Revered mothers are mothers of the Andrastian Chantry who have been put in charge of a particular chantry. Revered mothers are responsible for administering the spiritual well-being of their flock. They are senior members of the clergy, just below grand clerics in rank.[1]

Role[]

Chantries deliver practical services to the community, caring for the sick and collecting alms for the poor. The Chantry provides hospitality to travelers and a public network of communications. A mother or revered mother is addressed as "Your Reverence." They can officiate wedding ceremonies and legalize marriages, they can ask for donations to their local Chantry and can demand tithes on estates in regions where they hold political influence.[2] Should an illiterate commoner need to send word to another town, Revered mothers can write and send letters on their behalf.

Since the Chantry controls the lyrium trade on the surface in all Southern Andrastian nations, the Chantry is the only legal way to obtain lyrium. Chantry mothers are the primary dispensers of lyrium to the Templar Order.
