Saran


IC - IN CHARACTER - KNOWLEDGE

Theme: God of Death, Sleep and Twilight.

Symbol: raven
Holy Plant: snyrelisk, foxglove (representing death in all its beauty)
Colours: black, grey and purple
Temples: Tortoise Mountains

"Come to me my child, do not be afraid! You are lost to the world, and the twilight scares you now, but it will not be so for long. Come, take my hand and shed your last pain, and I will guide you on your last path."

No longer feel I paralyzed when I hear his voice, and my pain and fear are gone, left behind in a world that matters no longer to me. His voice guides me, and my spirit follows eagerly, for he will never lead me astray.

I believe I can see his grey shape, illuminated by the lack of shadow around him, yet I cannot determine his true shape, but it matters not, for in death we are all equal.


OOC - OUT OF CHARACTER - KNOWLEDGE

Saran is one of the major gods. He was created by AO when the world was still young. His task was to collect and guide the souls of those who were lost in death. And for eons he did not really bother with the struggle on the face of the world, but he concentrated only on the task given to him, without regard of how the people had died.

Then it happened, that Asgoth, who had led a number of his followers away from the Alliance, came to Saran, and he asked the serene god for guidance and help, for Asgoth had found his parting from the Alliance and their goals a deep distress and error, since it had only caused further conflicts among both groups of his followers. Now Asgoth was faced with a number of fanatic followers, who could not be led back to the circle of the Alliance, and who would lay down their lives in order to reap souls in his honour, a gift he no longer could welcome, yet he could not abandon them.

Saran listened to his grave tale in silence, pondering for a long while. Then he inclined his head and spoke to the younger god: I care for all the souls who are lost in death, and your followers are surrounded by death. Let them come to my door, and I shall welcome them as mine, for I do not care why or how, but I care for those close to death.
And so it was sealed that Asgoth would return to the Alliance, and Saran would care for those warriors that Asgoth had turned into his care.
And thus it was also, that Saran stepped from the twilight of his existence and sent his visions to the priests who would carry out the miracles in his name.

Saran is the god of death and sleep, a deity that focuses on these neutral aspects in the circle of life. Prayed to by every citizen who loses a beloved or family member. Worshipped mostly by warriors under his name, though maybe a bit misunderstood, as they seem to think it is that he wishes death to spread violently and without a certain bit of 'natural order'.

All races view him as a necessity and the deity responsible for claiming lives and people pray to him in order to wish for a well being for the souls of those they have lost. For a very long time he was only referred to as 'They Grey One', since he represented the tranquil twilight between life and death.

Today only the above mentioned group of warriors (across all races) worships him in a different way, understanding his teachings in a way that often made them appear as cruel, heartless killers, when they understand themselves as deliverer of souls to their deity, thinking it is what he demands.

Within the world some people fear death, and some welcome it as a natural end. Saran, who has only recently stepped into the public eye, is seen with mixed feelings, both good and bad.

Among the Pantheon Saran is regarded as neutral.
