Hunger is one of the great trials.
  — St. Liwan[1]

St. Liwan was a saint of the Church of Ilmater and the patron of the House of St. Liwan's Blessing.[1]

St. Liwan's teachings focused on food and diet and the peaceful effect they had on people. His followers would not only feed the hungry; they insisted on providing the best food possible as a means of bringing satisfaction from want. Liwan believed that even war could be eradicated if all people everywhere were well-fed.[1]
