Anyon is the god of the forge, typically always with his blackened apron & hammer. He has a thick beard, and long beaded hair. He grumbles about in his forge, upon Mount Zar, in Asoron. He is a loner, usually keeping to himself, though will gladly forge weapons & armor for other gods. He has made items for heroes, but doesn't like to get involved in mortal affairs. His parents are Saran & Gaia. He has always had a talent for bending metal and stone to his will, and making them keep his desired form with blows of his hammer.
The Offers: Not only being the god of blacksmiths, he is also the god of Offers. Anyon created the Offers in his own image by crafting them from metal, then smashing his hammer down with the utterance of a spell, bringing them to life. Offers stand 10 feet tall, their skin blessed with the luster and endurance of steel. With liquid iron pumping in their veins, the Offers aid Anyon in his forge.
Anyon is a firm believer in freedom of expression, especially through metal and stonework. He takes no pride or sorrow in what his creations are used for, be it protection or slaughter.
Clergy and Temples
Clerics of Anyon are typically Offers, though other races have clerics of him as well. The Offers shows gratitude to Anyon by perfecting metalworking. Most blacksmiths have a small shrine to him, or tokens around their necks.
