Overview Edit

the Liathane is the combined power of the Laetha and the Dierne and a god unto themself. They are the Eighth God and sometimes referred to by their number (Eight/8 or Eighth/8th) rather than name. Their role in the West varies; to some they are a challenger and destructive influence, to others an outsider to be placated or avoided, and to still others a savior figure taking in those discarded by the other gods. the Liathane is a god of horror and bringing our subconscious feelings and thoughts to life, whether they are fears, guilts, or hypocrisies.

House Edit

It is currently unknown who lives in and presides over the Liathane's House, called House Havoc.

Court Edit

Achroma Court, also known as the Colorless Court, is the Liathane's Court. Its members and leader are unknown, though it is suggested their actions are primarily nocturnal.

Initiatory Order Edit

the Liathane's Order is called Bedlam or Egress.

Appearance Edit

the Liathane is a shape-shifter, utilizing an Other Person's fears to present themselves. They have been known to adopt the appearance of a giant white snake or centipede, as well as often appearing with an unsettling pale face. Whether an Other Person sees the Liathane or not, they may experience the sensation of being watched, being in danger, or paranoia to signify the Liathane's presence.
