The patron god of those leaders who would create order through force and fear, Sraosha appears as a stunningly handsome and tall, dark human with noble air about him, and a raven always at his beck and call. Only his horns give away his devilish nature. He has many devils on his side, and lives right in Baator with them. He is charismatic yet terrifying, and believes rule through fear to be the necessary evil that comes with order. Of course, he delights in such necessary evils.
Sraosha is a god of the Nibiru Pantheon.
Order is required. Force is the weapon which order uses, and fear strikes anarchy from the very minds of man. And thus, peace is obtained through violence. Be a good citizen, and do what is needed no matter the cost.
Clergy and Temples
Worshipers of Sraosha are usually in a position of power to begin with, and they take his blessings to maintain their evil empires. Those who have not obtained power sometimes give him worship in hopes that through loyalty and legal loopholes, they too shall rise and eliminate their competition. Success is a Darwinian warfare after all, survival of the fittest.
