Corwyn’s neutral God of Destiny. Ethenghar and his brother Atanavar; the God of Knowledge were created directly by the Unnamed One, and he is the oldest and most powerful of the neutral Deities. Ethenghar is also the father of S’ Thar; Goddess of Luck. The God of Destiny is quite neutral, allowing mortals to choose their path to its end. Because of his role, Ethenghar is worshiped as the God of Destiny, Fate, Roadways, and the protector of Travelers. Ethenghar is also the patron God of Merchants, Commerce, and Trade.

Ethenghar’s symbol is a pair of worn brown boots that he wears on his journey to his own destiny, while he oversees the destinies of all others. He has very few followers, other than philosophers and sages who study the theories of destiny and fate. His few priests wear soiled brown robes that symbolize the constant travels of their master. Unlike other priestly orders, Ethenghar’s followers erect few temples; many wander the world in search of understanding and wisdom; many of his followers are monks and bards. However, in major cities, there are temples to Ethenghar where Merchants and tradesmen worship to the God of Commerce, and it is not unusual to find shrines to Ethenghar at road junctions, roadside inns, and rural rest stops for travelers.

As one of the first generation of neutral deities, Ethenghar has no rivals.
