victory.jpgLike most of the saints of the Imperian Church, Victory was once (and in some places, still is) revered as a goddess in her own right. Appearing as an armored, winged, angelic woman, Victory has a central role in Imperian spiritual beliefs. She is the embodiment and personification of Imperia itself, and Imperia is her chosen nation in the mortal world – or so Imperian theologians once wrote. Now, she is conflated with the deified Empress, and the two occupy similar and sometimes utterly indistinguishable roles in the Imperian Church and society in general.

As the personification of Imperia and its victorious conquests, she is generally depicted as a virtuous warrior. Her favored weapon is the spear.
