Prima Oculata originally sprung from a religious order called the Oculus, who worshipped a creature called Selthia. Selthia encouraged the Oculus to commit ritual murders. At this time, the Order was discarded as obscure cultists due to the lack of leader in their group. This was all to change with the founding of The Holy Empire of Averistra and a resulting purge of the cult by the Dragornians. The great purge as this incident became know lasted for several years, The few remaining oculus members falling into hiding. The cult remained like this until the arrival of the DreamSeeker
The DreamSeeker was a supposed adventurer and onetime partner of the renowned Dragornians. It was widely believed that the DreamSeeker was the source of the doctrine dictating how the Oculus (and eventually the Prima Oculata) worked as a group.
"Have you not heard of the Prima Oculata? Join us and you'll find the Prima Oculata all that and so much more. We are more than anything a union of like minded individuals. We are truly one flesh and one soul in Selthia our dark god" ― Dartcien LarnaeSince the purge, the Prima Oculata has been slowly gaining followers in dangerous amounts. Given enough time their influence will extend across all of Nyrondie. And with the Dragornians vanishing this will happen all too soon.
The Five Doctrines Edit
"As a member of the Prima Oculata, you must abide by the Doctrines. They are the laws that guide and protect us." ― Dartcien LarnaeThe Doctrines are the rules and morals the Prima Oculata followed since the arrival of the DreamSeeker. If a member broke or neglected to follow one of the Doctrines, they were threatened with torture til death from the DreamSeeker or worse.
There are five doctrines in all, and they are as follows:
Doctrine 1: Never dishonor the DreamSeeker. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Selthia.
Doctrine 2: Never betray the Prima Oculata or its secrets. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Selthia.
Doctrine 3: Never disobey or refuse to carry out an order from a Prima Oculata superior. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Selthia.
Doctrine 4: Never steal the possessions of a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Selthia.
Doctrine 5: Never kill a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Selthia.
