Three helmeted heads, four arms, twin curved longswords and a bloodthirsty nature, Arkus suits his position well as the executioner of those the judges of the Plane of Order deem guilty, that is, when said Judges don't do the job themselves. His swords were each formed from the bones of a chaos god, killed long ago and transmuted into an unworldly metal. He is happy to destroy any who are guilty, but gets a certain sadistic pleasure from ending the life of a god of chaos or their followers.
Most of the followers of order choose the greater deities of the Plane of Order, however there are some who do choose Arkus as their lord. Arkus teaches his followers to destroy any who follow, or even commit acts of, chaos. He cares not for good and evil, and his followers may choose either as long as they stay close to the path of law and order.
Clergy and Temples
The main follower of Arkus are Executioners and Paladins, who support his sense of justice, however there are still a good amount of Clerics that call him their god. He has little in the ways of Temples, and instead prefers his followers to build personal shrines, adorned with the eyes of the executed.
Arkus is one of the sons of the Plane of Order, and of its queen. He is the second to last born amongst the sons and daughters, but still holds his position with pride.
