Mother Porrima, guide our hearts and minds so that we may be the tools of temperance and good will.”

 

Common affirmative phrase: “Porrima, watch over us.”

Zealot Groups:

Last Watch: The most devoted followers of Porrima are a minimalistic order known as the Last Watch. The Last Watch believes that as the most dedicated followers of Porrima they have the responsibility to give, even unto a point when it could ensure self-destruction. Removing one’s self as a variable that needs to be saved, provided for, or concerned for ensures that nearly every member of the Last Watch eventually becomes a martyr. With age, the longest lived members of the Last Watch will refuse to drink, eat, or take resources that could be used to save others. This form of self-denial results in a slow and suffered death.
