Crimson Dawn is alot of things to alot of people.On the planet Glom Tho it is involved in most things, having a hand in everything from municipalities and services to corporations large and small. Crimson Dawn presents itself as a sort of universal church, celebrating "The Many Gods". Crimson Dawn governs the planet Glom Tho I and is a theocracy, in which Xanxus Drol claims to be a divine instrument of The Many Gods, leading the people of Glom Tho in a brighter future then its past..
Crimson Dawn's theology is centered around the idea that there are multiple deities, each with their own unique attributes and powers. Members of the group believe in a pantheon of gods galacticly, holding that every religion and cultures gods are to be cherished. They hold that each individual has a personal relationship with one or more of these gods, and that it is through these relationships that they can find meaning and purpose in life. Several matters of everyday life, such as trading, are seen as holy actions that please The Many Gods.
While Crimson Dawn is a relatively new religious group to most of the galaxy it is actually very old but was not widely practiced; Many of its ancient texts come from relics found in an asteroid field. It spread like wildfire through out Zann Territories, and it has gained a significant following among those who feel disconnected from traditional religious institutions. Its universalist approach and emphasis on personal relationships with the gods have drawn in many people who feel that other religions are too rigid or exclusive. For some it serves as an additional layer to their faith, others have converted fully to worship of The Many Gods, rather then just their specific God or Gods.
Crimson Dawn is a theocracy, where Xanxus Drol is said to have been chosen by The Many Gods to represent both Them and Their mission in this galaxy. Xanxus, known as The High Priest, is assisted by the Crimson Council, which consists of several "Boucho's" which means to department head. The Council itself has no power and serves as an advisory board, however the Boucho's each oversee an area of operation.
Crimson Dawn is not Zann, it is not owned by Zann, and it is not controlled by Zann. Once the the faction Crimson Dawn was a NAT of the Zann government, on Year 24 Day 333 Ximaro Jix granted independence to the religious group and its sub factions, giving ownership of it and the planet Glom Tho to Xanxus Drol, While the group is proud of its heritage and remains allied with the Zann Consortium, we want outsiders to understand the following
- We have our own politics and diplomacy
- We have our own planet/territory
- We have our own laws and poilicies
- We are not Zann, we are Crimson Dawn, we are Glom Tho
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for they will learn.
Blessed are they that trade: for they please The Many Gods.
Blessed are the sinners: for they shall inherit the universe.
Blessed are the imperfect: for they shall see The Many Gods.
Blessed are the Congregant : for they shall be called the children of The Many Gods.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the way it goes.
Blessed are ye, when sentients shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in Eternity: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
