Specialty Priests of Aerolus call themselves Leolians, they wear pale blue flowing robes and favor headbands and jewelry with sapphires, bright blue star sapphires and other transparent blue stones.  In fact, the holy relic of Aerolus is a Star Sapphire shaped like a small egg. The Holy Symbol of the Leolians is usually a pendant with an oval star sapphire. It is a religion that favors a greater good, and beliefs that, by their nature, any laws that don't favor the greater good are not laws.  Leolians never pay taxes, and can expect to get sprung from jail if they are jailed for it.
Relationships with Other Priesthoods:  The Leolians and the Silken Hand of Destiny (followers of Mercurious) loathe each other, but both will tend to resort to manipulation of a legal system to fight each other over physical combat. Leolians are one of the only groups of clerics that don’t kiss up to followers of Denarus, as they see money as an unimportant distraction from reality.
