Brennios - Kayugan - Priests - Gods

Brennios was the youngest son of Uthe. Born only minutes after his twin brother Belinos, he has despised and conspired against his brother from a young age. Although he and his brother got along at a younger age, it was the constant favoritism that Belinos received for the other gods that began to poison his love for his brother. He eventually attacked his brother in an attempt seize his power for himself. Belinos, while defending himself, smashed Brennios in the face with his mace, crushing the left side of his face and causing him to lose an eye. His brother did not mean to harm his brother that badly. Defeated and disfigured, he was cast into the underworld by his brother as punishment. There he met Portian, the ruler of the underworld and seduced her with promises of power and freedom. They were married and with her he fathered a daughter, Vitreous. He continues to plot ways to overthrow his brother and claim what he sees in rightfully his.

Role-playing Notes:

Brennios’ followers are often people who will do anything for their own personal gain. They will see power and wealth as the only way to achieve greatness in this world. They are often found meeting in secret temples where they offer up sacrifices in hopes to gain favor from their god. Followers also take great joy in thwarting any plans crafted by the priests of Belinos and will use vast amounts of their wealth and power to see these plans fail.

Duties of the Priesthood

Priests of Brennios are secretive in nature. Their temples are hidden and well protected with wards and traps to keep the uninvited out. They are obsessed with gaining personal wealth and power. There is a lot of in-fighting amongst the priests as they all vie for favor from their god. In fact, Brennios encourages such in-fighting as he believes it will give him the strongest champions and weed out the weak. Each priest acts as agents to Brennios and are given individual missions to try and further Brennios' power. These missions often involve destroying some part of Belinos' follower's plans or even killing them out right. The most truly devout of his priests will remove an eye in a sacred ceremony as an act of sacrifice hoping to gain favor with their god.
