The Order of Truth
The Order of Truth is a collection of people known as Aeon Priests under the direction of a leader know as the Amber Pope. The Aeon Priesthood promotes law and order and they teach the virtues of science and logic. They revere the knowledge and power of the ancients and by studying the numenera they hope to gain some of the greatness of the ancients. Because of their knowledge and the power they hold over the numenera priests are usually very respected individuals and the Order holds great clout within the Steadfast.
Although the Order is not a religious institution to appeal to the uneducated and often superstitious common folk it sometimes cloaks itself in ritual and pomp, using ancestor worship and fervent reverence of numenera artifacts as means to its ends.
