Nicor is the embodiment of all evil in the universe. Even those that seek power, and would worship him, fear his wrath. As a result almost all evil beings seeking his aid do so through a Patron God, hoping to gain favor by serving those powers to promote Nicor’s influence. Nicor is always depicted as a rotting human corpse with a crystal skull for a head. He normally clutches a black iron battleaxe in his withered hands.
Nicor cares not for followers, and only wishes to see death consume all things. If any turn to him for aid they must be willing to make living sacrifices in order to gain his favor, and even then he may still extract an additional payment if he feels he deserves it. His chosen colors are Black and Red.
Clergy and Temples
Nicor has no formal Church, and as such no true temples. Those that choose to worship him do so in times of need, and tend to try and sever their connection with him as soon as the deal is done. At those times altars are made with skulls of sentient creatures and on them foul candles burn awaiting the sacrifices.
There are no particular days that are held as holy to Nicor, but those that dare worship him hold services at the height of Full Moon or New Moon.
