Father of seeds

One legend claims that Flamal was born from a piece of living amber which grew upon the pleasant seashore which surrounded the Spike. He was killed and eaten by Zorak Zoran, and for this the earth mother withdrew all her support from the world and weakened it prior to the war against chaos. When Time began Flamal was also reborn, bringing joy and fruitfulness to all in the world whether or not they worshiped him. With various brides, Flamal begat all the many crop-and plant-goddesses of the universe.

He is rendered as a wise old man or elf with sprouts of all kinds branching from his body. He is usually carved from amber.
