You could also have a Robin Hood type saint accepted by a fringe Malkioni sect. They'd be heretics to the Rokari church. Of course not all followers manage to live up to the ideal of robbing the rich to help the poor.

I think there ought to be some socially positive aspect to a thief's saint. Otherwise the followers can't justify their behaviour.
