Sarkicism (derived from the Greek σάρξ, or “flesh”) is a religious/philosophical system that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs, and spiritual practices largely based on teachings attributed to “Grand Karcist Ion”, its deified founder.
Adherents practice ritual cannibalism, human sacrifice, corporeal augmentation, thaumaturgy, dimensional manipulation, and the formation of pacts with otherworldly entities.
Most Proto-Sarkic sects believe that Ion has achieved or is in the process of achieving apotheosis and, upon the completion of his metamorphosis, will destroy this "flawed, stillborn" universe and remake it into a paradise known as the “”, where the many will at long last know salvation and joy "beneath rose-colored skies".
Though other sects have been discovered that believe that Ion is dead, having martyred himself to protect humanity from the machinations of the gods.

Proto-Sarkic cults tend to be found in insular communities throughout Eurasia's most isolated regions, its followers generally poor (if self-reliant), humble, and hostile towards outsiders.
The will to power is the primary driving force of man.
The individual seeks to master all things within its domain, exerting the direction of power (efficacy) while other individuals do the same, often in opposition.
Organic manipulation has allowed certain Sarkicites to achieve anomalous states of being, transcending the physical limitations of baseline humans.
