Legends of the Dreaming Sea
The Pure Way
When the Realm attempted to spread the Immaculate Faith into Prasad, it went awry, merging with local superstitions to create the Pure Way.
In many ways the Pure Way is much like the Immaculate Faith, but where the Immaculates teach that Dragon-Blooded are enlightened, the Pure Way worships them as living gods. All spirits within Prasad must submit to the Pure Way, acknowledging the Dragon-Blooded and the Immaculate Dragons as divine masters.
In addition, as the Dragon-Blooded are living gods, everything they do must therefore be righteous and cannot be questioned by lower castes. Of course the Dragon-Blooded of Prasad are more righteous and enlightened than outsiders.
With the noted exception of Lama Smiling Jaguar, all members of the order are mortals. Pure Way monks follow similar ascetic traditions to Immaculate monks, but practice Snake and Tiger style martial arts and have extensive training in exorcism rituals.
