God of Order, Law, Protection, and Tyranny
Nothing can strive without Law and Order, as Chaos is pure destruction. Mialdir teaches to follow the law to the letter, no matter what you believe is good or evil. The law stands above all, above your morals, and above your beliefs. Followers of Mialdir believe that the only way to avoid the eventual destruction of all life, is for everyone to obey a common law and bring order to this world.
Tenets of Faith
Order is Life. Without law, there is no order and without order there is no life.
The Law is paramount. Protect the order and laws of this world. Without them, everything will fall apart.
Enforce Order at all cost. People don't know what's best for them. Force them to obey the law if you have to.
DescriptionMialdir is often depicted as a stoic blind male human, in full plate armor, carrying a shield and no weapons. His blindness symbolizes the unbiased nature of the law - in front of the law, and in front of Miladir, everybody is equal. His armor and shield symbolize the protection he provides to his folowers, while the absence of weapons shows that if you follow the order of the world, violence is not nessesary.
MoralsThe law stands above all, and obedience to the law is paramount. According to Miladir, it's the highest moral duty to adhere strictly to the laws set out by him and by society. Individuals are expected to prioritize the letter of the law over personal beliefs or moral considerations. Mialdir also puts a high value on the preservation of order. Individuals are required to sacrifice personal desires or comfort for the stability and harmony of society. The whole is always more important than the individual. Those in positions of authority are morally obligated to enforce the law justly and without favoritism. They are also expected to protect the weak, not out of compassion, but because a stable society depends on the well-being of all its members. Protection is seen as a means to maintain order, not necessarily as an act of kindness. Similarly dissent and rebellion are viewed as threats to the established order. It is morally justifiable to suppress them for the sake of maintaining stability.
HistoryAs one of countless other gods, Mialdir was born from the mortal's belief in the Dawnera. Eventually it became clear that the mortal's faith can't sustain all the new gods, and they started to fight for followers and prevalence. Mialdir himself never joined these skirmishes, believing that he is part of the greater order of the universe, and either it has a place for him, or it doesn't. Ultimately the fight between the gods escalated, and the entire world was thrown into chaos. The War for Dawn ravished over the world, destroying countless great civilisations and peoples. As the war went on, Mialdir became one of the central figures, trying to protect people from being caught between the front lines. In the end, he was responsible to convince the sisters of the sky Tria and Yana to intervene in the war. During the , Mialdir and his followers were often called upon to draft and ratify treaties and contracts. These contracts - no matter if they have been formed between individuals or empires - are still upheld today, and protected by the god himself. The last known country to break one of these treaties was the Kingdom of Murokai, towards the end of the . They signed the Meisian' Declaration, joining the empire together with the other 6 kingdoms of the southern continent. Just a couple of decades later, they broke the declaration in order to take control of the empire. It's unclear what exactly happened next, but within a couple of hours after turning against the Meisian Empire, the entire kingdom of Murokai was destroyed. The once lush and fertile hills turned into dust and barren lands - its capital reduced to the foundations, and every single settlement turned to ashes. The wrath of Mialdir hit the great kingdom and left only the Steppe of Murokai behind.
The Meisian Empire is a fragile collection of different cultures and people, held together by a single thing - fear. The destruction of Murokai showed what happens should the kingdoms turn their backs on the empire they have built together. Fear is a powerful motivator, but it doesn't provide a solid foundation for good relations. I can only hope that eventually the kingdoms can grow together and overcome their differences, but until then, Mialdir's wrath is the best motivator we have.
