Arawn, the Dark One, is the Celtic god of life and death. He dwells in Annwn, the Ten Isles of the Cursed, in the second layer of Hades.
Despite being Neutral Evil, he considers himself a necessary evil to preserve and maintain goodness, for good cannot shine as bright without evil. He also often intervenes whenever someone attempts to resurrect another person, either sending an avatar to forcefully reclaim the soul, or bargaining to replace the resurrected with a similiar soul. He rewards loyalty and steadfastness, and punishes liars and those lacking cunning with harsh but fair justice.
Arawn appears as a regular man with very deep set and dark features, wearing a black robe.

The goblyns of Forlorn believe that all killing and bloodshed glorifies their god, and killing swells his kingdoms size. They are happy to mindlessly slaughter anyone and anything that they see and throw themselves to gory deaths. Undeath, resurrection, and reincarnation are abhorrent to them, as they believe this to rob Arawn of subjects. The entrance to Annwn, the Isle of the Cursed, the realm of their god, is believed to lie in the Maw of Arawn, fissure at the top of Mt. Arawn (have we said Arawn enough times yet?).
To the Forfarians and Tepestani, Arawn is the seldom-mentioned and feared god, goddess in Tepest, of death, often placated through sacrifices.
