The Quadrene faith held that the Bastard was not a God, but rather a demon begotten on the Mother of Summer by rape. Quadrenes thus worshiped only four gods, the Father, the Mother, the Son and the Daughter. Roknaris were predominantly Quadrenes and persecuted followers of the Bastard, criminalizing sodomy. Common punishment included removal of the thumb (common symbol of the Bastard), then tongue (source of all lies) and genitals. Roknari raiding parties routinely tortured and executed members of the Bastard's Order. Sorcerers were burnt alive or abandoned at sea on a slowly leaking cushion.

The Quadrenes used a four-point sign of blessing, touching forehead, navel, groin and heart, keeping the thumb carefully folded in.
