Orthodox Catholic Church
Loyal To Portland Protective Association

The Orthodox Catholic Church was a creation of Norman Arminger after he became Lord Protector of Portland. He located a Catholic bishop who had been driven insane by being a captive of cannibals. Arminger arranged to have him elected as Pope Leo by other bishops. Arminger used the Orthodox Catholic Church to help control the Portland Protective Association.

After contact was established with the surviving Catholic Church in Italy, the Orthodox Catholic Church was declared schismatic. Sandra Arminger instructed Tiphaine Rutherton to kill Rule in a manner that make his death appear natural.
