Haelyn (HAY-lynn) is the lord of justice, chivalry and righteous war. He is the paragon of kings and paladins, and is worshiped throughout Arkos by those seeking order through law. In his role as lord of justice, Haelyn is stern, but tempers his judgments with mercy. He represents the rule of law as the means by which a society is run.

Faithful of Haelyn promote civic duty as a part of their worship and spend an hour of each day in labor for the good of the community. The most important ceremony of the year is Haelyn’s Festival, which occurs on the day of the summer solstice. The night of the summer solstice, called the Night of Fire because of the shower of falling stars that occurs each year, is the culmination of the festival. Haelyn’s gospel, the Book of Laws, appeared in the first shrine on the dawn of the declared end of the Titanswar, where it remains to this day. The church now celebrates that day as the Day of Holy Justice.

Dogma: See justice done, with both compassion and zeal. It is the duty of the strong to protect the weak and uphold the sacred feudal social order. Make war when justice demands it, but never for an unjust reason. Study warfare and serve in the armies that oppose evil and injustice. To rule or judge is not a privilege, it is a most holy responsibility and the heaviest of burdens, for your acts touch the lives of your subjects. Should lordship fall to you, work diligently to see that you rule fairly and justly. Stand by your oaths to your liege, your subjects, and your neighbors; the word of a ruler is the coin by which nation’s earn peace.
