As an Ekimelahwian there are some clear guidelines that are to be followed; as a Holy Warrior or Cavalier you should follow the code below. This code is the guidance by which you set examples to the world that you strive to protect, a Cavalier is the shining example of the faith, one who is given great power by the Goddess and to break their tenets would be to break favour with the deity and lose not only the power that he has gifted but more, the very purity of their souls. Following these tenets are a guideline to how piety works and how, as a follower of the faith, your piety can be increased and decreased at the whim of the Gods.
Tenets of The Cavaliers
You will preserve the Church of Ekimelahw and his tenets, bowing to those Pure of Faith and obeying his enlightened in all things.
You will uphold the laws of the lands in which you travel as long as those laws are properly appointed by the authority of an appointed superior.
You will move to control crime in lawful areas under the auspices of the law found in civilised states or under the law of the sword whilst travelling in ungoverned areas.
You will administer fair and just punishment to any found guilty of lawbreaking in adherence with code 3 of the tenets of a Cavalier of Ekimelahw.
You will allow none to escape the divine will of Ekimelahw, no mortal, immortal, divine nor ruler is above the law of the Goddess. You are her instrument upon the land and you shall administer her justice and punishment to all regardless of station.
You will be obedient to the will of Ekimelahw and your superiors, be they members of the Church or senior ranking individuals in the society in which you live. This right is forfeited if they are not duly appointed by an official acting with the full authority of the law or if it conflicts with tenets 3,4 or 5 of a Cavalier of Ekimelahw.
You will act to preserve the balance of all things, ensuring that the light never encompasses the darkness nor the dark to snuff out the light. Without balance there can be no order, without order no law.
You will not lie.
You will administer the punishment sentenced to any individual that requests you too in order to prepare their soul for Ekimelahw.
You will not receive any reward for the works of Ekimelahw save that which the church provides for you.
