Horned Man

The Great Shaman, the horned God

The Horned Man is the Father of Shamans. During the Great Darkness he sang great runes using his wit, skill, and deadliness, to trick Chaos into letting him go. He sometimes visits young children in their sleep, and if they do not cry out then they are destined for a shaman’s career. The mightiest shamans can draw on his power to create magical Soul Winds which can devastate whole armies.

He is rendered as a human wearing an animal hide, often painted with runes, always accoutered with necklaces, bracelets, and belts of spell foci, and with horns similar to a deer’s.
