The Impartial One, Lady Judgment

The Impartial One, Lady Judgment

Life & Death – (LN) Juday

Favors no one. She believes only in the order of life and death, and in each soul’s actions during the cycle. Favored by those who commit terrible acts for a good reason, judges, executioners, victims and those who have been wronged by others

The Impartial One does not involve herself directly in the mortal world, preferring instead to hear prayers from a distance while awaiting her true purpose- judging the souls of the recently departed. She is the appointed measure by which each soul is judged and condemned to one of four fates: Love, in which the soul is reunited with Mother Moon in eternal bliss, free from the threat of the End Time. Life, in which the soul is born again into creation and given a new life with which to solidify it’s ultimate purpose. A soul may petition Lady Judgment for this opportunity, either in hopes of avoiding the fate they believe they deserve, or in hopes of helping others to find their way to their own ultimate purpose, or she may pass this judgment as a reward or punishment for someone who is not yet fit for their ultimate purpose.

Thirdly, torment, reserved for those who are depraved beyond redemption, or who have given themselves willingly to the Dark One. Lastly, those few whose souls are rejected entirely by all the gods, or who deny the gods purposefully and vehemently in action and deed, are rendered in to nothingness, condemned to a cessation of existence that diminishes the essence of each and every god.

The Festival of the Impartial Ones is another somber holiday, dedicated to familial or community remembrance of those who have recently passed on. It is common to have likenesses or personal items of those who have passed put up around town at their home, business, or gravesite. Soulboxes are placed near the likeness (one for each of the four paths a soul may take after death) and offerings are placed in to the boxes based on the perception of those who knew the departed. It is believed that the gods will passersby to put the most coins in the box that indicates the soul’s fate. The coins from each box are then divested by the departed’s loved ones – the emptiness box buried at the gravesite of the departed, the torment box given to the family, the life box given to the local community for the good of all, and the love box given as charity to the needy.
