Kingdoms of Kandalar
God of the Moon, Protector and Warrior. He who holds back the darkness.
A powerfully built bearded warrior dressed in classical armour carrying a shield that is bares the moon’s phases. He is the suitor of Saule, he is always chasing her across the sky on his black steed Belus which has a fiery tail (a comet?).
He grows stronger and weaker with phases of the moon and fights an eternal battle against dark god Glitschen; at full moon he is either waning or waxing in strength with complete victory or defeat only when the moon is strongest or when their is no moon.
A protector against the darkness and evil, he is a warrior god. As warfare can only really be prosecuted during the summer months, he is linked with both civilisation and warfare and gives the harvest and blood moon as portents.
