Description:

In the beginning there was Peace, and she slept. All was quiet and dark and still and calm. In this state of perfection the world remained for a time immeasurable, a moment and eternity, and not a thing changed. Then, the Fool came to the universe from a place beyond, and woke her with his questions. Over time, he convinced her to create the cosmos, every star and every world, as a test of her strength. Finally, he challenged her to overcome time itself, a task she continues to this day. It is said, when Peace finally overcomes time the world as we know it will end, though what exactly that means varies depending upon the faith and religion.
Peace is a latent energy in the world, and she is neither aware of nor cares about the affairs of mortals and their small doings. Locked in her eternal battle against time, Peace has more pressing things to do than avail her power to lesser beings. While revered as the highest power there is, worshiping Peace is akin to worshiping everything, as without a doubt, everything in the universe is Peace (with the single exception of the Fool).

There are no major faiths to Peace, nor is there much ability to draw power through her for divine ritual. The fact that there is a universe at all is Peace’s blessing, and generally an unintended one as once she is done overcoming time there is no knowing what she will do when she notices the world of Falleron and its mortals.

Manifestations:

Peace has not been observed to manifest in a manner visible to mortals. It is said that those mortals with the greatest amount of divine power, after long years of quiet and meditation, can glimpse her in the night sky as she challenges time itself.

Orders:

There are no official orders devoted to Peace, as directly worshiping her is (more often than not) fruitless in benefit to mortals.

Cults:

A small number of people see the Fool as a being of great evil, a corrupter from beyond the world that deserves to be destroyed. These cults generally worship peace as a great destroyer, one who will set the world right and eradicate the Fool and all he has corrupted. The most famous of these was the Broken Circle, a short-lived death cult that took over Highchurch and portions of Ovid preaching to destroy all tainted things its followers could (which was everything). While put down in the most absolute way by the king of the time, such groups continue to exist here and there.
