This agricultural planet is settled by The Children of the Covenant, a splinter religious sect, and is the religious movement's central headquarters.
Founded on Terra, the sect prohibits the use of advanced technology for manufacturing and agriculture. Advanced machinery for agriculture and manufacturing is forbidden on Devotion, as are advanced measuring devices. The craftsmen among the Children seem be preternaturally patient and precise in their work with handcrafts, capable of microprecise manipulation impossible for most Humans.
Children of the Covenant Guiders.
The religious movement sends missionaries, called Guiders, as representatives to Human and alien civilizations throughout the known galaxy The Children of the Covenant believe Humans were the "First Created" and therefore have a responsibility to teach wisdom to all other races. This somewhat condescending attitude makes them somewhat unpopular with non-Humans.
