The Gigerdian Priests of the old Polytheistic Gigerdian Religion, also sometimes referred to as Shamans, were the leaders of the various temples of the religion. They also acted as intermediaries between the believed spiritual world of the gods and the common folk. These religious leaders often entered the sweat lodge on top of their temple to alter themselves into a state of coma, in which they had dreams and visions from the gods.

They also dressed in rather colorful clothes, since in this specific religion it was believed that the gods would be able to recognize the person being able to interact with themm by wearing specifically designed, colorful clothing.
