- Spell Compendium
The mysterious god of nature appears as a vaguely shadow-like beast that is not quite wolf, not quite panther, or any other four legged beast, but somehow appearing as possessing traits from any or all of them. The only constant is the tree branches which grow from its back like wings. It's mere presence is said to be both awe inspiring and strangely calming. Out of all the gods, it is Orifiel that spends the most time on the material plane, taking great interest. As opposed to Geburah's hunting, Anahita's growing, and Makatiel's infestations, Orifiel is the most peaceful and accepting of the nature gods focused more on the plant and animal aspects themselves, and less on how humanity interacts with nature. In that respect he can also said to be the most alien minded of them as well.
Orifiel is a god of the Nibiru Pantheon.
Live and be at peace. It does not expand beyond this, for Orifiel seeks harmony in the big picture. He lives outside the world of individual events, and witnesses the great flow of things.
Clergy and Temples
Orifiel has surprisingly few followers, if only if he offers very little in return. Still, the feeling of peace he brings is enough to bring some spiritualists and burdened souls to his side. Druids and rangers are an obvious pick for his member, the most popular druidic god even above Anahita. He possesses no temples, for every forest in the wild is his temple. His clergy often end up living in the same way, bereft of civilization.
