Clerics are as diverse a class as the pantheon of the realm, united only in their service to their deity. They draw their powers from their god/dess and must serve that patron's cause, or they may lose those powers as they lose favor with the deity. They spend much of their time in prayer and meditation to gain their spells, and to attempt to discern what their god/dess expects of them. Their insight and use of their wisdom grows as they spend their lives learning to understand people and their god/dess' teachings, and apply them to day to day life and furthering their cause, which includes attempting to convert others to their faith.
