Lords of the End of Time
Alignment: Good Domains: Sun, Hope, JusticeKnown to her faithful as the Dawnflower, the Healing Flame, and the Everlight, Sarenrae (pronounced SAER-en-ray) teaches temperance and patience in all things. Compassion and peace are her greatest virtues, and if enemies of the faith can be redeemed, they should be. Yet there are those who have no interest in redemption, who glory in slaughter and death. From the remorseless evil of the undead and fiends to the cruelties born in the hearts of mortals, Sarenrae’s doctrines preach swift justice delivered by the scimitar’s edge. To this end, she expects her faithful to be skilled at swordplay, both as a form of martial art promoting centering of mind and body, and so that when they do enter battle, their foes do not suffer any longer than necessary. Perhaps the most pervasive faith in Katapesh is that of Sarenrae the Dawnflower. She is commonly held as the savior of the people and the strongest force against the cruelty of slavery and heartless mercantilism. Sarenrae’s faithful are often at odds with the established rulers of Katapesh, which places her followers in the difficult position of choosing between their faith and patriotism. Sarenrae’s symbol is an angel with arms outstretched and wings raised to form the shape of an ankh.
