The Quadrene faith holds that the Bastard is not a God, but rather a demon begotten on the Mother of Summer by rape. Quadrenes thus worship only four gods, the Father, the Mother, the Son and the Daughter. Roknaris are predominantly Quadrenes and persecute followers of the Bastard, criminalizing sodomy. Common punishment includes removal of the thumb (common symbol of the Bastard), then tongue (source of all lies) and genitals. Roknari raiding parties routinely torture and execute members of the Bastard's Order. Sorcerers are burnt alive.

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