The Silent Friend, The Ender, Judge of Souls

Molak is a god apart. Where the first four primal gods arose from life and energy, Molak sprang into existence with the first death. The other gods, even the first four, are wary of Molak, for they know that he will come even for them. In ancient times, he was a god of the night, sleep and dreams as well as a god of death. Eventually, he passed these duties to others as he became tired of them. His participation in mortal affairs is minimal. He deals only with the dead.

Molak is a distant god, peaceful and patient. He knows that all will eventually come to him. He watches the world and waits, interfering only when others interfere with his prerogatives, death and the proper passage of souls. He guides souls in the afterlife and is the final judge of a soul’s fate.

Molak appears as a tall, thin man with pale skin and hair. He wears black robes and carries a scythe, as he is very traditionally minded.

His priests are responsible for making sure that the souls of the dead reach him and, from there, move on to their final rest. Molak’s priests have different opinions on the undead according to their alignment. Most good priests consider them an abomination, to be destroyed on sight and sent on to their judgment. His evil priests see the undead as tools to be used and cast away. His neutral priests range between the other two opinions. Molak himself is content to watch and wait. Even the undead will face him in the end.
