A mortal that has reached the ultimate pinnacle of power.
Standing at five foot six and only around 120 pounds, this human seems to be more then a little elven. He wears a sleeveless shirt, pants, and boots, all black. His cape is also black. On his shirt is a blood red outline of a dragon’s skull laying on a black background. His only visible weapon is a dual-scimitar carried across his shoulders. He is also smoking a pipe. His personality is something of a wonder. While often seen as the most powerful of the Three Grand Brothers he acts like nothing really matters. He could have an army of demons and devils charging at him and he'll laugh and make a stupid joke while others are trying to outrun the army. Some believe that this is do to his power, but people that claim to know him all say he is just that laid back. They also say never to insult his powers, as it tends to make him mad. They also say a key indicator of his rage is when he just go "dead", that is, completely monotone in voice, and a blank stare. Priests say that they would suggest running, but you'll only make it a few feet before he catches up to you.
Few follow Newrok, but those that do always believe that every action creates something, no matter how destructive that action is. A war ends thousands of live, but creates a new country. This is their motto. They have no home, because that would stop them from seeing creation in its infinite forms. They have few enemies. If the person wants only to destroy, they will never be seen around that person. They are willing to go to war if the cause is great enough. After all, Newrok fought in countless wars during his travels, and they continue today. Many clerics of Newrok have two deities. Newrok and another as their patron. Newrok is fine with this as he can't grant spells. He never discovered this power.
Clergy and TemplesEdit
The clergy keeps no temple. That would take form nature and ruin its beauty. The only church that there is for Newrok is in the hearts of people. War is the only time prayers are sent to him. Followers believe that he then studies the war and picks the side that is the most just and fight fort them as simple foot soldier. His only request for followers is to look out for Rage, one of his own brothers bent on killing him.
