Return to Deities
It has been a long time since Lakius was last seen. His place as the master of all the seas and the skies seems but a memory to many. His time of glory, when the races
wondered at the marvels that are the sea and sky is past. His role is now that of the old hermit, and guides those that stray too far and sympathizes with those who are alone.
His followers have become fewer and farther between. Those that remain are often from the less civilized or less educated regions of Habololy. The religion is one that preaches a return to the past and of doom for the future.
Although the clergy of Lakius are not active outside of their communities, they have a strong resentment towards the religions of Compture and Tommimao, who they believe are the two deities that are primarily responsible for the downfall of Lakius.
Lakius is so rarely seen that even his followers have a difficult time portraying him as anything but a long-haired human in a fisher’s clothes.

Dogma: The truth can be found in peace and solitude. The sky and the sea are the buffers between people so that they might discover the truth. Fire, earth, and the creatures that use them or spawn from them bring on the evils of the world. Those who die without discovering the truth to existence are destined to be born again until they are successful. Those who discover the truth live on after death in peace.
