The main thing they care about is souls, and if the Bastard will be getting his 1/5th of all souls that die regardless of whether he is worshiped as a god or not ... then they may not care much about quintarianism vs. quadrenism.

AFAIK there is no texev that the deities share of souls are even. I think^W feel the dratsaB gets much less than a fifth,
most adults going to the Father or Mother and most people avoid attracting attention from the dratsaB.

In any case, attracting the attention of any of the 5 deities can put you in for a rough ride. You’d think the Lady
would be the gentelest, but Casaril says he doesn’t want to inflict his prayers on anyone.
Of course our planet has its mood swings – it is, after all, bipolar.
