Terennas, Lord of the Dead
Terennas teaches respect for the dead. He also teaches that mortals and outsiders are meant to serve the planar lords, not to do as they please. Terennas is worshipped primarily by outsiders and humanoids of True Neutral or Lawful Neutral alignment.
Clergy and Temples
Terennas has few temples; most beings are reluctant to court his favor or wrath. The ones he does have are scattered throughout the planes. Terennas' clergy wear black robes with hoods. Terennas typically appears in art as a lich in long, thick black hooded robes carrying a scythe and scales.
Terennas was created for the Fortress Celestia setting, as the "grim reaper" of the pantheon, but DM's are welcome to "borrow" this deity or any elements of this description for their own purposes.
Terennas who was chosen for the job because he was the only one that the other gods could trust with it. In public he is a cold, heartless god who cares only for following his own rules and those of his immediate superiors regardless of the wishes of the other gods. Trerennas regards all mortal beings, even epic - level characters, outsiders, dragons, etc. as beneath him, for one day all will be at his mercy. Unlike most other gods in the Fortress Celestia pantheon, he detests his job and spends a lot of time brooding or distracted.
