Religions and rituals
Numerous religions and rituals spread their messages throughout New Eden.
People and ... other entities
While there is no concrete evidence of religious intervention in the world of New Eden - though one would be unwise to maintain this in the face of the Amarr and outright suicidal in suggesting it to the Blood Raiders - there is, nonetheless, a number of people in the world both past and present who some believe to have been touched by holy spirits.
- St. Arzad is the patron saint of the Starkmanir.
- Cold Wind, Wind-of-the-West, Mountain Wind, Storm Wind, and Heart-of-the-Forest are Caldari divine spirits.
