|“||May the blessings of Duma be upon us.||„|
|~ The Duma Faithful's mantra.|
The Duma Faithful, also calling themselves "The Faithful", is a powerful and corrupt religious organization dedicated to the will of Lord Duma the War Father. They are also the state church and sole religion of Rigel.
This pious sect was founded in the Year 1989 of the Valentian Calendar alongside the founding of the country of Rigel and its Rigelian Empire by Duma himself as the War Father began implementing his teachings onto his own believers in Rigel's distant past, though they along with those teachings they hold dear would have disdain towards a sect of worshipers of the evil god's peaceful sister Mila, who would call themselves the Mila Faith (also known as the Mila Faithful).
While the Duma Faithful was originally created to worship Duma, the church eventually underwent a drastic change when Duma started to go mad. Lord Halcyon, a sage who is the previous High Priest of the Duma Faithful, was one of the few who became distressed at Duma’s sudden desire to conquer Valentia.
Eventually, Halcyon was replaced by Lord Jedah, who received Duma’s support, and fled to the Lost Treescape. Protected by Duma, Jedah transformed the Duma Faithful into a more militaristic organization.
During this time, the Duma Faithful began research into Terrors (the various supernatural enemy-type species of many monsters) as well as invocations under Jedah’s guidance, and many of its members offered themselves or sacrifices to Duma, giving them unearthly power, but altering their mental state or even depriving them of their souls, reducing them to madness.
- Jedah (leader)
- Halcyon (former leader)
- Tatiana (defected and joined the Deliverance)
- In the original game, the majority of the Duma Faithful bosses had uttered the same final quote upon defeat and death,"May the blessings of Duma.." in a hypnotic tone. In the remake, they have different last quotes, with the exception of Jamil, who now utters "Duma's blessings...be upon us...".
- They are also known as the "Duma Faith" and the "Cult of Duma.
