Beliefs

On Aurora every person is a must to have a form of a belief, however it is not a must to have a religion.

A belief is a faith in something, anything at all in fact. One could believe in multiple gods while the other may believe in nothing at all. One could actually follow a form of philosophy. If you wish to know more about the Religions to know better what I am saying, please click here.

May I however remind you that the following are only a few that are possible on the World. Please be creative as much as you like and want! Just keep in mind that if you try to invent some kind of religion or belief, it is not considered a religion unless you have the size of a country that truly follow it. You can make your character believe whatever you feel and like but don't assume them to be true.
