The Grim Mantle
God of Fire and the Sun
Rakn is the god of the sun, and one of the most popular gods in Tal’Darin. Rakn represents both duty and strength, as the sun’s rays are both dutiful and undaunted. Legends say that Rakn once propositioned Kaliherah the god of the sea, however Kaliherah resisted his advances. Rakn was persistent, and eventually compromised with Kaliherah, that if he could find her, she would be his. Rakn, knowing every inch of the earth that had ever been touched by the sun’s rays was confident of his victory. Rakn had underestimated Kaliherah though, she hid in the deepest part of the ocean, where the sun’s rays could not find her. Rakn has searched for her every day since, instructing his sun rays to sift through every drop of water they can find, they bring the drops to him, then he hurls them back to earth when he grows mad at his fruitless search.
