Ethoists or Clerics of the Faith Ethical, were priests who primarily maintained the temples and mosques of Zakhara. They called for prayer, delivered sermons, and performed daily tasks required by their god.[1][note 1]


Ethoists did not have any special requirements, though the spouse of a married ethoist needed to belong to the same religion.[1]


Most ethoists were methodical individuals, carefully maintaining their daily routines and the happenings of their house of worship.[1]

Young ethoists were usually encouraged to go out and explore the world before returning for a more rigid lifestyle as a priest. These young ethoists were required to document their travels and activities. They would discuss their documentation with other ethoist priests whenever they reached a temple of their god.[1]


Ethoists wore a turban adorned with a holy symbol of their god, usually made from precious metal. Ethoists also wore a shoulder vestment with their god's symbol.[1]


All ethoists enjoyed great benefits from their temples including safe haven, monetary loans, companions, and assistants.[1]


Ethoists were always expected to follow the instructions of their superiors.[1]
