Celeste is one of the faiths practiced in After the End. Celeste is part of the Christian religious group, and is considered a heresy of the Apostolic faith.
"Far from the yoke of Sao Paulo, the gaúchos of the pampas have drifted away from the rigid dogma of the Empire. Emergent messianic practices are preached by mystical monks who claim to be reincarnations of previous figures, chief among them the "Christ-Woman" Jacobina. These mystical practices, combined with their egalitarianism and rejection of the material world has made them be seen as heretics by most Apostolics." In-game description of Celeste
