Griffon Order but there is a large shrine in Terias that has been expanded since the High Lord Lernan Alturien took control of the city.
