Academagia Wiki

Religion is an organized way that man communicates with the gods. This statement is in and of itself a paradox, since communication requires organization, yet the simple feel is there. Man can express a sincere desire to live while falling off a cliff without having an organized though, yet only through Religion can a man express his feelings to the gods in times of peace as well as fear. Religion at its best is what separates man from Wyrm. Religion at its worst is not the fault of the gods, but rather the fault of the men who practice it. Those who remain faithful to their religion will experience lives of peace and harmony with the world around them, even if the world around them refuses to remain in peace and harmony with itself.

Ethics

Dominant Attribute: Insight

More than just uprightness in a religious sense, the Ethics Skill is steeped in truth and justice in the secular world as well.

Ethics is about doing the right thing not the expedient thing. Difficult as this may be for some people to grasp, this is the true essence of Ethics. Do what rightly should be done and not just what is easy to do.
