Cattine priestesses often wander from village to village, or they act as a local representative for a small group a cattine in a town or city not of cattine origin. They are ambassadors for the cattine ensuring piece for cattine in an area. The enforce cattine social laws in remote areas where a specific village is not present, but a few cattine are. In their travels they bring back information to the few cattine villages on the world abroad and the conditions and number of other villages.
Cattine priestesses are among the few cattine who wear any form of clothing preferring simple light green robes and a small scepter representing their faith. They are diplomats, the ones the cattine look to for guidance from day to day life, and for strength in a crisis. When a high priestess in not around, then it is up the priestess to take charge and maintain order.
Cattine priestesses are chosen when they are young and raised, virtually from birth, to rule. They are trained by other priestesses and by the high priestess of the village. Once they have reached a certain level in their training they are sent out into the world to learn. Some times they are sent out on a quest to reach another village, travelling alone or with another priestess. What ever the reason for venturing forth they strive to reach the level where they may someday become a high priestess. To be worthy of the title and the responsibility that comes with that rank. They are bread to be diplomatic, caring, to never show fear, to inspire strength in others, and to care for the welfare of their fellow cattine. When the times are at their worst, they must be, or appear, to be at their best and strongest.
