Justice, Wisdom, the Keeper of the Scales

It is through the inspiration of Justice that mortals build ordered societies, and so prosper. Each person playing their part, the whole greater than the sum of those parts. It is through Wisdom that knowledge is gained and preserved. It is the Keeper of the Scales that sees that evil is punished, that all are held to account, and that the law is honored as it must be. He is a stern, but never needlessly cruel god, a benevolent patriarch. It is through him that law, government, and society become more perfect over time. Justice has progressed from the anarchy of the ancient past, through the cruel despotism of empires, to the current enlightened age when Knighthood is earned by the worthy and serfs may purchase their freedom, and even nobility must respect the law. In time, it is said, justice and the rights of all will advance even further with his guidance, though it is hard to imagine what form this might take.

Followers of Justice strive particularly for the destruction of all things Chaotic, especially Daemons.
