Oh come now, there's a perfectly good precedent for this - "Vampires are required to rest in the soil of their Homeland" (or has that vanished in the Anne Rice/Word of Dimness era? Too bad, Dracula was the greatest Vam,pire story ever written, and so takes precedence over Anny-come-latelies! So there. PBppbpbpbpbp :-p ).
Frankly, I don't know why anyone would *actively* worship a City god unless they plan on achieving municipal authority. I would make Pavis (/all City Gods) a Guardian Entity (Sort of like KeroFin or Moosehorn Spur - the worship needed would probably be the dominant worship of the region, unless there is a good reason for it to be different, so Pavis might be an animist entity, or, because of his foreign nature, a Theistic one), with a small dedicated sect that actively worships him - and from which the city officials are drawn. A Devotee of Pavis would then be a person on the "Fast track" to become Mayor, Chief of Police, or Overseer of Trade (at least, he would be, if the Lunars hadn't stepped in...).
But I *really* don't want to get sucked into this quagmire!
It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
