I didn't say they worship Argan Argar. I suggested they had a magic that was _similar_ to that of the Nightcult through the "unnamed darkness demon". Considering that even the Heortlings were considered Kitori at the Dawn, I doubt any debate about the Kitori nature of the Aramits will be productive.
