Northos is home to the Holy Forest, most sacred place in all of Averal and also the final resting place of the most dangerous artifact to ever touch the world. The Northern Rite believes that its first duty, before any other, is to ensure the safety and sanctity of that forest. They follow hand-picked gods of either the forest itself, or whose natures specifically lend themselves to defeating the forces of evil that mike seek to pervert the Forest. Burrowed from the Church, Isaac and Jean defend against the evils of the land both seen and unseen. Sylviel is the divine Spirit of the Wood, and they pay homage to her Liege, Coirrana, and Lover, Torrag. The Final god of nature Kasaran, acts as boogieman of the Woods, and also as Psychopomp, but is not very actively worshiped.
They follow the Solar Saints of the New Church in practice as well, but pay little attention to Moira and Ernesto, focusing more on Isaac in his rolls as All-Seeing Eye and Judge of the Dead, and Jean for her dedication to fighting evil.
