The Church of Novara is the main religious body in the United Kingdom of Novara & Archelonia and all her colonies. It is also the main religious body in Bourgogne & Italia with denominations in Arago, Lucidia, Nascita, and the Realm of Light.


Pantheon

The Novaran Pantheon consists of many different gods and goddesses. At the core lay the main Gods of the House of Novaricus, in total Thirteen Gods.


Irenaeus

Ireneaeus is known as the Supreme God and is also known as Rey. The Protector of the Laws of the realm and presides over the heavens shining with a heavenly light. He is the Novaran personification of the Greek God Zeus & Roman God Jupiter. Irenaeus is the protector of the king and his family. His wife is his sister Joelle, who serves as the Queen of the Heavens, and through her gave birth to two sons, Marcus, the God of War, and Martel, the God of Forging and Smith, as well as two daughters, Victoire, the Goddess of Victory, and Sylvie, Goddess of the Forest.

However Irenaeus was known for being an adulterer, and has had many children from other sources. Through a Nymph, he was the father of Luna & Solaris, the Goddess of the Moon and God of the Sun respectively. In addition, he fathered many mortal men, including the semi-mythical Gémeaux brothers Excelleur & Beaudoux, Mnestria & Helene. (All from Lydia, Queen of Aquitania). Rhadampis & Novarus (Both from Dana, Princess of Angoulema.) and Détruire, the son of the Novaran Peincess Aethelhild.

Joelle

Joelle is the Queen of the Gods, also known by the name Reine. She is worshiped as a the patron goddess of birth and marriage. Many authors and stories portray Joelle as the jealous suitor to her husbands adulterous antics, and often times punish the woman and their children for her husbands adulterous behavior. She is the mother of Marcus, the God of War, Martel, the God of Forging and Smithing, Victoire the Goddess of Victory & Sylvie, the Goddess of the Forest. She is the Novaran personification of the Greek Goddess Hera & the Roman Goddess Juno.

Common symbols attributed to her are the pomegranate, the crow, the cow & the peacock, the latter two being her sacred animals.

Janus

Janus is the God of Gateways and Beginnings, and the Novaran Personification of the Roman God of the same name. He represents the personification of the starts of peace and war, harvests, marriage, birth, and other important events in a person's life. Little is known in the various stories about where he came from, though the church has officially written that he was a wanderer who was deified by Irenaeus after successfully turning back an invasion.

Termina

Termina is the Goddess of Boundaries and Endings, and is the Novaran Personification of the Roman God Terminus. She is one of the few deities in any faith to have her own feast day, February 23. During this ceremony, people would pour holy water onto her stone markers and placed wreathes and flowers to bless that stone. These stone markers would be placed at the boundaries of worlds or of cities, and it is said that these markers would protect their worlds from danger.

It is said that Termina is the only goddess who does not give way to Irenaeus when he moved his temple to the ancient capitol. It is also said that a curse is placed upon those who move the Stone Markers.

Victoire

Victoire is the Goddess of Victory, but she is Novara's personification of not only the Roman Goddess VIctoria (Greek's Nike), but the Greek Goddess Athena (Roman's Minerva). As such she is also the primary deity of Defensive War, in comparison to Marcus as God of Offensive War. She was held in high regard by the Novaran & Archelonian tribes as their military commanders often worshiped her for victory. Victoire is also the patron god for, among others: Medicine, the Arts, Dyeing, Science & Trade. She is the daughter of Irenaeus, sprung from his head.

Her symbols include the Owl, which is her sacred animal, and the Olive Tree. 

Ponua

Ponua is the Goddess of Peace & Love, Novara's personification of the Roman Goddess Venus (Greek's Aphrodite). In addition to her functions as goddess of those, she is also the patron god of beauty, sex, prosperity & fertility. She is said to be born from the seafoam that created the land of Saint-Illiers and the numerous worlds from a small island (which gave rise to the naming of the province Ile-de-Archelone or Island of Archelonia.

Her symbols include the rose, which is offered at her temple in Veritas, Novara, and Myrtle, known for its sweet scented fowers, evergreen leaves and medicinal & magical properties.

Marcus

Marcus is the God of Offensive War, named after the Roman Mars (Greek Ares), and was the son of Iraeneus and Joelle. He is also noted for being the guardian of agriculture. As a god he represents the savagery of war, and as such many people worship him for the sake of ensuring glory through battle.

His symbol is the woodpecker which according to priests is a courageous and spirited bird which has a beak so strong it can pierce through even the toughest oak. The wolf is another symbol, but one borrowed from that of Rhomania, and is more tied from the story of the founders of Rhoma, of which has been reused as the story of the founding of Veritas.
