Aesur is the youngest and most powerful of the Four Primordial Deities sung into existence by Correllus. Through a series of conflicts with rival deities, he has become the undisputed master of The Heavens, the Earth, and even Hell itself.
Aesur has three aspects which he takes every day. In the morning he is Aesur Lightbringer, who is the loving father of mankind. In the afternoon, he is Aesur the Undefeated Sun, champion of all things holy. When he sets, he becomes Aesur the Dusklord, who judges the souls of all who died that day.
Aesur is the lord of all things, and brooks no competition. He has shown little mercy for mortals who attempt to usurp the station and become gods.
To those who do not challenge him, however, he is a fair, and well reasoned god.
Aesur's greatest weakness as a ruler, by his own admission, is his fanatical devotion to his own rules. Once every generation, he invests a small portion of his power and consciousness into a mortal. Most of the time, that mortal lives and dies with little consiquence. However, on the rare occasion that this mortal is martyred or dies in a particularly terrible way, Aesur will consider this man's life, as he just lived it, and change his laws accordingly.
The last such mortal died at the hands of a powerful dragon mage during the Dragon Wars. Because of this event, Aesur has banned the practice of Magic from the realm and imprisoned his daughter, Goddess of the Moon and Magic, within her own palace.
Clergy and Temples
Clerics of Aesur follow one of three sects. The Clerics of Aesur the Lightbringer concern themselves with helping the less fortunate and to gently sheparding sinners back into Light of the Sun God. Clerics of Aesur the Undefeated Sun concern themselves with destroying evil where it bears its head proudly. Clerics of Aesur the Dusklord are Judges and Inquisitors, and seek out the evil and unlawful where it hides its face.
Temples to Aesur tend to be made of marble or other light stone and feature golden or bronze filligree. They always use natural light, and often feature a dome with an occulus. You can find one temple to Aesur in every sizable human settlement.
