Other independent reverences are the Emperor's Cousin (think Blue Moon) and perhaps the Goddess's daughter (if the sole mention of her wasn't the result of sloppy writing).

They are Lunars so they would have Lunar Magic like all the other radiances. In ILH-1, there is a tale about her involvement in the development of New Pelorian and I feel that her cults would have Carmanian and Pelandan influences as well as Darsenite.

The Fereshori are in the Lunar Army radiance and there's no connection between them and the Great Sister in ILH-2.

HonEel has her own radiance and isn't responsible to the Great Sister, but rather her father, Moonson while Maran Gor is too remote to have an influence in Peloria.
