Patron of Sacrifice

Once a Faendryl elf before the exile of the House, Amasalen's immortal origins are not known. He is the patron of sacrifice, and delights in the painful offering up of victims as gifts to a greater cause.

He is considered a servant of Luukos, which is borne out by his faintly reptilian features and craving for human blood. However, he has frequent dealings with Mularos, and many rumors state that his true master is Marlu. What is known for certain is that he is energized by bloody, frenzied religious celebrations.

Amasalen's form is that of a white-haired, lean, muscular man with bronzed skin, snake-like eyes and a long reptilian tongue. He wears only flowing white silk pants. In manner, he is zealous and sadistic. His symbol is a purple two-headed serpent twined about a crimson hand.

Shrines, Statuary, and Holy Places

Cleric Guilds

Displayed in the Prayer Rooms of each Cleric Guild is a statue of Amasalen. These prayer rooms are considered a holy shrine.

The statue depicts a lean, muscular man leaning forward in a semi-crouch.  Cruelty is written in the slant of his reptilian eyes.  His lips are parted in a sadistic smile, the tip of a forked, snake-like tongue protrudes slightly.  He is clad only in soft, loose-fitting pants.

Major Sanctuary (220)
The taste of blood fills your mouth as your vision blurs in a wash of red, causing the world around you to disappear...
[Sanctuary of Blood]
Dark and cloudless, the night sky spreads before you, punctuated by the soft glow of torches set at even intervals down several steep steps that disappear into a distant, dark jungle. Carved sigils ring a basin at the center of the sanctuary, its lip edged in razor-sharp obsidian that glistens with a thick, red liquid. A two-headed snake slithers around a severed hand painted crimson with its own blood at the edge of the sanctuary's platform.
Hissing suddenly, the twin heads of the serpent suddenly strike out towards you and your vision blurs with crimson light...

[2p]
[3p] Guttural and primal, the words of CASTER's chant are torn from CASTER's throat with enough force to slice the very air. He clenches his hands into tight fists and within moments blood begins to seep from between his fingers. Bending at the waist, CASTER opens his hands and presses his right hand to TARGET's forehead, and the other to his lips. Power surges through the connected bodies and within moments TARGET draws his first breath of life.
