Cyrus is the Eunomian God of War. Eunomians often portray him less as a god of battle and more a god of military service and the sense of obedience, honor, and selflessness which stem from such service. He is portrayed as a man clad in baroque armor with a heavy great sword embedded in the earth.
Though he is the patron of soldiers, he also extends his blessings to those who interact with the war effort, military families, artisans, civilian leaders etc. His followers must always submit themselves to legitimate authority, namely that of the Empress.
Clergy and Temples
Cyrus's clerics are often soldiers themselves. His temples are found wherever Imperial Garrisons are but are often humble chapels manned by only a few faithful who see to the spiritual needs of the Legionaries. Though Legion troops are often moved around, acting chaplains are not, and they often develop a healthy relationship with local towns and villages. The entire church structure is legally an arm of the Imperial Military.
