Miflorg, along with his brother, Merrshaulk, God of the Yuan-Ti, aided those that created the planes of existence and brought all into being. Though Merrshaulk appears as a Yuan-Ti abomination, Miflorg appears as a human. 6' 7" tall, short curly black hair, and sunglasses. Yes, sunglasses. He has taken the titles of The King of Luft and He-Who-Walks-Alone in the past. The Luft title spurring from an old language, Luft meaning freedom. He-Who-Walks-Alone is a nickname given to him by his Clerics when Miflorg liberated his followers from the control of Gruumsh One-Eye without the aid of any other gods. Miflorg does not enjoy seeing things rest as one, stagnant thing for too long. He gave the revolutionaries the sickle as a symbol of revolt. More entertainment for his cosmic big-screen I suppose.
Miflorg encourages his followers to be very laid back and enjoy life. Often times you can find a large gathering of his clerics all in a sunny pasture, just laying down and enjoying it. If anything, Miflorg has been called the hippie of the gods many a time. Though he is peaceful, Miflorg encourages revolt and uprising, particularly in Monarchies and Dictatorships. He likes to see people go Che Guevara on a kingdom in his name. Freedom is something that he aspires to bring to all people. Whether it be in subtle ways, twisting fate, or by sticking his hand down onto the material plane and unlocking a slaves chains. Either way the fat guy in the fancy robes finally loses.
Clergy and Temples
Miflorg's clergy are all nearly as relaxed as he himself is. Wearing red robes with orange accents, the clergy embody his flaming revolutionary spirit. Almost always you can find a cleric of Miflorg carrying a sickle. The clerics can also be found napping on the sides of the road or just staring aimlessly in deep thought. Though when called into action, the clerics of Miflorg are a fierce bunch. With domains of War and Fire, the attacking clerics can smite the enemies into a pile of ash. With healing and liberation, the more peaceful clerics are some of the most sought after healers in the world, healing both physical and mental wounds. With Miflorg being of Chaotic Neutral alignment, the clerics have a choice between turning and rebuking as they do with healing and inflicting. A fierce bunch indeed.
Miflorg's temples, even though he is a greater God that aided in the creation of reality, Miflorgs temples are banned from most cities. This is because Miflorg of course, calls for revolution and peaceful anarchy. The notions given by Miflorg would disrupt and destroy the control the governments work hard to maintain. These temples though, are commonplace along country roads and in, well, essentially any non-city area. Any traveler may stop, get a bite and a place to sleep for a night or two. The clerics and clergy are all welcoming to anyone that passes, anyone that is, that doesn't try to meddle in their affairs. Those people usually return home in a stylish burlap satchel.
Monasteries devoted to the worship of Miflorg are just as common as the temples in certain countries. Acolyte monks train to bring about Miflorg's desires whether that be the destruction of an oppressive kingdom, the freeing of captives in a far away land, or even the take-down of a trading company (because why not). The monks take no vows of chastity or abstinence. The monasteries have no leadership, rather it is a cooperative anarchy where everyone has freedom to do what they desire as long as it follows Miflorg's doctrine. On their free time, the monks can be found writing poetry, talking philosophy, or smoking any drug they can get there hands on. They are renown around the world for their efficiency and effectiveness in rescue missions but often spell trouble if they are asked to perform a task for even the most benevolent of sovereigns.
Any race may worship the mighty Miflorg, he's not racist, he hates everybody equally!
