The Temple Wars were long before my appearance on the bark. But from the archives I learnt that Tryton had warned that the total victory of one of the sides during the wars would lead to the destruction of Atys and of all of hominity. That was the reason why he appealed to his followers to support the inferior side in order to keep the balance. That may contradict a strictly pacifist stance, one neither of the religions ever took.
