"We were molded from dirt, by Her hand. And as we were created, so shall we return to Her. Bury us in the ash of our forefathers, and you will see us in flames."
― Excerpt from the Book of Fire, First Perdition[1]

The Dust Mother is a deity worshipped by Cascadians. She has at least one holy book associated with Her religion, titled the Book of Fire, First Perdition.[1]

Behind the scenes

Cut dialogue in Mission 20 would have established that the Dust Mother religion had priests and involved "meeting our Dust Mother in Her heart" as some sort of afterlife.

While examining fanart of the Dust Mother in a halter dress attached to a cloak and wearing a veil with a halo, Matthew Nguyen claimed it strikingly resembled the deity's actual canon appearance.[2]


The belief about man being "molded from dirt" and his inevitable fate of returning to the dust seems to have its origin in the Book of Genesis (3:19):

"By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return". [3]

This is further established when a Cascadian marine during Magadan Front utters to herself: "From Dust I came...and to Dust I shall return."

Based on the mentions of "God" by Cascadians, it would appear that the Dust Mother religion is a merging of another mainstream religion like Christianity with another new one.
