The Ghinorians are humans who are descendents of a once mighty empire. The Ghinorians believe that they are the chosen people of Mitra, destined to bring justice and law to the world. They are taught an ethos of duty, honor, and charity. Every Ghinorian, from the Princes to the least peasant, is taught this. Because of their love of the law, the Ghinorians are noted for their skills for organization. They bear special enmity against the Thule Empire and other followers of Set for being tyrants and despots.
The negative side of their culture is their sense of righteousness. Ghinorians grudgingly acknowledge the existence of other gods but claims that Mitra is supreme among the deities. The Ghinorians are noted for their ruthlessness in suppressing cultures and mores they believe to be abhorrent.
During the time of the Ghinorian Empire they came to rule many of the Wilderlands cultures. Faced with this the Imperial Prince, supreme ruler of the Empire, favored the doctrine of toleration. That Mitra called the Ghinorians to be an example to other nations. That if one accepted Mitra and her church that person would be considered Ghinorian.
During the waning days of the empire this doctrine was confronted by the rise of orthodoxy which held that only true born Ghinorians were accorded special status by Mitra. The religious and civil strife caused by this issue led to the fall of the empire and continues to divide the Ghinorian successor states to this day.
