|NAME: Cara Soriano|
AGE: 25 (July 15th)
|When one first thinks 'Satanist' the image that comes to mind is rarely of a sun-tanned young beach bunny. Cara would suggest that is because most people have no real clue about Satanism as a religion, or the off-shoot of Setianism that she belongs to. That, however, doesn't mean she has any interest in sharing her thoughts of the subject or converting people. It's not the way of their church.|
Cara's firmest belief is that the world requires inevitable chaos and destruction in order to survive and grow. Stagnation is the worst thing in the world to her and if you stop moving forward you may as well be dead.
Her highest duty is to Set and then to herself. She believes that each person needs to put themself before the needs of anyone else and she happily does so. This can mean she comes off as a bitch to some but she doesn't really care about the opinions of others. She's very forward and sometimes a little callous, but her hedonistic and outgoing nature means she's a lot of fun to hang out with if you prove yourself to not be an idiot. Cara has little time for idiocy or weak-willed individuals.
Her loyalty to Set is absolute and she has been raised in the knowledge that she will live in servitude to him. She doesn't see this as a burden at all. To get to serve the God is a complete gift. She will defend his words and actions to anyone and if you speak poorly of him she might just punch you in the face - if you're mortal. She's not going to try and mess with other gods. She's brighter than that. (That doesn't, however, mean she's learned how to keep her mouth shut when encountering other Gods. She's as snarky and condescending to them as to any mere mortal.)
She loves the deserts almost as much as she loves hot sunny days on the beach, and she'll take any opportunity to go surfing or swimming.
|In 1975 members of the Church of Satan split away from it, citing disagreements with the founder on administrative and philosophical grounds, as well as the corruption they saw within the church. From there they founded the Temple of Set in California, installing the Egyptian god Set as their figurehead. (Unlike the Church of Satan who hold no literal belief in Satan, Setians do hold a belief in Set as a true entity.)|
It was in that same year that the God himself appeared to the Ipsissimus and Magus (the highest Degrees) and began to shift their vision of the world. (The Californian temple is the only one, however, that has had actual contact with Set and they keep this amongst themselves and secret to those who have passed a certain Degree within the church.)
Since the year of Set's glorious appearance to his people, Ipsissimus James Soriano has been responsible as a go-between for the Setians and their god, and he has served long and well, but now the time is coming for him to step down by his own choice. It was assumed that the role would be taken by one of the highest degrees but his choice of replacement has shocked and pissed off a lot of people.
You see, the Temple of Set has a very strong policy that their religious beliefs are not to be forced upon children and only those over the age of eighteen may be allowed to join their ranks. Despite this, James' daughter Cara has known of Set's existence since she was old enough to understand it, and not only that but she has known that it would one day be her duty to follow in her father's footsteps and be the emissary to the god. James has been preparing her for this duty since she hit her early teens and she has been well taught by her father in how best to serve the God.
And now, despite the fact that Cara is only twenty-four (a member of the church for only six years) she has been given the most coveted position the Californian temple can give and she plans to make the very most of it and serve Set as he deserves.
