Cassandra is commonly known as the Seductress, but also is known by other names such as the Harlot, the Glutton, etc. She has the most worshippers outside of Vanir and Talbral as she encourages people to embrace their sins and live for pleasure.
Dogma
The Seductress has one creed, “Live for Pleasure”. She is not as concerned as her brothers with serious issues, she just enjoys sin and excess and revels in seeing mortals chase their desires to their own ruination. She is not choosy in whom she gives power to as long as they use it to pursue pleasure at any cost.
Cassandra always appears as a woman, mostly devastatingly beautiful or else as an aspect of one of the seven sins.
Clergy and Temples
Clerics of the Seductress dress mostly in black, always with a gold holy symbol of an offered platter. With initiates and the general faithful this platter is filled to overflowing with items that the bearer desires or that represent the sins he chases. With Higher level clerics the platter is always empty, to symbolize that they have accepted the temptresses gifts and are on the path to paradise on earth.
Many who follow the path of the temptress falter or balk and see before the end that these gifts are often barbed by the very nature of what they are. For most of these poor fools it is too late and they have accumulated a debt of one sort or the other to the church in the beginnings of their path to destruction. These individuals make up the bulk of the slaves that most churches buy and sell and are a form of lesser currency in Talbral and Vanir. Most Churches of the Seductress maintain their coffers through the slavers guilds that have built up around this happening.
Outside of these realm though, the seductress has more converts than her brothers, and there are even sects in Vancalla that seemingly work against the main churches of the Three. In fact, Vancalla is the only place in the world where there are churches of the Seductress only, and no outward signs of followers of her brothers.
