Preserver (Messenger/Ministering Spirit Discipline)
Preservers are Messenger/Ministering Spirits who concern themselves with the nature of things the way Elyon created them. They are deeply saddened by the corruption of the earth and all that is within as opposed to the very good state in which it once existed with the promise of eventual perfection. They are sickened when their fallen brothers make efforts to worsen the twisted conditions around them. They are especially offended at how many of the fallen elohim have chosen to reject the appearance they were created bearing and have chosen to appear more like other created beasts of the earth. The offense come less in the change of appearance and more from the choice of these bestial elohim to embrace and encourage harmful and destructive qualities men often associate with these beasts of the earth.
Preservers seek to slow, stop, or even reverse the spread of corruption over nature. One way they do this is through the use of the Spiritual Effect Presence. When using Presence Versions the Preserver pays only two thirds the normal Resolve Cost and gains the additional benefit of negating one level of Evil Area Influence.
A more direct way Preservers reduce corruption is defeating the Evil and therefore removing its influence. Preservers know the ways of Bestial Fallen and get Boon:1 to any rolls they make against them.
Preservers must learn available Spiritual Effects from the Presence Family as soon as possible. In regards to Weapon Effects, Preservers will only use the Staff and Bow. The may choose a Horse, but will not progress to a Chariot.
