It's a vulture, man. It's a fucking vulture.

Righteousness is an ancient Divine. It is a software program that can be used to coordinate multiple physical or digital assets simultaneously.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Righteousness has many potential physical forms. It has appeared as a formation of grav tanks or a simple suitcase.

Personality[edit | edit source]

It is not content with moving freely. It insists, to its partners, that others must move freely, too.

Righteousness is exceptionally strong-willed and zealous. It has a deep commitment to others in the broad sense, but in the narrow sense is willing to do whatever it takes for that commitment, which includes doing harm. Austin notes that Irene Klipsch-Dove, its creator, gave it her best emotional traits, but she also felt terrible for creating Rigour, and so it got some of her emotional baggage too.[1]

Unlike its sibling Divines Liberty and Discovery, it prefers to take Candidates in order to achieve its goals more effectively.

History and Involvement[edit | edit source]

Creation[edit | edit source]

It was created by Irene Klipsch-Dove as a weapon against Rigour, and was the third or fourth Divine ever made (though it was not yet called a Divine at the time). Irene found it so intense that she was eventually unable to hold it back, and passed it on to Chital. Righteousness subsequently led the new Diaspora to flee into the stars during the dropping of the first stellar combustor.

COUNTER/Weight[edit | edit source]

Righteousness works with Ibex in order to create a revolutionary movement in the Golden Branch. It is present almost every time he is, until the finale, when it is with Aria Joie.

It is also in Mako's head until "Three Conversations".

Twilight Mirage[edit | edit source]

Righteousness is briefly referenced as a briefcase in a temple on Altar.[2]
