Reason for Being
Within the Celestial Court are a number of sub-courts or chambers. The two main chambers are the Upper Chamber and the Hall of Mind. The Hall of Mind sit in judgment over the actions of all intelligent beings for it was set up to them to govern the emotions of the sentient races.
Members of the Hall of Mind
There are eight deities who sit in the Hall of Mind (note that in some uncivilised lands where Hamaskis is not known the Hall of Mind only has seven occupants). The members of the Hall of Mind are:
|Sindla||Luck and Fate||Aged but Handsome Woman||White||Pair of Dice|
|Asrel||Love and Beauty||Beautiful Woman||Unspecific||Unspecific|
|Usrel||Peace||Motherly woman with arms outstretched||White||White Flower|
|Libra||Justice||Woman holding scales of justice||Grey||Scales of Justice|
|Courga||Grace||Graceful warrior girl/Rotund Man||Unspecific||Cat|
|Telak||Courage||Heavily armoured warrior accompanied by a lion||Gold||Golden Sword|
|Hamaskis||Learning||An old man or a fresh faced youth with a huge open book||Purple||Staff|
With the exception of Sindla and Hamaskis, who also sit in the Upper Chamber of the Celestial Court, these Gods were all minor deities before The Banishing. They have risen to prominence since then as the sentient civilisations have risen on Titan.
The Flawed Emotions
What is apparent from looking at the Hall of Mind’s members is that the emotions they govern are virtues. Flawed emotions such as Malice or Envy are not represented. This is the reason why Slangg and Tanit are not depicted as being members of the Hall. However, their links to the Hall are strong. It may be that the Hall does encompass the less desirable emotions, however, from current religious teachings this is not the case.
