Four pointed star

The four pointed star is a common symbol in Jelism, as it was told to harold Jal's birth.

Jelism was the major religion during the age of the Order. Prior to the Hora Invassion believe in Jrova was minimal, considered a cult in comparison to the other faiths. Worship was overshadowed by worship of false gods, and other powers. With Jal's victory, and the legend that spread following the exodus of the Hora, a renewed interest in the creator rose. However, the established faiths here loath to give up power, mainly the Catholic Church, which having a hold on Europe, remained strong until the seventeen hundreds, prior to The Order making it's self publicly known. Once the Order had a firm hold on the world, other faiths, being viewed as falsehoods, where banned from open worship, and Jelism became taught in schools to strengthen the faith. The Jelism taught during this time enforced the concept that all superhumans are the resut of pacts with Mer, or decended from Hora, whom Jal repelled from the Earth. Indoctrination enforced that they would bring about the apocalypse in service to their dark masters, or due to inately born deception, and hate.
