The people of Ethron are dedicated followers of Athena, Goddess of Wisdom. For over four hundred years, a Paladin of Athena has administered the city and the surrounding lands. The temple of Athena has a major presence and plays a central role in administrating the affairs of Ethron. The city has been at peace for many years and over time the citizens have become complacent in their lives. They believe that they are blessed and that this blessing will never be taken away. As such, they have slowly became more debauched and unjust, believing that they can do nothing wrong, and have drifted away from Athena's central tenants.
