Description: Ahad-Amal was the first god worshipped as supreme by men. Long before Torik and Kalrik ruled, before Memnos and Thamor usurped them. Ahad-Amal was worshiped as King of the Gods. This ancient god given the duty of drawing the fiery orb created by Amal to light the world and give it life. During his traverse of the skies, Ahad-Amal can see all things that occur below him. He has often been drawn to the beauty of the Kal-Kamoran people, and legend tells that when he was injured by Arokie it was the Kamorans who saved him. He fathered many demi-gods amongst them. The first of his children established themselves as rulers of these people, and bade them to worship Ahad-Amal as the supreme deity. These were the first of the Khani, and for many thousands of years they would rule the empire of Kal-Kamora. Ahad-Amal is a rigid deity, set in his ways and stern in his administration of the celestial laws. He will allow knowledge of any kind that may exist, but strictly prohibits certain practices. He places curses upon those who violate the celestial laws. This eventually led to the downfall of the Kal-Kamoran Empire, and in turn his fall from grace. Though he still maintains his duty of drawing the sun across the sky, Ahad-Amal is no longer the fore-deity of an entire culture. He is barely mentioned outside of Kamora and Parthus. In Parthus he is known and worshipped by some, but is not as superior as Memnos. In Kamora he still has a large cult of worshipers, and in Gand he is often portrayed in a demonic light (since the Ganniards had once been enslaved by the Kamorans).
Appearance: Ahad-Amal stands tall with brazen skin, loose white toga, bronze jewelry, and a perfectly muscular body. His black hair floats in a halo of light as if always driving his chariot hard. He is most often depicted bearing a bronze spear, riding a golden chariott drawn by six fiery bronze horses. Behind the chariot run black chains, laced through bronze rings, and bound to a great brass sphere which is eternally engulfed in blindingly white hot flames.
Personality: Ahad-Amal is stern, resolute, and proud. Despite his nearly prisoner like position in the Parthan Pantheon, he holds to his greatest duty without question. He is determined to drive the chariott each day at the appointed hours. Those who still worship him often call upon his ancient position of power and leadership, and see him as a source of wisdom and lawful justice.
History/Relationships: The son of Atep (Loran) and Amal, he was given this duty for the respect he afforded them. He drives the chariot by day and delivers it to his sister, Ishobel, who drives it through the underworld by night. When his mother was brutally assaulted by Morda and Ishobel, he defended her, but she was still destroyed. Ishobel had Arokei drag the chariot of the serpent goddess and recovered the Chariot, but its light had already been extinguished. Anuk then took the gifts of Light and Life from the Titans and gave them to the goddesses Sheliak and Reahnyn. They reignited the bronze sphere, now called the Orb of Sheliak, and Ahad-Amal once again mounted the Chariott to draw it into the skies.
Powers: Ahad-Amal drives the sun, and so he can control where and when it appears, though he is so law abiding that he would never willfully steer it from its prescribed course unless he thought it the only way to protect it. He is also a master of the arcane secrets of the universe, and shares those willfully with his worshipers, though he sets restrictions on what can and can not be practiced. Violations of his laws often brings his wrath.
