As the name suggests, the Spring Prayer is an annual religious ceremony held by the Cathedral in early spring. There is an essential ritual in which the blue priests, accompanied by the shrine maidens, make the land fertile by filling it with their mana. The group travels to different corners of the duchy, hoping that the ritual will have the desired outcome.
While this was already an important measure, Ferdinand went further by bringing Karstedt and Sylvester into the picture and asking them to accompany Myne. With the Spring Prayer approaching, the head priest is determined, more than ever before, that the rituals and other events associated with the annual religious ceremony are done safely, with Myne’s well-being as a priority.
