Zehir was an apparent interloper deity who came to Toril around the time of the Spellplague[2][6] and took up residence in the Sea of Poison near Talona's realm in the Towers of Night.[7]

PersonalityEdit

His methods were aggressive, yet subtle. He liked his wishes to be carried out quietly, but boldly and did not forgive failure, though those who continued to please him could expect to be richly rewarded.[6]

WorshipersEdit

Zehiric clerics were called Venomers and he drew many worshipers from the ranks of the yuan-ti that were unhappy with the detachment of Sseth.[2] High-ranking clerics were referred to as "Low Priests".[8] In a society of snake men, being low was considered a positive attribute. The unholy gesture of Zehir was the sign of fangs.[9]

HistoryEdit

Zehir was Set, a member of another pantheon[10] who managed to join the Faerûnian one under a different name.

In 1374 DR, Zehir planned to take control of the Chultan Peninsula and the Sword Coast North. Adventurers defeated his herald, a powerfully built giant yuan-ti abomination wearing a headdress, and then got the chance to converse with the deity, appearing as two huge, red floating eyes set in scaly sockets and with feathery eyebrows. The voice that issued forth from this apparition was calm and confident. Despite the fact that his plan was ruined, he revealed that it was but one of many schemes that he was sponsoring all over the world.[6]

NotesEdit

  • Zehir is the Turkish word for "poison".
