Physical AppearanceHeight: 5'4"
Personality and interestsSelena loves her religion more than anything. Her primary mission in life is servitude to Jakhara. She was crowned queen of Shenandoah after her father unexpectedly died due to falling ill. Her legitimacy was immediately challenged by the noblemen given that she was not born to a royal mother. The lords challenged her and starved her people until she agreed to submit to being queen in name only. It was then that Jakhara destroyed her enemies, establishing her supremacy and dominion over all nations. Since then, everything she works for is in the glory of He, her father, her god.
DogmaSelena does not permit sacrilege or blasphemy and exterminates it with extreme prejudice. Unlike most religious empires, the people of Shenandoah are to pray and submit to Jakhara on a personal level but they are allowed to worship other gods as long as they revere him. One week per month they celebrate their Jakhara, but the rest of month they are to go about their business as usual. Selena enforces total participation, any refusal would be considered a crime against Jakhara, the penalty for which is death. Her empire maintains moral regulations on how people are to interact. Disobedience results in imprisonment. Despite these harsh and unwavering doctrines, the people of Shenandoah live relatively blissful lives.
How are they worshipped?Selena does not allow herself to be worshipped, as she reserves that only for her father. She holds councils where people may express their grievances which she then conveys to Jakhara when he visits her, as he does on a regular basis. If the grievance is noteworthy, Jakhara will personally see to its resolution, often times acting as the invigilator for civil disputes. This personal interaction maintains adherence to his order. Nobody loves a distant god.
