Opococo, an albino Roc, is the elder of the two, who used to be both the herald of life and death. However, the heavy task of both protecting the living and guiding the dead was too much, so he bestowed a portion of his powers to his younger brother, Jiji, a black eagle (similar in look to a Montane Solitary Eagle.)
Opococo is the Protector of Life, stopping people from dieing before their has come. Every close saving throw, skill check, and fumble that you have ever survived is because of him. He also has control over time, but he may only stop it for a short while.
Jiji is the Herald of Death, who guides the souls of the dead into the afterlife, leaving behind their corpses. He is also granted temporal powers, but he must clean up the aforementioned corpses, as a cost and as respect for the dead. To assist with cleanup, various avatars of Jiji are scattered throughout the world and the planes, all under one hivemind. Various Sorcerers, Rangers and Druids may knowingly volunteer, or chosen to be a caretaker of an avatar.
Pay respect to the living, the dying, and the dead.
Clergy and Temples
Anywhere that they may have had influence or presence, commonly temples can also be seen on higher altitudes (e.g. on mountaintops, hills, etc etc) so that they may feel closer to them.
They are not members of a pantheon, but some worshipers in pantheons may adopt them for their own.
