So druids. They are basically paladins of philosophy under a certain understanding. The natural world is a certain way, therefore there is an appropriate way to live and ideals to strive for. I've been thinking about what other worldviews druids might hold, and how they might go about presenting them:
WHITE: The Perfect Circle
Nature is simple, in its purest form. Time and corruption has complicated it. Purging the world of its mutants and mechanisms will return it to the ideal.
Part Luddite, part medium, part math savant
Usually on a purging mission. Focused on their purpose.
Allies: earth elementals, ghosts, angelic architects on early creation, snakes, crystals, modrons
Abilities: alkali touch, posterize, disenchant, abstractify form, devolve
Appearance: simple, even low-poly garb, symmetry, geometric mandalas, eager to debate principles
Names: the higher the rank, the fewer sides. Twelve-Sided Chua, Keme the Heptagonic
BLUE: The Empty Circle

The truth is that this world is an illusion. Only through the power of intellect will one be in harmony with it.
Part Zen monk, part Loki, part Neo, part 4chan
Speaks in riddles and lies. This is supposed to lead the worthy to a deeper understanding.
Allies: pixies, magpies, foglings, tanuki, Enitharmon
Abilities: Naruto-style clones, wuxia jumps, alter appearance, disguise animal, maze
Appearance: obscured faces or masks, affected accents, nondescript looks beneath garish disguises, minimalists
Names: Usually a number of chosen aliases. Unknown Joshua, Riddlefist, and Master Nameless are likely one individual
