The Orthodox Church of Uhuru Medhā

At the top rank of political power in the Solar Kingdoms is the Thearch of Mitrakam, the Prophet of the Faith. In a constitutional monarchy, that would be the equivalent of the monarchy. Since the Kingdoms are a theocracy, the head of state is an elected member of the Orthodox Church of Uhuru Medhā (the state religion).

Divisions in the Church

The Unification Path, the least controversial option, has the greatest number of adherents (55% or more of the members of the faith). Their Path-Mark is a circle (o).

The Primal Path, which focuses on the revealed truth of all seven Emanations, but with a focus on the common and hidden apocrypha from Rtam, Vatya, Arament, and Sarvatāt (the elemental domains). Their Path-Mark is a carat (^).

The Somatic Path, which focuses on the revealed truth of all seven Emanations, but with a focus on the common and hidden apocrypha from Marut and Matas (of the Vivacism domains). Their Path-Mark is a horizontal line (-).

The Radiant Path, which focuses on the revealed truth of all seven Emanations, but with a focus on the common and hidden apocrypha of Rana Taws (of the Spiritualist domain). Their Path-Mark is a crossed horizontal and vertical line (+).

All of those are open to any caste of Janya, although there are undoubtedly Paths more stereotypical for each caste. For the most part, Outcaste and Kravyad are welcome in the Unification Path, although they do not traditionally adorn their foreheads with Path-Marks.

For the Cleric Caste, there are additionally Active and Passive schools of each Path, reflecting both martial / evangelist and study / meditation traditions.
