Awakening as a Templar
The belief in God being a wise and merciful savior brings rest to most people... yet to those who thrive in darkness, it brings fear and dismay.
The world remains embroiled in conflict, as the Imposters spread their cursed infection throughout it. While many Imposters wear masks to hide their maniacal faces, they are not nearly thick enough to shield them from the Light of Divinity. As a result to encountering this holy light, many of the Imposters are left with their masks melded like wax upon their faces, hardened and fused to their skin.
The scriptures of God foretold the birth of a warrior who would suppress the Imposters, and bestow a blessing to the accursed. The suppression of such corrupted souls requires an iron will and indomitable spirit, enabling one to face evil while ignoring their own fear of failure.
As the order of the Monks refrained from becoming arrogant despite their growing power, God saw that they deserved a righteous blessing and guidance. And so it was foretold that their day would come, where they would spread like light throughout darkness.
Templar of God, with the power of the Holy Spirit at your disposal, you will bring punishment on the Imposters and become the protector of light to the weak.

Awakening as Justice
'Templars' are god's advocates who have devoted their lives to punishing all imposters. Purposely putting themselves in rigorous training to become stronger, and to serve god's will. But as the number of imposters who died in their hands increased, their grudge and sadness seeped deep into their souls.
"They were once a being just like us... is annihilation really the only answer? How can we say we are different if we just kill endlessly?"
They started to question the very thought they had never a single doubt about, the thought that these people must be exterminated. They become confused and left on a journey to find answers to keep their mind at peace.
As the time passes...
some Templars became more focused on killing the imposters, some became even more enraged, some went through endless meditation and training, and some went out on a pilgrimage to understand the truth of everything.
After a long time, some 'Templars' returned with answers. It is not known what they saw or what path they had gone through. However, this was what said by them.
"We have finally understood god's will, and it has become our justice." The Templars who had returned knowing 'God's Intentions,' were determined and had a clear sense of duty, and they killed without hesitation.
They were truly beings that were willing to do anything for justice. Thus, people started refer to them as 'Justice.' They shall not only be known as god's advocates but people who understand and carry out god's true intentions.
