Judges are always led by women who never leave their stronghold in the Grainway. The Judges believe that the Shiva Virus was a plague that God designed to cleanse humanity of sin. Apparently God missed a few spots and needs a little extra help, so they’re his divine clean-up crew. They kill everyone who isn’t virtuous, claiming that they’re saving the world for those who are worthy. They also think mutants and clones are inherently evil. Sometimes you’ll meet Judges who’d rather talk to you than stab you, but don’t trust them.
