The Agiae (Agios/Agias), blessed they before the Throne, may be described as men and women whose example of faith and works for the Redwood Throne are held as an example and inspiration to the faithful. The study of their lives reveals not only the complexities of theological thought within the faith, but also insights into lore and history, as their lives touched on many times and matters of import. (The stories are also frequently entertaining.)

A very brief summary on some of the best-known Agiae follows. Those wishing to know more are invited to seek out the Marath Suvla Alsmhouse.
