HistoryEdit

Simon Kroeger founded the One Star Faith.

In 2801, on the world of Graceland, belonging to the Tamar Pact, Simong Kroeger, then a wealthy trader,claimed to have experienced a religious revelation upon staring through a neighbour's telescope, stating that instead of seeing: [1] [2]

Myriad stars awash in the sea of black space, I saw instead a single star. This one star burned blue with purity. About this truthful star was a world, and about this world, so green and inviting, were the long abandoned ships of General Kerensky.[1]

Word of Kroeger's vision soon spread, many considering him to be a prophet against his wishes. The increasing number of converts soon led an unsympathetic nobleman forcing Kroeger and his followers to leave Graceland, triggering the group to begin a pilgrimage through the Lyran Commonwealth searching for the One Star, a system with a world they believed would be Paradise. Though only spending a brief time on each world visited, Kroeger's fame spread, eventually spawning a whole religion.[1] [2]

The Faith continued after Kroeger's death.
