Aderyn is said to prize individualism above all else. Elders of his faith teach that it is from one’s relationship with oneself that inspiration for new crafting springs. His cosmic role is inspiration. Aderyn is born of Light energy. Aderians, thus, conceive of their god using the imagery of light. Followers of Aderyn claim to sense his influence via inspirational flashes, which spur new innovations. He is also said to be present in the consistent, spiritual glow that fills one with the lifelong drive to craft and build. Like a light permeates the void of empty space, so do inspiration and drive overcome the cardinal sins of idleness and apathy.
In order to properly foster individualism, Aderians pride themselves on the value of free will, and the ability to follow whichever path one chooses through life. All in all, this keeps Aderians quite satisfied with their daily lives, able to go about them as they choose in peace. However, free will itself is a very chaotic force, because it naturally introduces a measure of disorder to the social environment. Acting in individual interests increases diversity and free variation to society, which is often a source of strife.
Furthermore, their free-will based society, in the times leading up to the Soulfire Crisis, began to value profiteering over both ecological and social balance. An example of this imbalance exists in the illegal, underground slave trade which emerges alongside increased industrialization in the Quarry. Here, individual Aderians are seen to prioritize craft and building above human rights and social justice, undermining Aderyn’s individualistic values in the name of increased production and individual profits.
