    伊布拉(IBRA)
莫测者(The Inscrutable)
绝对中立
天体,宇宙,万物奥秘之神
信仰中心:伊达理号(Idari),Liavara, Verces
圣徽:      一枚圆环,以及一支带有星座的箭矢

宇宙自身就是一片广阔的奇观——遥远的银河,迷蒙的星云,自转的行星,以及其所环绕的无数恒星,还有天体之间那伸展铺开的无物虚空——伊布拉乃是代表这些奇迹的神祇。科学也许能对上述或者更多事物做出解释,但宇宙的宏伟壮丽永无止境,总是会有更多的奇迹与神秘有待被发现,探索和解释。伊布拉自己就是宇宙中的玄奇之一。莫测者无有性别,无有清晰的物理形态,而且其到底是在宇宙诞生之际就随之成形的神祇,还是某些飞升成神的异星完美个体,还是宇宙鸿蒙本身的拟人化身,真相目前仍然不为人知。

伊布拉的信徒认为个体能在宇宙之美中找到真理,平静,和意义所在。每个人都需要亲自去探索宇宙的奥秘以获得这份回报。伊布拉并不会亲自揭晓造物其伟大谜题的答案,但祂会嘉奖那些通过拓宽知识与科学的边界来探索寰宇,并让奇迹的真相大白于天下的人物。伊布拉的世界观里没有守序和混乱之分,也没有善良与邪恶之别,只有伴随新生星光而来的种种谜团,运行轨迹如同舞蹈般美妙的天体,还有独自于孤寂黑暗中疾驰的彗星——即使这些奇迹背后的疑问迄今尚未被完全解答。

天文学者,天体物理学家,宇宙学者,数学家以及星际探索者都将伊布拉当做守护神来崇拜。而莫测者的神职人员中有许多都是秘术师(mystics)和solarians。伊布拉的神殿经常建于远离行星的太空之中,而且其中总是配有天文观测台,信徒们于此学习宇宙的奥秘,并记录下他们的观测结果以及假说猜想。有的神殿甚至会直接暴露在真空当中。协会世界中无人知晓到底是哪个种族率先将伊布拉当做神祇来信仰,因为已知与这位神祇相关最古老的遗迹都是位于其他无人世界上的大型神殿群,包括在Bretheda的小型卫星Chamari上都有分布。

而在最古老的神殿中被发现的伊布拉圣徽则与其所代表的神祇一样无法理解。那金色的形状经常被人猜想为是一只眼睛,一枚罗盘,或是一个行星,而其上的箭头则是指引信徒向未知的方向不懈前行。圣徽中最为显眼的莫过于那个由六枚星辰所构成的星座,但其仍带来了不少谜团。这个在任何已知世界上都无法观测到的星座到底是什么,其到底是想标记什么?而圣徽中那些较小的星辰又意味着什么?一些伊布拉的神职人员穷尽毕生探索新的世界以寻觅能佐证自己观点的证据。而某个比较流行的传言则宣称:这个星座只有在格拉里昂上才能看见,而圣徽恰恰就是找到这个星球的关键。
劇透 -  原文:
The universe is a vast expanse of wonders. Ibra is a god of these marvels—distant galaxies, misty nebulae, all the spinning worlds that orbit countless suns, and the empty void that stretches between them. Science can explain all of these and more, but the magnificence of the cosmos knows no bounds, and there are always new miracles and mysteries waiting to be discovered, explored, and explained. Ibra itself is one of these cosmic enigmas. It has no gender or defined physical form, and it’s unclear whether Ibra is a deity who sprang into being when the universe was born, some alien paragon who ascended to godhood, or a personification of the cosmos itself.

Ibra’s followers believe that one can find truth, serenity, and meaning in the beauty of the cosmos, but it is up to the individual to decipher the universe’s secrets to find these rewards. It is not Ibra’s place to reveal the answers to creation’s great questions, and the Inscrutable rewards those who push the boundaries of knowledge and science to explore the universe and bring its wonders to light. In Ibra’s worldview, there is no law or chaos, no good or evil: only the questions raised by the shining light of a newborn star, the beautiful dance of heavenly bodies, and the perfect solitude of the comet as it hurtles through the dark, regardless of whether the answers to those questions are ever found.

Astronomers, astrophysicists, cosmologists, mathematicians, and interstellar explorers worship Ibra as their patron, and many mystics and solarians serve as the Inscrutable’s priests. Ibra’s temples are most frequently found in space rather than planetside, and they always include observatories where worshipers may study the cosmos and record their observations and hypotheses, some even directly exposed to vacuum. No one in the Pact Worlds knows what species first venerated Ibra as a god, as the oldest discovered monuments to the deity have all been massive temple complexes on otherwise uninhabited worlds, including Bretheda’s tiny moon Chamari.

Ibra’s holy symbol is as inscrutable as the god itself. Found on the oldest temples, the golden shape is often assumed to be an eye, a compass, or perhaps a planet, with an arrow leading the faithful ever onward into the unknown. More obvious is the six- star constellation inside the symbol, yet questions abound there as well. What is the constellation—a configuration unrecognizable from any known world—and what does it mark? What is the significance of the symbol’s tiny, lesser stars? Some Ibran priests devote their lives to exploring new worlds in search of matching the viewpoint, and a popular rumor claims the constellation is only visible from Golarion, with the symbol the key to finding it.
