The Luminous Body is a monastic order in the South whose agents, the Decadents, are unmistakable for their elaborate and unweildly appearance.

The Luminous Body take Nyue’s characterization as existence quite literally. To them, she is the material world itself, and to be close to Nyue—to rise above the undifferentiated texture of the unenlightened—is to amass as much material wealth as possible. Avarice as doctrine.
