Godsend, 20th of Winterfeast, 2260
The Church du'Feu was founded in a period of time after the Lavoyard Rebellion started by Prince Lucius; Bishop Samuel du'Monant found the lack of Faith distubing and the lack of services and masses held by the Archbishop even more so. With this in thought, Bishop Samuel de'Monant started work on a new Codex, The Codex of Flame, including the original Codex of Light within its covers, the Codex of Flame offered both history and stories of faith new, still to this world. The Church offered new traditions to the Follower's of Ignis, as well as masses held often by the Priests of the Pheonix Nest Temple, in La Marche.

With the funding of House de Courtnay at the time, the Church du'Feu grew, forming a once secret order of Templars, during the Lavoyard Rebellion, which later became public. Once it became public, the Order of the Flaming Sword became guards of the Roads to Le Havre and La Marche, and guarded the holy grounds of Ignis, however, disbanding soon after with the many deaths of members of the order. However, with the crowning of a new Emperor and later Empress, Bishop Samuel became Archbishop with the disappearance and rumored death of Archbishop Elias. Samuel du'Monant held many masses in his time, and his health took a toll; A illness of both the throat and the mind.

However, Ignis granted Samuel du'Monant many days with his illness struck in bedrest and in a world unknown to him; Rarely recalling truth from falsehood and even at times, his own name. Bishop Samuel later passed, and with the death of his mentor, Father Henri started to travel from every point of Altera, passing out copies of the Codex, preaching, and looking into rumors and matters of faith, later deciding on his home church to be Saint Magnus's Cathedral in southern city of Avignon, However impressed by the faith of the Kingdom of Anhald; He choose the southern church as a starting point to his goals; Converting the south to the faith of Ignis.

Truthfully the difference is little between the Church of Light and the Church du'Feu, both Churches follow the word of Ignis and even use the source material of the Codex of Light. However, the Church du'Feu preaches differently, believing the Wings of Flame that Ignis Synnove appears on, as a sign of gender, seeing her as a Mightly-Angel, upon her wings of flame, as the Church of Light disagrees; being Ignis Synnove to be a male, and refer to her as such.

Another difference between the two is the services held by the Church du'Feu, the Church du'Feu believes in the formal right of Baptism; Washing away old ways and purifying disorder, a formal welcome into the faith of Ignis. The Priesthood of the Church du'Feu are often travelers as well, making the road a home and following it, to preach and teach.

This thread is the history/activies that happened under Francis's era, and hence has passed onto BrianAT16 this is purely here for the history of the house.

I'd consider posting the original first draft if it wasn't so cringeworthly.
