Defenders of Stormfast
The evil Orlak is the god of War. Known as The Elder Son, his two aspects are Orlak Katona, King of Battle, and Orlak Boder, Duke of Heroes. As the chaotic Katona, he gains the domains of Nature and Tempest. As the lawful Boder, he gains the domains of Knowledge and Trickery. He is also known as Orlak Ehakun, King of Fear. In this neutral aspect, he gains the domains of Light and Tempest.
Orlak is the secondary male deity in Tarmerian religion. The rituals dedicated to him usually involve blood sacrifices or self-flagellation, especially in times of war. Prayers to Katona are mostly prayers for victory and protection from invasion, while prayers to Boder are mostly prayers for bravery and for good fortune from sacrifice. To Ehakun go the dead who died afraid, especially those that feared their death, and sought to prevent it, for death is one foe that no man should best.
