Almighty Dominus

LoreEdit

Long ago, an archangel split into two separate personas, a golden being representing the ultimate good and a shadowy one one representing unabated evil. Each held great power, and before long each had amassed a legion of followers. Opposition was only natural, and the resulting conflict engulfed the surface, the Heavens, and the Underworld alike. It was all too clear that a ruler, who could find a balance between good and evil, was necessary, lest all be consumed in the fires of never-ending war.

Name originEdit

Dominus translates from Latin language as "master, owner; Lord, God; beloved". As a title of sovereignty, Dominus under the Roman Republic had all the associations of the Greek Tyrannos; refused during the early principate, it finally became an official title of the Roman Emperors under Diocletian (this is where the term dominate, used to describe a political system of Roman Empire in 284-476, is derived from). Dominus, the French equivalent being "sieur", was the Latin title of the feudal, superior and mesne, lords, and also an ecclesiastical and academical title. The ecclesiastical title was rendered in English "sir", which was a common prefix before the Reformation for parsons. The shortened form "dom" is used as a prefix of honor for ecclesiastics of the Catholic Church, and especially for members of the benedictine and other religious orders.
