The Kryptonian Religious Guild is one of the major guild houses of the planet Krypton, albeit the one of least reknown. Devout members of the guild worshiped Rao, a deity who was analagous to Krypton's red sun (also named Rao). The heralds of Rao were the Kryptonian equivilant to angels with names such as Cythonna and Yuda. The guild was symbolized by the sigil of the Flamebird - a mythical creature that was half-phoenix and half-dragon. Priests of Rao garbed themselves in flowing dark robes and obscured their faces with glowing featurless masks.
A Kryptonian named Thara Ak-Var was chosen to join the guild after a series of recurring dreams in which she visited upon by the spiritual essence of the Flamebird. She eventually left the guild to become the security chief for the New Kryptonian defense council, an adjunct division of the Kryptonian Military Guild.
The original religious guild was destroyed when the planet Krypton exploded, but they, along with the other guild houses, re-established themselves on the planetoid known as New Krypton. The religious guild had very little impact on the early days of New Krypton's colonization.
