The Kassi'-of-the-Faith are monotheistic. They believe in a single deity, tiDika'u, which word originally meant "deity", the Traditional-Kassi' (those who have not gone over to the Prophetess) had scores of 'em, only one word used, tho, sudika'u. However, the Kassi'-of-the-faith also have the Sullika'ni TiDika'uf - Children of the Goddess. This is getting conculturey, but basically, the Children of the Goddess are, for practical purposes, deities. They were the creation of the Goddess, and they in turn created the world. They are the ones who directly govern the world, the Goddess wanders from world to world. The Children are divided into two camps, the Loyal Children and the Rebelling Children, those who have become consumed with evil. However, these two camps are taken as entities, one never considers a single Child of the Goddess. -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
