The Church of the Cleansing Wind is a cult and gang started by the Godborn Sigmund in Las Vegas in 1994, in an effort to increase his own Legend in an effort to cause the opening of the Reliquary. When he and his fellow Godborns took over the West Slums of the city, they established their power base there. Their belief system was based on the need to purge corruption, evil and greed, no matter the cost, and that their very Souls are destined to fight against evil forever. Sigmund's practice of Soulbinding the Souls of fallen cult members to inanimate objects furthered this belief.
