OverviewEdit

The Zieek pantheon is one full of many deities, though only twelve know considerable recognition in the heavens and Ehrdi. The religion venerates these twelve the most, each of them taking reign over a specific aspect of Ziegun life. Many of the Zieek deities are rather promiscuous, making the Ziegun the race most likely to boast a demigod (or three) every few centuries. The exact creed and morals vary from Zieek deity to deity, and most Ziegun pay homage to all of the main twelve gods, though their home city may take one or two specific deities as their home patrons. When Ziegun die, their souls, whether good or evil, go to Hades. How a soul perceives Hades, however, depends on one's life; those more of good character experience something close to eternal bliss, while those who lived wicked lives find various forms of eternal punishment within the Zieek realm of the dead.

AlastairEdit

Gender: Male
Morals: Lawful Neutral
Nicknames: Lightning Thrower, Father of All (in reference to his infidelity)
Allies: Zieek Deities
Enemies: High Demons
Holy Text: Bronti
Domains: The Ziegun, Thunder, heavens
History: When Vador created the first Zieek god, Pan, he left the half-goat deity to his own destiny. Pan first created Alastair, Kyrene, and Than. He went on to create the continent of Nordin, and then the mortal Ziegun, half-goat in appearance as he was. Shortly after, however, he broke out in an argument with his sons Alastair and Than, and the conflict led to his death. Alastair then took upon the mantle of leader of the Ziegun and created the remaining nine main Zieek gods. He is the primary reason Zieek demigods are so common (in comparison to other racial demigods, at least). He is infamous for having flings with various women, mortal and goddess alike. This tends to make his wife, Kyrene. quite jealous.
