Heretics are people who don't worship the goddess of the landmass they were born on or serve directly under the Basilicom. These people are often looked down upon and often hide in caves around Gamindustri. Heretics are often shown as the silhouette of an old man. Other heretics will join The Guild.
There are two types of Heretics: Moderalists and Extremists.
Moderalists do no more than worship the goddess of their choice while Extremists hate the other goddesses they don't worship. Several times during the game, Extremists are seen attacking the worshippers of the other goddesses, either of their own volition or under Arfoire's command.
