Atyr is the fifth and final god of Meridians path. Known as Atyr the Gate Keeper, and Atyr Who Guides, Atyr is the gender-less god of Death and Rebirth. As judge to those who enter the Underworld, Atyr rarely ever leaves his realm. Instead he utilizes a single agent to collect those who do not die peacefully. Some cling to life beyond the agents ability and become specters, gheists, and shadow-liches. Most however find their own path to the realm of rest and those who get lost are guided by The Agent.
Few witnesses have seen the agent and lived to tell the tale. Some claim it is an old hunchbacked hag with crooked teeth and a voice that could sever the soul from the body. Others claim it s a grey angel whose gorgeous eyes could kill with their sheer beauty. There is only one man in the city who knows the truth however…
Atyr has no devout followers and asks for none. He cares little about those who cling to life or overcome it by magical ability. Atyr serves more as a sentient force of nature than an imperfect god like the rest of the pantheon. Most sentient creatures insist that it is sinful to resist death and that rebirth is only for those who are pure, but the truth is Atyr does not care and no one knows what the secret to rebirth is.
