11.3.6 ARION, THE TRUTHSEEKER
Once the God of Valour, Arion was weakened during a fight with the Kerrithrim and was defeated to such a state that even His essence was nearly consumed. Weakened to such a degree, it was only after the essence of the Lord of Truth had finally escaped from the Plane of Shadow and fused with Arion that He recovered His strength. With the accumulated strength of both deities, Lord Arion was able to return to the material world. With the revelations that Lanos had received in His isolation in the realm of Shadows, Arion's core tenets have now shifted their focus from Valour to the search for Truth, for much of the world has been distorted by the vices of Corruption and the subtle manipulations of Artifice. An arrow will only fly straight, though if it is marred with imperfections in its build, will not strike true. It is thus that if one is distracted by unnecessary ideals and emotions, one will only fail to achieve his ultimate goal. Twin swords, one the golden Blade of Valour and the other the fiery Sword of Truth, poised upright towards the air in parallel - this is the Truthseeker's symbol.
