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.
