Thaidur, in life, was a strong warrior amongst the mortals. The gods did not ignore this and when it came time that he should pass on, they appointed him to guard the gate between Life and the Afterlife. There he stands to this day, a cloaked, skeletal being who's one purpose is to Open and Close that gate. Sometimes he leaves his post, and those that come while he is away must struggle to open the gate themselves until he returns. It is also said, that Thaidur controls the flow of souls from the Afterlife into Life as undead, and that if one tries to seize the gate into the Afterlife, Thaidur can call forth hordes of Undead to assist him.
Thaidur cares not for followers cares little what any of his followers do. He has but one purpose for which he is preserved and cares little for anything beyond that.
Clergy and Temples
Thaidur's few followers are often of any alignment and many of them are Warriors or Soldiers and sometimes the occasional Necromancer. Thus, most of his clergy are either Necromancers or Warriors, who are in awe of his strength or command of life. His temples are often no more than a small graveyard or mausoleum with a wrought iron gate.
