Uszarothian religion is very similar to Jamzezism, though they revere Uszaroth as the main leader for being a rebel. However, there is a significantly greater focus on playing pranks, while Jamzezists tend to be more conservative. Uszarothians are sometimes considered a nuisance in Vaikan society, but are considered by many to be "vanilla" Vaikan who are cherished for not following a strict set of rules.
Uszarothians tend to be highly creative in their works, because they believe they are not meant to be bound by laws. While the religion is still frowned upon to some degree, Uszarothians have had a major influence in shaping Vaikan society to what it is today.

One religion worships dragon-like angels of death known as the Dhragolon. It is believed that the Dhragolon were the wisest and most powerful beings in the universe and that they would destroy all those that violated their commandments. At the end of time, they would have destroyed all evil leaving only beings of pure goodness. While the Dhragolon are regarded as beings too terrible and powerful to exist, many Titanologists argue for the plausibility of their existence.

The people of Codgle has their own religion. Today, it is no longer an active religion, but it has become a major subject for Vaikan historians and artists.
The people of Codgele believed that the gods inhabited the bodies of felines, specifically the Dunecat. They were ruled by an enormous Dunecat by the name of Rhuuz-tih, the Cat Pharaoh and god of earth. This Cat Pharaoh was seen as a god-leader and was believed to be about the size of a mountain. Today, legend holds that he hides among the Yolpika Mountains camouflaged as a mountain itself.
The Ancient Codgele people believed that using his enormous strength, Rhuuz-tih shaped the Yolpika Mountains into what they are today. Upon getting angry at mortals for their disobedience, his fury scorched the land turning into a desert and the mountains into volcanoes. Soon, Rhuuz-tih regretted his own actions and his tears created the River Elin. However, the ashes left behind by the firestorms brought a new era prosperity. The ashes from the fires allowed for centuries of successfully crop harvests.
