Hierophant

The Hierophant hears the voices of the gods of Light and Dark and chooses to speak for the Light. The voices of the Dark Gods torment him and he rails against them, hunting witches and demons with equal burning-eyed fervor. From his torture-fortress the Cathedral he sends out his crusading paladins and clerics to crush those who would worship the wrong gods. Though he is ultimately a force for good he is neither as gentle nor as forgiving as the Muse of Light.

The Hierophant is an odd exemplar of balance, although not one most people would recognize as such. On the one hand, his Inquisitors employ shocking and brutal methods that seem out of line with the Gods of Light they serve, and he is ruthless in his crusades against the enemies of his Gods. On the other hand, the dangers he rails against – demons, the Dark Gods – are very real threats to the spiritual and physical safety of the innocents he devotes himself to protecting.

Ultimately, the Hierophant is on the side of good, though not all might agree – especially those caught in the crossfire or those who may get caught up by his… shall we say, less discerning servitors.
