The conniving faithful insinuate themselves so easily into positions of quiet power that any public office in any nation can claim to have been held at one point or another. His faithful work quietly and tirelessly behind the scenes, rarely forming large churches or cults but rather creating a small network of trusted conspirators. They detest the chaos caused by outright rebellion or bloody conquest and prefer to change any system from within, unobtrusively altering the rules to their benefit. Their touch is subtle: new tax laws that favor corrupt business practices, reinterpretations of old precedents to free nonviolent criminals, or impossibly complicated legal wording.
