This guild is in charge of maintaining all functioning churches throughout the city, from the small chapels in the slums to the grand cathedral of Bahamut located in the Wealthy District. The guild encompasses all of the major deities and most clergy members are very accepting of those who worship members of the pantheon different from them. They are less tolerant of people who worship deities outside their established pantheon. The clergy try not to get too involved in the politics of the city, though their representative usually acts as the mediator when there are arguments in the council chamber. The leader of the guild is known as the Pope. The current Pope is Pope Alexander VII, a devout worshiper of the entire pantheon, though he began his career as a priest for the deity Alexander.
