God of death and war

Humakt is Death. He is the unyielding fate of all living creatures, both mortal and divine. To the Pelorians he is heartless, and can be circumvented only by following the resurrection paths of their god, Yelm. To his barbarian followers, Humakt is a frightening but necessary agent of eternal change who can be used in a courageous and noble way to preserve the world. Thus the Pelorians do not worship Humakt, but fear him, while the Orlanthi both worship and fear him.

His image is that of an ornate sword, sometimes made from exotic materials, or as an burly armed and armored man bearing a sword.
