T H E ● W H I T E ● I R I S
The echoes of pain that the Lifebringer felt in the core of her being were surely felt throughout the land by all those who were good in their hearts. One of her children, one of her precious family members, was forcibly torn from her, down into the depths of the Spider's madness. In response to this most grievous of sins, the faithful banded together under the guidance of both Archon and the archangel Glory, resolute in seeing Life restored to her rightful place beside the All-Mother and steadfast in their duty to protect the lives that their Goddess valued so much. With war and pestilence as their catalyst, the White Iris blossoms, prepared to do whatever it takes to heal their Goddess's broken heart.

{ Tenets of the All-Mother }
  • Thou shalt show favor to new mothers, in memory of what once was, and aid the new life of this world to guide them away from the dark.
  • Thou shalt stay their hand against those who have not given cause to harm, for to give injury to the defenseless is the height of blasphemy. Thou shalt also not allow to come to harm any living beast, as they are mindless and oblivious to their sins.
  • Thou shalt care for thine nude self, in temperance and in readiness, to always be prepared to settle a score should it arise.
  • Thou shalt care for their home and all the life therein, for one must always be prepared to lay down their arms once their duty is done.
  • Thou shalt worship as much in action as prayer, and settle all grudges which arise in one’s community and personally.
  • Thou shalt record all grudges issued against their personage or community, and share the book amongst one’s faithful, so that all who deserve vengeance shall not be forgotten.
  • Thou shall record the first grudge as thus: “Jishrim and all who pay him homage in any manner or form, for stealing Life from mortalkind.”
  • Thou shalt care and provide for all those in thine community and beyond who pursue the righting of grudges.
  • Thou shalt prune and water thine plants in need of nourishment just as thou wouldst feed and care for thine ailing sisters, or travelers in thine grove.

«} Who are the White Iris?

The White Iris is a religious organization dedicated to the preservation of all life and their Goddess, Shalherana. With members of all walks of life, the Iris' services and members can be found wherever there is a darkness that requires some light. If one is in need of a healing hand or a shoulder to lean upon, they will surely find a member of the Iris beside them, stalwart, and firm in their duties.

«}
«} Ascension Branch
The members of the order who have gained true favour with the All-Mother. They use their unique gifts and talents to further the agenda of the order and are viewed as its most senior members and oversee all branches as a beacon of guidance.

«} Faithful Branch
These members of the order to not seek to deepen their connection to Shalherana any further, but still worship her. Their roles are amongst the most diverse in the order and they will often be found doing any number of tasks, from keeping the gardens to organizing the Iris's libraries and wish not to delve into the harsh realities of violence too often.

«} Guardian Branch
With the loss of both Life and Archon, the path the faithful must walk has taken a turn down a darker road, for better or for worse. Their deity demands vengeance, demands that the crimes and sins levied against her be put right. These are the grudges, slights against all that must be rectified by the actions of her faithful. Where a grudge must be settled, a debt paid in full on behalf of a person or community, this branch steps in. While they are defenders of life and nature still, they do so now on a path that may end with bloodshed, if the path of vengeance takes them there.

«} Middle Branch
While lower than the aforementioned branches, this branch is still of vital importance to the Iris's structure and can be best compared to the sturdy trunk of the tree. After an appropriate amount of tutelage in the ways of the All-Mother and commitment to her ways, the seedlings will grow into this rank, where they will then commit to one of the main three branches of the Iris.

«} Seedling
All life has to start somewhere and it is no different for life within the order. The seedlings of the Iris are the members who are the most junior. With careful attention from their seniors, they will surely grow into wonderful members of the Iris.

«} Roots
All of nature is connected. Beneath the soil of Altera, there are countless different roots attached to a nearly unfathomable amount of trees. Roots are what keep the trees firm and planted, but they also represent a deep interconnectedness and sense of community in nature. All trees are tree's and all have great value, no matter their look. This holds true for the Iris, who places deep respect and trust in the roots that help support their goals. Root organisations are not necessarily affiliated with the iris, but they are viewed as being a fundamental member of its community.
«} Ally Roots
These roots are the trusted organisations or people of Altera who directly ally themselves with the Iris, but are not official members of it. Oftentimes they share one goal but work towards it in different ways.
«} All-Mother Roots
The organisations and other faithful of Shalherana who directly support the Iris, but are not directly members. The Iris will support and aid these sister organisations to the best of its ability.
«} Preserve Roots
These are the people, settlements, and socities which require the aid of the Iris. They can be found all over the world, but the Iris will still do all they can to preserve the lives they touch in these places.

«} Locations
«} Emyn Arnen
The centralised location from which the Iris operates. The location of this grove is a well-kept secret and it is not lightly shared with anyone. To that end, it does not feature on any known maps nor does it have passages dedicated to it in any tomes. It hosts a temple dedicated to the All-Mother.

«}

«} Blackstone Cathedral
The cathedral houses one of the oldest known relics of Shalherana, a fruit tree that wards off the encroaching forces of darkness.

«}
«} White Willow Hospital
A hospital in the centre of the capital city of the realm. It offers free health care to the citizens and visitors to the city alike, all without a single charge. Daeron Eldrin-Hawklight is the chief physician, but a number of others work there too. Currently is the premiere location for treating Storms Sickness.

«}
«} Alderwood Cove
A recent acquisition of Lord Daeron, this small town is protected by but not beholden to the Iris. A shrine to the Allmother exists therein and the fields are all blessed under her name.
