Description:

Originally viewed as something of a cult when they formed in 2911, the Worshippers of the Great Delphi on the world of Aristotle revived the ancient polytheistic religion of Terra’s ancient Greco-Roman cultures before the rise of Christianity, and have maintained their faith to this day. Though the religion is largely a collection of fables and anecdotes that even its own founders doubt are grounded in reality, the metaphorical teachings of the ancient Greeks and Romans, and the underlying currents of their belief structures, have been re-examined in this new religion, which earned the name Delphism after the Great Delphi Temple that brought it back.

Though many adherents of monotheistic religions mock the Delphists, this faith has gained popularity, particularly since the resurgence of the Aesirians. Like the Aesirians, Delphists believe that a god or demi-god personifies most abstract concepts and that said deities require tribute in order to assure favorable results in any venture.

Moreover, followers of Delphism believe that the future can be known by offering tributes to the gods, and so many worshippers occasionally make pilgrimages to Aristotle, to curry favor with their patron god or goddess and to make an offering at the Oracle of Delphi. After elaborate ceremonies, the Blessed of Delphi are then entrusted with a vision that can be either profoundly personal or grand in scope. It is said that one such vision, received by High Priestess Persephone Atwood in 3055, foretold Archon Melissa Steiner-Davion’s assassination and the collapse of the Federated Commonwealth, and even pointed a suggestive finger at Katherine Steiner-Davion as the usurper. Though dismissed as mere rumor, the mysterious circumstances surrounding Atwood’s disappearance in the summer of 3057 have many conspiracy theorists suggesting foul play and lending credence to the prophetic possibilities of Delphism.

[3064] During the FedCom Civil War, Allied forces struck at Aristotle as part of the second thrust of Operation Scatter, a diversionary action designed to overload the LAAF’s ability to respond.

Facing little resistance, the Twenty-Third Arcturan Guards quickly moved on to their next objective.
