There really doesn't seem to be a focus on Saints in Arcanis. Obviously there are some in cannon (paths Knight of the Order of St. Tancred/St. Armon/St. Bona the Traveler, and Bretheren of the Order of St. Theomund the Missionary), but it isn't something that I recall ever coming up in modules, or the literature outside of paths.

If you are planning on submitting a path for PCI to consider in an upcoming book, or if you are designing a path for homeplay, I suspect that you would be okay to invent a Saint to be your order's patron.

While I wouldn't be surprised if someone proved me wrong, I'm not aware of any comprehensive lists of saints for Onara (outside Henry's head).

Sainthood doesn't seem to function as it does among Catholicism (from an outsider's point of view), but I should point out that during the Crusade one of the missions you had to do involved pilgrims going to battle sites in the Hinterlands to pay homage to those who fought and died there.

Soldier-Saints are a specific order whose membership is self-governed. Whether they count as "canonized" by the Mother Church or not is for someone of a higher pay grade to decide...

  • Soldier-Saint Alrameus Vernico of Plexus
    (from Bloody Sands of Sicaris and elsewhere)
  • Soldier-Saint Brigid, the Zealot of Naeraanth
    (from To Drink Poison from Gold)
  • Soldier-Saint Deimas val’Ishi
    (magic item owner from Forged In Magic 2, PCI 1113)
  • Sir Wolfram val'Ossan of Milandir
    (NPC Soldier-Saint appearing in Whispers in the Dark)

"Canonized" saints I found mention of include:
  • Saint Bertild the Merciful, of Nevanne
    (statue from The Deadliest Prey)
  • Saint Lopid the Mendicant
    (shrine and writings referenced in Carnival of Swords)
  • Saint Meritricus of Plexus
    (from In the Shadow of the Devil, PCI1006)
  • Saint Petronus, the patron saint of coral cutters.
  • Saint Varia, the patron saint of pearl divers.
    (Yarric saints mentioned in the Atria IK Domain Document)

(Why do I always find fun research projects when I should be sleeping?)

Those look great, I updated my first post to make a list of every Saint/Saint-Soldier.

Some of the Soldier Saints are canonized saints. Brigid the Zealot of Naeraanth is, I believe mentioned as the last Milandesian to be sainted by the MC in an old module by Jeffrey Whithaur ... don't remember the name of the module but the PCs are called in to investigate the background of someone else who is potentially in line to be sainted (who turns out to be noble and courageous ... and undead).

I am a lot less sure of other soldier saints. Sir Wolfram val'Ossan TMK is not a saint under the MC.

So in my search for more Saints I found this in Codex Arcanis 3.5

Quote:
This weight towards the nobility has given rise to a new breed of priest: the Knight
Militant. Since the betrayal of the Nierite honor guard centuries ago the Coryani Church has been forbidden its own army in the empire. With the independence of Milandir and the tradition of martial prowess of its people, perhaps it was only natural that the Church would gain its army in another nation. The knights of the church are sworn to a particular God, Valinor or Saint and are sponsored by a noble patron, be that a Duke, a Prelate or even the King. Five such Orders are active in Milandir today.


Which means we also know some of those Orders Militant.

  • Order of St. Armon
  • Order of St. Tancred
  • Order of St. Bona the Traveler
  • Order of St. Theomund the Missionary
  • Order of St. Lambertus the Avenger

Just helping out - Eric

Thanks Eric hadn't seen that one. Guess that's all five then.
