Rezmir, of Light and Law
It is said the Lion roars at midnight in the darkness to warn the Lantern Priests against danger. Those who pray to Rezmir may see a giant winged Lion in their hour of greatest need. If it does not roar, then all is lost, for defeat has been decreed by the Light of Law. If it does roar, it is a sign of Rezmir's favor.

Justice For AllNo one is above the law, not even lords and kings. All crimes will receive justice, therefore it is wrong to commit another crime to see justice done. Trust in Rezmir’s true law. There cannot be peace without justice, nor justice without law.
Light Pierces the VeilAlways search for the presence of light when surrounded by darkness. You are a beacon and must shine your light on injustice, wherever it may lurk.
The Right To Be JudgedThose who would deny the right for anyone to face judgment are enemies to light and law. All civilizations should create a formal justice system with court issued edicts and arguments. All will face the final judgment and be granted an afterlife worthy of their merit.
