Wrath of the War God
Disidius, God of Vengeance
Origins. Desidius is one of three once-mortal brothers. Each of the brothers grew to be a leader in their own right, each of a different group. When Dethkar insulted Deksis, the latter declared war against the offender. The two factions fought for many years, until eventually the two brothers met on the battlefield. Deksis insisted they fight unarmed to settle the dispute honorably once and for all, though not to the death. Dethkar accepted, and fought his brother. Deksis was on the winning end of the fight easily, but just before the final blow was struck, Dethkar pulled a knife from his belt and stabbed his brother. Desidius swore an oath to avenge his fallen brother, and immediately set his faction against Dethkar’s. When the dust had settled and Dethkar’s armies lay broken, Desidius remained with newfound divinity.
Appearance. Desidius always appears in scalemail with red cloth adornments. His helmet is plain with two narrow eye-slits. His face is possessed of sharp, angular features and he wears close-cropped deep-red hair.
Symbol. A hammer crashing into the ground, with minor crack marks in the ground around it.
Doctrine. Wrongful acts must be punished, though what is wrongful is often decided up to the parties involved. Excessive retaliation is a perfectly accepted tactic.
Tenets. No-one should slight you or those you care for. Those that do are given one warning. Another transgression warrants some form of retaliation, usually in the form of combat.
