The Order of Flagellants and Austerities, is one of the religious cults of the Ninth World. They were once a closed monkish branch of the Order of Truth called the Scourges. A change in leadership lead them to become a mendicant order, dedicated to the task of cleansing the world of what they consider as sins. They believed in the somewhat perfection of the 'pure' human, rejecting the Numenera and everything that can improve the flesh and that was not granted with birth.
They act only in group, attacking with rage anybody who dare oppose their views.
