1. Torreón is militaristic state founded on the strength of arms, and as such the dominant cult is that of Vanya (called Faña in the local language). The majority of the population has a strong attachment to the religion, in which Faña represents the leader of the population towards an ethics of conduct imbued with the national pride, the love for battle and the exhibition of strength in general. For the same reasons, the second favourite of the Torreóners is obviously the General (even if these are associated less to the nation and more to an ideal of honourable conduct and courage in war). The Judge completes the trinity of the Immortals most worshipped by the Torreóners, in the belief that he embodies that divine law and that sense of order that exudes from the nobility and permeates the layered classes of Torreóner society.
2. The cults of Valerias, Milan and the Ambassador are considered minor in Torreón but are tolerated, and follow the military and political rapport with Narvaez, the cult of Ixion is also popular in Torreón, strong from the proselytism practiced by missionaries and Narvaezan fundamentalists, with the intent of unifying the two nations under only one faith.
