Arthur_shicho.jpg

Name: Shicho
Greater Deity
Symbol:
Home Plane (Sanctum):
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Portfolio: Stars, Far Sky, Trouble
Followers:
Clerical Alignments: CN, CG, CE
Domains: Chaos, Charm, Death, Void (Stars), War
Favored Weapon: Pistol/Hand Crossbow

Summary: Shicho is the God of the stars, the light of evening, and the hidden paths to victory. His wife is Melani goddess of forests and his passing between the Far Sky and her home causes day to turn to night… or so the peasants claim.
Something of a troublemaker, though not one given to cruelty, Shicho is often at the heart of any major event that happens in his pantheon… for better or for worse.

Cassae.jpg

Name: Cassae
Intermediate Deity
Symbol: Pearl that looks like the moon; or a moon that looks like a pearl.
Home Plane (Sanctum): Terra (Shivering Shore)
Alignment: Neutral Good
Portfolio: Lagoon, Bay, Oysters, Prophecy, Fate, Madness
Followers:
Clerical Alignments: LG, NG, CG
Domains: Magic, Madness, Luck, Water
Favored Weapon: Shuriken

Summary: Well known but not often actively worshipped Cassae is the goddess of silence. Rendered nearly mute she rarely speaks and some say can only utter prophetic statements. The wife of Kai Kea, she rarely leaves their sanctum though is known to occasionally travel among mortals usually in the guise of lost beautiful young woman.
It is an unfortunate irony that most of her more active followers are evil and twisted, desperately seeking knowledge of the future or twisting fate for their own gain. Orders devoted to Kai Kea like the Knights Crustacean often tirelessly hunt down such wicked souls who falsely appeal to the goddess of silent nights.

Railee.jpg

Name: Railee
Lesser Deity
Symbol: A bow, pointing downwards, with the ends of the bow decorated like palm fronds.
Home Plane (Sanctum): Shivering Shore.
Alignment: Neutral Good
Portfolio: Shoreline Plants, Fruit, Popsicles.
Followers: Children, Farmers.
Clerical Alignments: LG, NG, CG.
Domains: Community, Water (Ice), Plant.
Favored Weapon: Shortbow.

Summary: While the deep, dark forests that litter the center of the island are the domain of Melani, the plants that stretch to the shoreline are the domain of Rai Lee. These fruit-bearing plants that thrive along the edges of the beaches where the Islefolk live have become an important part of their existence, as coconuts, bananas, pineapples and other tropical fruit are a key part of island life. The goddess of palms is worshipped as a preserver of life and a bringer of flavor. Despite her deep association with the cold due to her parentage, Rai Lee likes to suppress this part of herself, preferring warmer climes until she gets angry or upset, when her affinity for the cold begins to leak out and affect her environment once more.

Rai Lee herself is a spunky, rebellious goddess, prone to swings in mood and complicated relationships – who often appears as a young teenager, despite her advanced age. She is Kai Kea’s younger sister, confidante, and best friend; she is rarely seen without him and she serves as both his right-hand man and adjunct general during the few times when the Oni are forced into conflict. She is known to have a rivalry with Melani over their shared domains (and possibly an unrequited love for Shicho), a vastly-complicated sometimes-sexual relationship with Master Jin, and a caring, but rebellious daughter relationship with Cassae.

Master_Jin.jpg

Name: Jin
Master Jin
Lesser Deity
Symbol: A Mountain unyielding before the wind
Home Plane (Sanctum): Barsoom
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Portfolio: Duty, Service, Loyalty
Followers:
Clerical Alignments: LG, LN, LE
Domains: Earth, Law, War
Favored Weapon: Longbow

Summary: There is a riddle in the Southwest. “Who is the greater adherent of the warrior’s way? The one who follows a good lord, or the one with an evil master?” The answer is the one who serves evil. Anyone can serve a good person.
While it would be simple to disregard Jin as a mere henchmen to the terrifyingly evil Kama, it is a disservice to him. He is often an advisor to even the greatest of the Oni and a mentor/challenger to many a young hero, both southlander and Azlanti.
