Relating to Ancient Saxon Religious beliefs, ''Seaxneat'' was the name given to The Guardian of The Saxon Peoples. The very name ''Seax'' (a type of Medieval Knife common to Norse and related Cultures), was used as the means that The God would used to protect ''His'' People. ''Seaxneat'' had no overt ''supernatural'' abilities and was portrayed (when done) as a ''Human, Male Warrior''. Some Historians assign the Class of ''Sword Companion'' to Seaxneat. Early English Medieval Royalty (in particular The Kings of Essex), worshiped Seaxneat (6th Century AD) before Christian conversion.
