11.7.16 Thoth, the Lord of Death
Known as the Inevitable, Lord of Souls, Master of Death, and Guardian of the Soulrealms, Thoth is reputed to be a reclusive and bitter Deity, aloof in all things mortal. He serves as Guardian, Caretaker and Collector of the Souls of the dead. The Lord of Death greets all departed souls and leads them into the eternal realms of the Soul. Being neither Evil in nature, nor Good, the Lord of Death accepts all mortal souls into His realms regardless of their actions in those brief preparatory moments called "life." Those that would gain His attention by causing needless destruction and loss of life would find themselves ill served. He cares not for such ways. The souls of lives that are cut short do not benefit Him nor His Realms, and those who cause these things to come about will earn His enmity. As in life, the fleeting, uncertain preliminary to all who enter the realms of Lord Thoth, so too in death there must be purpose. While Lord Thoth cares not for matters of mortal consequence, He spends some of His vast attention on a group of mortals that He calls His children. A cult of assassins, warriors, priests and prophets, they serve to further His influence by serving as Qui'anar and Quisalis, terms long forgotten by most of Sapience. While cloaked in mystery and intrigue, His realm is clear to those who follow Him. Many questions are answered by the souls of the dead. Lord Thoth intends that all living complete the full, and unavoidably brief terms appointed to their lives, secure in the inevitable reality that they will all come to face Him. One who lives a full life will leave his mortal coil with no regrets, embarking on the final journey with Him to the Soulrealms. Heed this warning and live each day as though it were your last. The Lord of Death is represented by the image of a soaring vulture, a large willow tree and a black flame.
