- —Richelieu about the True Cult
The True Cult, true name unknown, is an enigmatic, shadowy cabal centered on the worship of Death.

It is said that the True Cult does not exist in a way mortals can comprehend and that is singular goal is the end of all things as it influences the worlds in the Cosmos for the Second Coming of Death.
