Elena and the Gods of the hunt
Few gods can claim to have a relationship like the one between Elena and the gods of the hunt. They can go from enemies to reluctant allies at the drop of a hat. Elena's main conflict is with the celestial Goddess of hunting, though she doesn't have good relationships with any of the terrestrial gods of hunting either, the only two she doesn't have out right bad relationships with are the Goddess of bounties, and the god of treasure hunts and searching for items
, she's merely neutral towards their existence.
Uwindo, celestial Goddess of the hunt
She is basically the other side of Elena's coin, some call her the other goddess of nature, or the goddess of natural survival. She most often appears as a Progenitor lioness, or Progenitor wolf, though like Elena she does have a humanoid form. She deals with all kinds of hunts, and loves the thrill of the hunt she is load and boisterous, she loves the kill just as much as she loves the ones that get away.
She is often in conflict with Elena due to her hunting down the biggest and most magnificent creatures, most of which are under Elena's protection. Where they get along is the respect for over all nature. Uwindo realizes full well that over hunting is bad, not only for nature but for hunting itself, and she likewise does not like technology or cities, though she does see how they effect hunting and does not penalize hunters who use new-er weapons or who hunt in cities.
Her symbol is a Progenitor lionesses head, carrying a spear in it's mouth.
Artorius, God of the glory of the hunt
Artorius was a legendary human hunter who only went after magical creatures, this lead him to hunt down and kill
several gift animals, and while theses kills did obtain him godhood, and title of the best hunter in the land. They also made him a enemy of Elena, and until recently*
he hunted down gift animals without fearing her wraith.
He is the closest to Uwindo in terms of worshipers, though his worshipers tend to be sport hunters while her worshipers come from all kinds of hunting backgrounds.
His symbol is a golden bow, which is his favored weapon.
Hawk, God of treasure hunts and searching for items
Hawk was a famous half-orc explorer, and had a gift for finding stuff. A literal gifted, he was one of the few to have The eye of true sight
. He used his ability to find objects, and even acted as a detective for a while. A recent addition the gods of the hunt, he became famous as one of the first people to explorer the new lands. He was also a brilliant map maker, most maps used today have his signature on them and are known for being very detailed yet easy to read.
His name becoming known in both the old lands and the spine of the world, ascended him to godhood. He is also the first non-living being hunting god of the hunt, and first of The god of sight of perspectives worshipers to ascend to godhood.
Unlike many other gods he still lives on the mortal plain, in the same house he used to though he is rarely their as he is often leading quests to find treasure. His symbol is a hawk with the god of sight and perspectives symbol for an eye.
Natalia, Goddess of bounties and bounty hunters
Natalia, ascended to godhood in the early days of the black empire. A Worshiper of Uwindo and a supporter of Hrod. She worked a vigilante in the empire, hunting down criminals and enemies of the empire, often finding out where the black empire was trying to expand it's reach and setting up there ahead of time, taking the bounties in an area and rounding up all the seedy elements.
And she was good at what she did, she used magic in conjunction with acrobatics and stealth to take out criminals of all types, she also helped train other bounty hunters in her ways. She was not above theatrics either, often using her spells to cast illusions on herself or boost her abilities so that she seemed more than human. Once Hrod's forces moved into an area, She would then move on to the next area leaving the legend of a super human bounty hunter behind. Also leaving those she knew partial to the idea of the Black empire.
This legend of hers grew, tales of a supernatural monster which preceeded the coming of Hrod's black empire. A creature that criminals feared, and bounties hunters admired, people would tell tales of the shadowy protector of their city, bards sang songs, even Hrod himself knew of the legends though being who he was he knew the truth behind them as well. But this infamy granted her godhood, as a goddess of the hunt, the hunt of criminals, the goddess of bounty hunters.
To this day she supports Hrod, something many gods find off putting as she has more respect for him than she has most other gods, with the exception of Uwindo.
Her symbol is a black tower with a figure standing atop it looking down though this is often simplified to just a black tower.
Other gods and goddesses exist*
and some other gods may overlap into being gods of the hunt but these are the core gods of the hunt.
