The trickster, one of the Lightbringers

See also Trickster

This troublemaker is a jester and a fool, but armed with divine energy and power. His tricks change the world, his pranks create or destroy. Sometimes his jokes are harmless, such as when he attended an important banquet and made all the gods’ clothing transparent. Eurmal can be helpful, as illustrated when he distracted the gate guards of Hell so that the Lightbringers could slip by. Often he is malicious, as when he ate all of the flying raccoon babies. He is as often the butt of jokes as he is the prankster.

Eurmal is a self-indulgent buffoon. Eating, drinking, and fornicating are his favored activities; thievery and callousness are his entertainments. Every sensible deity throws this bum out of his pantheon if he can, and every sensible human throws any worshiper out of his house. Only Orlanth can (sometimes) control him.

Eurmal is usually shown provocatively dressed and impishly grinning, often with sharp teeth. With one hand he holds a leather bag of tricks while he makes an obscene gesture with the other.
