Lendys, also called the Scale of Justice, The Balancer and the Weigher of Lives, is the Dragon God of Justice in Dungeons & Dragons. In contrast to the apathetic Chronepsis, who observes dragon lives in order to sort their souls to the afterlife upon their deaths, this tarnished Silver Dragon seeks to judge dragons for their behavior in life.

Luckily for the more malevolent breeds of dragon, he mostly concerns himself with injustices against dragonkind as a whole. When roused, though, his punishments are severe and appeals unheard of.

Lendys is most commonly worshipped by dragonblood clerics who wish to serve justice, or by dragonblood paladins; such individuals often serve as arbiters for their local communities. It's not unheard of for actual dragon worshippers of Lendys to be requested to serve as adjudicators for neighboring communities.

Temples are rarely constructed to Lendys; the callings of his duty to punish wicked dragons rarely are served by sitting at one spot. Most commonly, worshippers pray at small shrines, or set them up in courtrooms. His prayers are solemn recitations focusing on judgment.

As you'd expect of a justice-freak god, to Lendys' faithful, a trial is a holy rite, resulting in the weighing of evidence and the rendering of judgment being taken very seriously. Lendys himself is only concerned with dragons, but his worshippers have a broader definition of his portfolio. They tend to get on well with Saint Cuthbert and his faithful, whilst disliking chaotic deities such as Kord, Olidammara and Erythnul.

Lendys's allies consist of silver dragons, dragon golems, draconic formians, and inevitables. In fact, his herald is a contingent of four maruts that possess a singular, synchronized mind that allows them to act in perfect unison.
