The Tenkou Courts see the spirit world as both a mirror to and above the mortal world. They interact with spirits, but there is a strict hierarchy in all aspects of their life, with spirits considered separate and above them. Their culture mirrors the japanese or chinese idea of spirits. No gods to be worshipped, but spirits to ask for assistance, except this time, you ask in the way you might ask someone who is higher in station than you. They are more likely to help because of the idea that the people under them aren't just serving, but they are their responsibility.
 
 
 
 
Samar are sort of… Native American, I guess. Folk beliefs in spirits as guides and mentors, and the great big (and dead) tree god is a major deity to them. They have a tradition of spirit-quests in the wilderness, coming back with a pacted spirit.

Faloran Doctrine

The primary interpretation of the world's cosmology is either directly Faloran Doctrine, or is at least inspired by it.

According to Faloran Doctrine, the world was dry and empty of magic, an uncivilized and barbaric place, until the First Spirit plunged his fist into the world, creating a breach between the Realm of Man and the Realm of Spirit. He gifted magic and spirit lore to the Faloran tribes, who united under the First Spirit himself and heard his teachings and embraced his divinity. The First Spirit beseeched the Falorans to propogate and spread the knowledge of magic across the world, with the intention of establishing rigid spirit families and hierarchies, guided by Man, and in turn, guiding Man.

Radiance was the first such Archon - a patron of a vast network of spirits and humans. He became the paragon of the Falorans who migrated north from the ancient homeland of the Falorans.
