Name: Path of Daena
Nickname: Behdins
Parent Road: Via Regalis
Virtues: Conviction, Self-Control

The Path of Daena is a Path of Via Regalis ("Road of Kings") found in V20 Dark Ages. Followers are referred to as Behdins.


The Path of Daena teaches that virtuous acts and adhering to law and duty brings great personal power. By acting in accordance with these laws and their duty, they will be rewarded justly. Laws provide structure for a civil society; break the law, and society itself breaks down. A leader cannot expect productivity without law. The Behdin often attempt to take the higher road and act as goodly as possible, though the law is much more important in their eyes. They will uphold the law to the best of their ability, going so far as to sacrifice themselves in the process.

The ultimate goal of the Behdin is to not only uphold the law, but to become the law. Ultimately, those who rule make the laws, and in the end the Behdin feel they know best which laws create a civil society. While they will fulfill the laws they live under while rising in the ranks, they seek to change the laws to better serve society when they have the power to do so.
