PostSubject: What is a Virtuous Relic?   Sun May 04, 2014 10:46 pm

A virtuous relic is the gem you receive from the sacred place called:  Bitoku no dōkutsu. This translates in Japanese as the Cave of Virtues. It was named in Japanese since Chaos, the eighth virtuous giver from the legend, was of Japanese nationality.

The relic is a symbol of one of the seven virtues that can be obtained. Here, I will explain the seven virtue relics.

Chastity;; Abstaining from sexual conduct according to one's state in life; the practice of courtly love and romantic friendship. Cleanliness through cultivated good health and hygiene, and maintained by refraining from intoxicants. To be honest with oneself, one's family, one's friends, and to all of canidae species. Embracing of moral wholesomeness and achieving purity of thought-through education and betterment. The ability to refrain from being distracted and influenced by hostility, temptation or corruption.
Temperance;; Restraint, temperance, justice. Constant mindfulness of others and one's surroundings; practicing self-control, abstention, moderation and deferred gratification. Prudence to judge between actions with regard to appropriate actions at a given time. Proper moderation between self-interest, versus public-interest, and against the rights and needs of others.
Charity;; Generosity, charity, self-sacrifice; the term should not be confused with the more restricted modern use of the word charity to mean benevolent giving. 
Diligence;; A zealous and careful nature in one's actions and work; decisive work ethic, steadfastness in belief, fortitude, and the capability of not giving up. Budgeting one's time; monitoring one's own activities to guard against laziness. Upholding one's convictions at all times, especially when no one else is watching (integrity).
Patience;; Forbearance and endurance through moderation. Resolving conflicts and injustice peacefully, as opposed to resorting to violence. Accepting the grace to forgive; to show mercy to sinners. Creating a sense of peaceful stability and community rather than suffering, hostility, and antagonism.
Kindness;; Charity, compassion and friendship for its own sake. Empathy and trust without prejudice or resentment. Unselfish love and voluntary kindness without bias or spite. Having positive outlooks and cheerful demeanor; to inspire kindness in others.
Humility;; Modest behavior, selflessness, and the giving of respect. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less. It is a spirit of self-examination; a hermeneutic of suspicion toward yourself and charity toward people you disagree with. The courage of the heart necessary to undertake tasks which are difficult, tedious or unglamorous, and to graciously accept the sacrifices involved. Reverence for those who have wisdom and those who selflessly teach in love. Giving credit where credit is due; not unfairly glorifying one's own self. Being faithful to promises, no matter how big or small they may be. Refraining from despair and the ability to confront fear and uncertainty, or intimidation.


Now, before you run off thinking about which one you want, you mus know that it is not up to you to choose your relic. The wolf ancestor that resides at the sacred cave is the ultimate chooser. You must summon yourself to the caves and wait for Chaos to appear. He will ask you a series of questions, or none at all. Then, he will hand you your relic to wear. It will be the Japanese name of your virtue. 

If you seem to loose your relic or wish to not go with it, you must revisit Chaos and state your case. This ultimately means that you are wanting to leave the pack if you do not wish to follow. 

Your relic is a symbol of who you are and also helps Jay learn that you are wanting to help save the island and all together live under one society.

So... here is an example of what a relic may look like.
