About this deity
The broken circle – The holy symbol is a medallion made of obsidian, crudely carved, and hung around the neck on braided cords of red and black. Priests keep the symbol hidden under their garments but remove it and hold it high in rituals and incantations. Priests also use the symbol to place a bloody mark on the foreheads of their kills, to send the soul into chaos and insanity.
Kortamus is considered the outcast god who abused his power to bring chaos and evil into the world. His worship is forbidden in most Alra-Paranian cultures, though small sects are though to exist in the Itantas.
Kortamus is the god of evil and chaos, opposed to the will of the other gods and their ends. He espouses no virtues other than opposition to the order and self-glorification, with glorification of Kortamus being above all.
Followers of Kortamus tend to believe Kortamus’ act of vengeance has permanently thwarted the original fate of the world, and that chaos and evil should not be resisted because they are inevitable. Followers, led by the priest, perform many pagan and gory barbaric rituals, though seldom in large groups. Followers and their priests must have alignments either chaotic, evil, or both.
Priests of Kortamus tend to be dark and angry people. They serve to destroy the fabric of societies, and thus have no duties to, or functions in, any society. They will head all ceremonies and rituals of their sect, and promote their god’s will, but have no other duties. Priests of Kortamus are typically from priest families, their souls “given” to their god at birth in a blood ritual.
