Pantheon #12

Still dealing with a busy work schedule. Sorry about that. One of my colleagues took a lot of time off, and I’ve been covering some of those shifts. At any rate, I haven’t had much time to write, so I’m taking advantage of this opportunity to post another showcase. Enjoy.

Showcase #12

Empiten

Empiten is the incarnation of the Progenitor’s hollow purpose. Once a figment of the imagination, he became all too real when humanity rejected the guidance of the Progenitor. Born of a broken heart, Empiten roams the dark and desolate places of the world, haunting dead lands and brushing elbows with the forsaken of society. Though close in temperament to Sorowa in his early years, the growing desperation of humanity jaded him as the centuries marched on. Dismal though he may be, Empiten serves as the only protector of those who escape even Compassia’s gaze.

The Advent of the Abomination: Since the earliest days of Koeleth, abominations have been associated with Empiten. Above all others, they are the homeless, the forsaken, the unwanted. In many ways they are Empiten’s true followers, even if they do not actively worship him. For all his negligence and indifference towards humanity as a whole, he ensures that abominations are taken care of. Nothing is off limits, whether it be transforming an Inquisitor stronghold in an abomination oasis or convincing a fellow guardian to send a empathetic adventurer to help a nomadic group of abominations.
