In summary, the Path encouraged people to obey their superiors; to owe fealty to their lords; and to venerate the past, ancestors, former emperors, and the priests who taught and preserved the Path. Past generations were treated as guardians of the Path. Rather conveniently for those in power, it was an easy way for ruling dynasties to gain people's loyalty. It especially benefited the imperial families of Shou Lung, making the Shou emperor as important as the Celestial Emperor himself.
By the Path, the Emperor of Shou Lung was deified after death and granted a new secret name typically that of an animal. The Celestial Emperor ordered the Nine Immortals of the Celestial Empire to each take responsibility for one of the nine cardinal virtues of the Path, and to go among mortals to teach these virtues through example. The Path was exemplified by a number of sages. Despite this single origin and a doctrine literally set in stone, countless interpretations were made of these rules and there were innumerable directions to follow on the Path.
It was said that the way of a monk on the Path was narrow, yet contained many branches before coming to its destination. The differing interpretations Path To Lightless Dawn - Angelscourge - In The Realm Of The Horned (Cassette) dissension and heated debate among the priests, who frequently mustered temple armies of monks and sohei to wipe out those they claimed to be heretics of the faith, leading to bloody fights in the streets of many cities of Shou Lung.
Thus there were over two hundred orders or sects of the Path of Enlightenment, with each insisting it was the so-called True Way. The Shou Lung government recognized around two dozen as "approved" or "official" sects, and the bureaucracy granted these land, money, and imperial support, and in turn the sects sent advisors to the imperial court and thence engaged in politics, religious feuding, and vice. The priests of the Path of Enlightenment, that is, those who guard and teach it, were called "Receivers of Guidance", or, in the Shou languagethe "Shou-ling Tao".
Over the years, this term was simplified to "Shou-ling". In Kozakurathe Path To Lightless Dawn - Angelscourge - In The Realm Of The Horned (Cassette) of Enlightenment was called the "Way of Enlightenment", causing mutual embarrassment back in Shou Lung between the two faiths.
The Shou-ling Tao were the most well-organized religion in Shou Lung. They were also the richest, and welcomed the favor of the Emperor. Abbots, lamas, priests, and monks followed the Path. When humankind first arose from the dust of the Red Earth—the land of Kara-Tur—they were savage, argumentative, and belligerent.
The Celestial Emperor disapproved, and wished for their lives to be a reflection of Heaven, to follow his Path of Enlightenment. To this end, he sent to the Red Earth his emissaries, the Nine Immortals, who would each teach one aspect of the Path and serve as the first emperors of Shou Lung. However, contemporary emperors initially denied these teachings. This advisor became the first Emperor Chin of the Ho Dynasty.
No other faith could be promoted, and the monks and priests of many other faiths were banished from Shou Lung. This triggered the Time of Contentionsin which rival faiths feuded and struggled against one another, among the people and the bureaucracy.
Finally, temple militias waged small civil wars. The grandson, now the second Emperor Chin, ended the Time of Contentions by decreeing the Time of Sharing Mealsoutlawing temple militias but encouraging religious freedoms once more.
Although this effort was less effective in the south, other faiths were accepted again, yet the Path remained the official religion of the empire. Over the next millennium, it grew to become the foremost faith of Kara-Tur. As a part of this, missionary priests of the Path of Enlightenment were sent out to far-flung lands such as Kozakura to establish shrines. The majority of temples in Shou Lung were dedicated to the Path, but fell into two Path To Lightless Dawn - Angelscourge - In The Realm Of The Horned (Cassette).
The first were official temples, with their activities, land grants, and support given to the imperial family monitored by Department of Celestial Supervision. The second were unsanctioned temples, embodying a wide variety of other views; these were smaller but firmly independent. In Kozakurait was one of the two major faiths. The Way of Enlightenment, as it was there known, was considered to be nearly identical to the Path as it was understood in Shou Lung.
It was well organized and drew from the life and speeches of its great teacher to create lessons designed to lead followers to spiritual perfection. It was divided into three main schools: Toro-daiKanchaiand Konjo. In Wathe Path of Enlightenment was the only faith to be formally sanctioned by the government, which otherwise had no state religion. However, the shogunate followed a radical interpretation created by Baiyosho Degiwho held that it was not a spiritual or philosophical pursuit, Path To Lightless Dawn - Angelscourge - In The Realm Of The Horned (Cassette), but a scheme for social order.
Degi saw it as advocating a social hierarchy, with the submission of son to father as a fundamental principle of the universe. The great majority of temples and shrines were dedicated to the Path. In Malatrathe Path of Enlightenment was most commonly followed by the Seng people of the north, who had the most contact with Shou outlanders. Because Appolonia desired the entity too much, the Angelus chose her catatonic mother, Lauren Franchettiinstead.
Soon after, the newly reborn Angelus was fooled into thinking she had finally killed the Darkness after Jackie made a copy of himself. She soon fled with Appolonia to an ancient temple in the Amazon rainforest, where Lauren gave herself completely to the Angelus entity. The Angelus came in contact with the Magdalena, Sister Mariella. The Magdalena was seeking to reforge the Spear of Destinywhich had been shattered during her first encounter with the Darkness.
The fight ended with no clear winner, but the Angelus ordered Appolonia to leave because she was touched too deeply by the Darkness and that should they meet again, she would kill her. The Angelus would once again attempt to kill the Darkness and would also come into conflict with the new Magdalena, Patience. During the fight, Appolonia ran the Angelus through with the Spear of Destiny. The Angelus temporarily takes possession of Patience, but the spirit is forced out of Patience's body by her strong will and benevolence.
During the time the Angelus was Path To Lightless Dawn - Angelscourge - In The Realm Of The Horned (Cassette) a host, her followers sensed that the balance between the light and the dark has been tipped in favor of Jackie Estacado, and had begun preparing for war while the Angelus searched for a new host.
She first takes possession of Velocity but is forced out by members of Cyberforce. She then takes possession of convicted murderer Celestine. Shortly after the birth of Hope Pezzini daughter to Sara Pezzini and Jackiethe Angelus claims her only to have a mystical explosion occur.
After the event, only the Angelus and her foes remain. Celestine and the Angelus co-existed as separate entities, with Celestine able to become the Angelus as needed but retaining her own free will.
Celestine, however, knew that the Angelus did have the ability to subsume her will at any point, but the Angelus chose not to after her encounter with Sara Pezzini's daughter. Celestine later returned to fight Jackie Estacado. While caught in the middle of a fight between the hosts of the Glacier Stone and Ember StoneCelestine is decapitated with the Blood Sword wielded by Jackie Estacado.
The Angelus was once again without a bearer until she came across Finch, friend of Danielle Baptisteand possesses her. During a fight with Sara Pezzini currently hosting the Darkness portion of the Witchblade and corrupted by itshe attempts to kill the bearer of the Angelus portion of The Witchblade, Dani. After emerging victorious or so she believedshe absorbed the remaining half of the Witchblade into her being while still being corrupted.
Sara was on the brink of killing Dani when an Angelus-infested Finch swoops in to save Dani from death, and the Angelus transfers hosts from Finch to Dani.
Strangely, however, Dani is able to resist the Angelus' possessive personality, and instead of killing Sara, she is able to use the powers of the Angelus to purify Sara of the corrupting forces of Darkness. The fact that the Angelus would allow Dani to retain her free will caused come unrest among her followers, particularly her lieutenant, Sabine, who desired for the Angelus to choose her as host.
Sabine later attempted a coup to overthrow Dani and become the new Angelus host. After acquiring the Wheel of Shadows, one of the other 13 Artifacts, Sabine battled Dani, but was defeated. Later, Dani united with other Artifact bearers to combat the Survivor to prevent him from gathering the 13 Artifacts and ending the universe.
They failed, but Jackie Estacado gained the ability to restart the universe and took the opportunity to make a few changes. Following the reboot, Dani was no longer the Angelus.
Instead, the Angelus force had been divided and possessed the various Angelus Warriorscreating a hive mind. The Angelus soon regained its faculties, choosing a new host in Finch, and starting the war with the Darkness anew. While the Angelus takes full control of Finch during battles, it seems to allow her some independence.
