Nothing is more sacred than an oath; it does not matter how grandiose, or how minuscule. The Keepers exist for the purpose of enforcing oaths.
Many people make an oath in the presence of a Keeper in order to express their unwavering dedication to fulfilling that oath. It may take the form of a business contract or a vow between two lovers. No matter the oath, it is not to be taken lightly.
It is said that those suffering from heavy souls may seek out a Keeper with the hopes of relieving their suffering. Such pilgrims may be granted the opportunity to make sacred vows; keeping a vow is said to bring peace to the soul while breaking one increases the weight of a soul’s shackles.
