This of course had priests who were studying them came up with the idea that they should be revered for their deed and dedication to their god. This of course would be the foundations of the order itself. Though many people in the church saw this was heresy and wished for these priests to be killed for their ways. If it were not for Hector that would have happened, but he saw the potential in this order as Saints were dedicated to The Spirit and Flame and their ways where that of their god and no one else.
