Ksarul worship in House Corvidae
The followers of Ksarul found themselves alone with only the skills taught them by the Doomed Prince to aid them. The war which had been fought between the Ancestors had cost many lives on both sides of the dispute and, as a result, a vengeful population rose against the followers of Ksarul, blaming them for their misfortunes. The devotees of the Doomed Prince then split, some went into hiding and became inward-looking and defensive, ultimately leading to demonological and necromantic practices; but a large part left the Imperial homeland and travelled away from the site of conflict, maintaining themselves by teaching in the communities they passed through. Gradually, as these survivors spread further afield, organised worship of Ksarul was almost abandoned in the Heartlands, abandoned that is apart from two strongholds of faith.
One of the strongest followings of the faith of the Doomed Prince remained and still remains on the old Imperial isle of Sicilija. However these devotees had faced many years of oppression and had turned away from the compassionate teachings given by Lord Ksarul when he was still free. They now followed a secretive and vengeful cult, hoarding power in whatever form it could be obtained. Those interested in learning more about these decadent and evil sorcerors should look to the Mirror of Souls in Syracusa.
The other organised followers of Prince Ksarul are to be found in the ranks of House Corvidae. Here the original teachings of the Blue Prince are preserved and the devotees are taught to show compassion to all and to encourage the spread of knowledge whenever the opportunity arises. Household sorcerors are taught that the use of necromantic or demonological power can never be justified, and that to indulge in such practices will lead inevitably to one’s own doom. It is sadly noted that Lord General Corvus Corvidae had no aptitude for magic and was therefore not given the teaching that could possibly have saved him from the wiles of Roxanne and Golgamoth.
