Drax was the unfortunate child product of Khronos and Luka, produced when the two greater god couples tried to create new lives and children. An odd conjunction of events led to both Luka and Tenebra going into labour at the same time, with three children being the product: whilst Khronos and Luka had only one child, an odd opposite in nature to his parents – evil to their good, Tenebra and Hypnos produced twins of opposing nature who nonetheless complement each other.
Drax is as rigidly lawful as his parents but he despises himself and all his mother stands for, hence his over-riding trait is evil. Bound to roam between the planes, neither a creature of light nor of darkness, he guards jealously all that which falls into his domain of death – he is the end to light and life (which must come to all mortals). and also the enemy of his aunt Tenebra, for he brings the final darkness of death to mortals, which she cannot penetrate.
The circle of life must end in death, ultimately, for all.
Clergy and Temples
Drax’s priests revere and put forward the belief that death is the ultimate end to which we all must come. They object to unnatural prolonging of life and are also therefore proponents of euthanasia and also capital punishment. They often make a lot of extra money by combining their temples with an undertaker’s business.
Relation To Other Andaran Gods
Drax is the son of Khronos and Luka. His aunts Ardra and Tenebra both oppose him: he is the antithesis of Ardra’s reverence for all natural life, and also the enemy of his aunt Tenebra, for he brings the final darkness of death to mortals, which she cannot penetrate.
