Beliefs and SocietyEdit
Rooted in Ismailism, a branch of Shia Islam, Druze beliefs incorporate elements from Abrahamic religions as well as Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, Pythagoreanism, and other philosophies, creating a distinct theology known to esoterically interpret religious scriptures and to highlight the role of the mind and truthfulness. The Druze call themselves Ahl al-Tawhid "the People of Monotheism" or "the People of Unity" or al-Muwaḥḥidūn "the Unitarians". The Druze community played an important role in shaping the history of the Levant, particularly Lebanon. The Druze's social customs differ markedly from those of Muslims or Christians and they are known to form a close knit and cohesive social community but also integrate fully in their adopted homelands.
Post Ascent DruzeEdit
In order to live as a non-persecuted group, the Druze elected to immigrate as soon as the could. Because they were one of the first groups to leave during the Second Exodus, the Druze had a good selection for their new home system. They chose the Kepler 62 system and settled Kepler 62f. (renamed to Muwaḥḥidūn "the Unitarians”)
Today they are a thriving society within the Union
