Farline : The Eastern Gateways
“May the sun bless you always”
~ Saying Attributed to Peros the Solar Being
Peros, also known as the Solar Being, is the polar opposite of Nozlordu. Nozlordu and Peros were the two gods who dominated the Pantheon during the war games of Creation. Eventually all the gods chose sides with either Nozlordu or Peros.
Peros embodied the very sun itself in his sense of justice, valor and good. In the beginning Peros started the war games to appease the gods’ love for meddling in the lives of mortals. His champions counted devout clerics and paladins, kings and lords of the finest quality. When Nozlordu began summoning abyssal demons to join his horde, Peros called upon angelic beings and citizens of the Sunline to aid the mortals. At the end of days when Peros and Nozlordu clashed, Peros created an avatar of himself on earth bestowing godly power to a single mortal known as The Crusader. With his aid Peros was able to seal away Nozlordu and his hellish minions behind the gates they had come from in an event called The Sealing.
Peros is worshiped by the good people of the world. His followers are devout, god-fearing and holy. Unified by their love of Peros, the Church of Peros conducts crusades and holy missions on a regular basis and preaches the beautiful world of Peros. Peros embodies all that is good in the world and is the “good” god of Farline.
Depictions Of Peros
Peros is depicted as a shining knight in golden armor. His armor is usually decorated with wings and adornments that give him an angelic and celestial appearance. Peros is almost always portrayed as a hero in the stories he is referenced in though sometimes the stories bring to mind a hot-headed and self-absorbed Peros. In Nozlordu Of The Void Peros is depicted as an unjust and self-righteous deity that started the war games of Farline out of his own vanity and need to feel powerful. This retelling of events is not popularly accepted, although many cults across Farline believe it to be the true expression of Peros’s character.
