I am not sure what the religion or religions there are in the novel in progress. Part of it takes place in the real world, so all the real world religions are present. But I am pretty sure my main character doesn’t subscribe to any of them.
I am not even sure if he has anything I would recognize as a religion. That is, complete with a god(s) and someway to pray. When I started the novel in progress, I had some vague idea about ancestor worship. I’ve solidified that some and Halloween (no, that’s not what I call it!) is a major festival. But though are ceremonies, there are no prayers or a deity of any sort, and it seems to me all religions involve a deity at some level. I don’t think they have a religion of their very own. But they are also a conquered people (though they don’t know it!) and many of them follow the religion(s) of their conquerors.
They make up many of my minor characters, and I’ve no clear idea of their religion. Besides, the MC was raised by them and religion would have been a part of his young life. Their beliefs would have left some mark on him.
There are two different ones, either two different religions or two versions of the same religion, I am not sure which. Stone is important to one, trees are important to the other. All I know is there is a priesthood. They play a role in the story, and right now I am pretty sure they don’t enter the book until the end.
I don’t know how to go about figuring out what the religion(s) is. I am not sure how important it is to the story (only a little probably!) but not knowing is driving me crazy.
