Ashura

The Heavenly Tyrant, the Lord of the Celestials: Ashura is the god of law, conquest, and victory. It was her blight that destroyed the Grey Cities, and cursed their lands as punishment for their arrogance, and it is said that it is she who oversees the rise and fall of empires. Ashura is the ultimate authority in the universe, according to her scriptures, and in her eyes all creatures submit to her somehow, be it directly or through their own superiors in chain of worship reaching unbroken to her heavenly seat.

The priests of Ashura often serve as lawkeepers in cities, and advisors to lords and governors. They take the responsibility of ensuring that the most important tenant of the Scriptures of Asura is heard far and wide. It is the in courthouse-like temples of Ashura that great legal casess are settled, and where the most high profile of criminals plead their defense, and the Justicars of Ashura that hunt down blasphemers, criminals, and rebels in the name of their lords, both earthly and divine.
