Malachite Sects
Most Malachites belong to a sect. The sects should not go against the overarching and shared beliefs of the Malachites; however, just as with any religion, the words of Malachi and the Malachite Tenets can be interpreted in various fashions.

If you would like to post a description of your Malachite’s Sect below, please use the form below for the sake of consistency

Please Note: This thread is only for personal reference, ease of recruitment for personal plots revolving Malachite sects, and consistency between members of the same sect/references to characters of specific sects. It is considered to be for flavor, and may be updated at any time by its submitter.

Involites

Sect’s Head Sheppard: Innocent Gaillard
Requirements of Sect Membership: Must be Invited
Rarity: Rare/Fringe
Sect Description:
An incredibly fringe sect of the Malachites, the Involites do not allow people to convert of their own wish into their sect and live in an isolated neighborhood adjacent to Evesdown. Most Involites never leave the neighborhood (except for, potentially, the year that they are at the Institute) through out their entire lives.

Involite men and women live in segregation, with children likewise living in segregation by gender except for during specific holiday events. The family unit never leaves their home together, and even inside the home, there are 'common' and 'private' areas based upon gender. Their neighborhood schools are run specific to their teaching, and avoid any discussion of sexual interaction -- making it seem almost criminal in nature. Sexual activity and courting are strictly forbidden and the punishment for producing a child out of wedlock is banishment from the sect. This sect runs exclusively off of arranged marriages for this reason, and marriages to someone outside the sect are incredibly rare and often create tension between the new comer and others

Involites, on the rare occasion they are outside of their neighborhood, often come across as forward and make others uneasy, as they interpret secrecy, lies, and cruelty as going against the scope of Malachi's words and wishes. As a whole, they are a very peaceful and accepting sect, who believes that at any moment Malachi will return and that they will be ready to be taken to Celestia whether the rest of the city will be or not.

As a fun note: Involites usually name their children after powerful religious figures or religious symbolism.

Temperants

Sect’s Head Sheppard:Jonathan Raines
Prominent Members: Taylor Longfellow; Li Amjad
Rarity: Popular
Requirements of Sect Membership: None.
Sect Description:
Considered one of the most passive sects of the Malachites, Temperants are raised to believe that no one and no way is more or less important or right than any other. They are by-in-large a selfless group who runs charities and non-profits as well as volunteers around the city on a regular basis. Temperants live anywhere in the city that they can afford and desire, but usually live below their means so that they can give to others as they see fit.

Unless someone catches a Temperant on their way to their weekly, volunteer-hosted ceremonies or catch a glimpse of their Circuit necklace, it is likely that you will never know that the person you're speaking to is specifically a Temperant and not just a seriously kind person. While these Malachites do recruit, they only do so when they believe that it would be ideal to another person's Harmony -- and thus will not bring it up in regular conversation or go door-to-door. Instead, if you speak to one about their religion, they might invite you to join them at the next ceremony.

An extremely open-minded sect, most Temperants prefer discussion to debate, and peace to war. They are taught to surrender instead of fight in stressful situations, as fighting has a tendency to destroy the Harmony of both parties.

As a fun note, these Malachites prefer to call all people by their title and a last name. Like the regency period, you might hear a couple who is married refer to one another as Mrs. and Mr. with the same last name.
