Age of Legends
elorion was once the regent of Summer. He was given charge over the Sun and over the power of fire. Now he is worshiped and feared by many within the Cult of Thryn as the God of War. Prior to his fall, Selorion had been a mighty and loyal servant of Andunai. He upheld the law of the Lord with dignity and honor. Indeed he was among the last of the Ilad to be turned by Elucien. He might have remained loyal yet, were it not for a perceived slight. When the sedition of Elucien was brought to light the Serpent of the Night declared war upon his maker. Being the mightiest warrior among the Lord’s Host, Selorion thought it would be he who would be chosen to lead the armies of Hethidador against the usurper. Yet to his astonishment Ithanian, the regent of Spring, was chosen to be captain over the angelic host. Ithanian was not as skilled in battle as Selorion, yet he was chosen for his purity of heart. On the eve before battle Elucien appeared before Selorion and inquired as to why the mighty Selorion had not been chosen to lead the charge against the Serpent of the Night. This, said he, was not only an insult to Selorion, but an affront to Elucien himself. For if Andunai neglected to send his very best against Elucien, it could only be because he wished to display his contempt for his former servant. Throughout these reproaches Selorion stood silent, brooding. Yet the Serpent of the Night then spoke soothingly, offering to make the Ilad captain over his own host would he but trade his allegiances. Selorion’s heart was turned and a dark covenant formed. Selorion crossed over that very night, and slew a multitude of the heavenly host. He sought to exact satisfaction for his besmirched honor by drenching his blade in the blood of his former comrades. It availed him little, for his wounded pride remained unabated. Moreover Selorion developed a taste for blood. This lustful sanguine craving drives him ever onward to war till that fateful day when he can sate his thirst with the blood of divinity.
Selorion rarely appears in angelic form. His favored forms are that of a giant blood red bull and large Hob-goblin garbed in a crimson robe and golden plate. He bears a wicked greatsowrd which remains forever drenched in the blood of his victims. Selorion is the favored god of Dread Knights, Antipalidins and all Thyrn warriors seeking glory in combat. He is worshiped by Dwarves and Hob-goblins alike.
