Apsu is the patron deity of all good and metallic dragons, and one of the oldest gods of the Great Beyond. Along with Tiamat, he is (at least according to draconic lore) believed to be one of the two original creator beings of the multiverse.[1]

Origins

It is said that Apsu and Tiamat created the original gods. One of the first was Dahak, the destroyer. Apsu entered the Material Plane to battle Dahak, but was betrayed by Tiamat. This created a rift between metallic dragons and chromatic dragons. The battle between Apsu and Dahak still rages upon Golarion today. Apsu is also numbered among the divine creatures which fought in the battle to defend all of creation against Rovagug. [2][3][4]

Church of Apsu

Unsurprisingly, most of Apsu's worshipers are metallic dragons, although honourable humanoids with an interest in draconic lore may also take up the faith.

Those handful of humanoid followers on Golarion typically wear a gold dragon’s foot brooch you wear at their heart their throat. Sometimes they also have other custom made equipment, also in the shape of a dragon's foot.[5] Apsu is more widely worshiped by humanoids on the planet Triaxus, where he is the patron deity of the Dragon Legion.[6]

Brass dragons, gregarious in the extreme, generally fill the role as Apsu's servants and diplomats, although few of them could be considered particularly devout. Nevertheless, they always come when they are needed.[7]
