Cernunnos is a mercurial azata empyreal lord who stealthily ventures through the forests of the Great Beyond. The Stag Lord aims to set right natural balances that are out of kilter and indulge in his passions.[1][2]

Cernunnos favors decisive action and, though he rarely makes a rash decision, he will sometimes let his anger overcome him and descend himself into Hell or the Abyss to exact revenge on demons and devils he has a personal vendetta for. Cernunnos is a wise and powerful Empyreal Lord and is thought to be almost a god.

History

Cernunnos was one of the first being the Fey Lords created and he was the first one to leave the First World. When war comes to the outer planes Cernunnos is usually counseling action and decisive moves, while his counterpart, Korada, is usually counseling caution.

Relationships

Cernunnos gets along well with most deities and demi-gods, but evil deities are treated with distrust. Cernunnos is a powerful supporter of Desna, as well as all of the other nature gods and most of the good gods too.

Realm

Cernunnos lives in Briarbough, a demi-plane connected to Elysium. It is filled with trees and bears a strong resemblance to the First World.

Appearance

Cernunnos presents himself as a muscular elf with dull fur clothes that bear drawings of birds in flight or leaping animals.

Church of Cernunnos

The faithful of Cernunnos are mainly intelligent plant creatures, fey, and mortal rangers.
