Humanism

“Humanists are philosophers who believe in the basic good of all humans. Focusing on the pinnacles of humanity rather than the dregs, Humanists examine the human mind to determine how best to improve it. They are willing to go to any lengths to help protect allies and humanity in general; their altruism is founded on a powerful belief in Humanities unlimited potential. In a battle, Humanists focus more on assisting their comrades and helping them reach their highest potential rather than actually attacking”.
