Do you have the same religious beliefs that you had as a child? If so, why? If not, how and why did they change?
I’m sure I’ve answered this one before. The Venatori don’t exactly have a religion. We believe that the world was created and this creator made four races – Aeternus, Dragons, Primeval Vampires and Humans. Technically you could include The Deva as a race as well since Angels and Demons don’t fit into these four categories but they our creator never intended them to live on earth. They came before the four races.
Our creator gave us the Clandestine Providence which strictly says, humanity is to be protected from the supernatural races and kept innocent of the occult. Their religion was stripped of supernatural influence in most cases, but there are many instances of it littered throughout their Bible.
This is what I believe to be true. The Venatori teach us that we – the Venatori – are the result of Aeternus breeding with humans. Magnus are Venatori who breed with half dragons. The Venatori became the police of the Clandestine Providence through their own arrogance. While not precisely what I learned as a child it is my belief now. I do my part in changing the role of the Venatori, but when you are half human and not accepted into your world it becomes difficult. But I am making changes – lives are not being saved – but they have to at least give them a semblance of a trial. Which is slowing being seen by the younger generation. It only takes one.
