11.7.9 NERAEOS, GOD OF THE SEA
The divine child of Caspian, the Elder God of the Seas, and an unknown mother, Neraeos was born a Demi-God early in the history of the world. He was raised in the faraway undersea, among the tritonic empires. Living there, He grew into a scholar, a philosopher and a warrior. He fought with distinction in the Battle of Nishnatoba, having led a legion of tritons under the command of His father. After the War of Power was finished, Neraeos disappeared for the rest of recorded history, living among the peoples of the sea. Upon the fall and death of Caspian, the mantle of Godhood passed to Neraeos, and He has since emerged from the Deep, curious, yet suspicious of the world above. Neraeos is the God of the Sea and Master of Flowing Waters. He is at times cold and placid, yet He can be driven to great passions, for good or for ill. The fickle, tempestuous sea reflects His moods, the waters an extension of His will. Neraeos feels that it is the duty of His Order to watch over the waters of Achaea, to nurture and protect them, to make certain that the oceans and the peoples that dwell within them are kept safe both from the foul beasts of the deep, and from the greedy hands of those who walk the land. The virtues espoused by the Lord of the Sea include those of Strength, Passion, Vigilance, and Duty. The Sea is Eternal, yet always in Flux. Cloaking the vast reaches of Achaea, its waters are the blood of the world, a sustainer of life. At the same time, the Sea is capable of passionate, merciless destruction. A paradox, a riddle, a mystery... The Sea is all of these and more, and but few of the land will ever truly understand it.
