There is no hierarchy in this clan everyone is accepted as equal in they eyes of cruel but fair gods.
They only live to serve and die to serve. Mostly they are making harsh religious traditions still existing performing wonders of divine.
Blinded ones refuse of their earthly possessions and live in servitude. But the temple itself has a big treasury under ground but those treasures are for those who die and use those after death in meed halls.
It is a very ancient clan that starts it history long before GR and has a lot of legends and mysteries connected to them.For example they are poking one eye out to look with an empty socket straight into your soul or straight to the plane of gods.
