Ammachi, called “Amma”, is a kind and beloved spirit who watches over the downtrodden. While Amma has little power, her comforting presence and good works draw many followers. Those who find themselves in a bad way tend to find their way to a House of Ammachi. It is said that no one in the Commonwealth dies alone because Amma will be there with them, and death is often refered to as “Amma’s Embrace”.
It is said that when Ammachi lived, she was a human woman devoted to helping the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying. When she died, her will to continue her work was so strong that she remained as a spirit.
Amma is controversial among some members of the church, particularily followers of Eidar. While churchmen respect the good work that she does, some argue that she is a poor example because Amma chose to continue her work in Haven rather than continue on to the Great Battle.
