Heler

[HEL-er]

Orlanthi pantheon — god of rain

Heler, the blue god, is Orlanth‘s loyal friend though subordinate to him. He is quite handsome, and at least one tale relates an affair between him and Ernalda, Orlanth’s wife. Heler is occasionally considered a militant deity, but rarely an effective one. His name is a watchword for loyalty among Orlanth worshipers, and to be called “staunch as Heler” is a high compliment. Sheep are sacred to him, and Daga is his eternal foe, ever-defeated by Heler’s magic waters.

Heler is usually pictured as a handsome blue-skinned man, accompanied by or calling clouds. He is never armed, to show that his blue skin is not woad (worn only by warriors).
