History and background[edit]

Hakukuk was originally colonised by a breakaway sect of the Church of Forever Sabbath. Of its original doctrines only two have survived, the Sacrament of Blood Letting and the Touch of Sin. Faithful followers, known as the "Chosen", believe that a person’s Soul flows in their blood. As an act of repentance, and in order to seek forgiveness from Church, they are required to give of their blood, usually about a bowlful, each sacrament.

This means that the "Chosen" will not allow blood transplants without knowledge of its origins. The donor must be a member of the church and in good standing. The donation must have been taken immediately after sacrament and a Pastor must confirm these facts in writing. In reality, since most faithful are already severely anemic, few donate blood.

The Touch of Sin is the doctrine that all non-followers of the church are unclean and can taint the faithful with their sin merely by being in their presence. This has resulted in a caste system. Non-followers and visitors are forbidden to enter into the presence of a "Chosen" except by undergoing ritual cleansing which results in the loss of about a litre of blood. If the cleansed then communicates (even by radio) or meets an unclean they are required to undergo the full ritual once more.

This doctrine has resulted in an almost total trade embargo to and from the planet.
