Valmallos is a primal inevitable who regulates magic, ensuring it is inaccessible to those who fail to put sufficient practice and training to use it with responsibility. He is partly responsible for the complex array of spell components so prevalent in magic.[1]

Cults

Valmallos typically approves of wizards, and he and his devotees are wary of those born with the ability to use magic, to the point of prejudice. Other spellcasters are judged on a case-by-case basis, depending how responsibly they used their powers in the past.[1]

Valmallos views his worshippers less as worshippers and more as students whom he can teach about how to complicate magic and render it inaccessible to the irresponsible. His priests often spend long times teaching apprentices, and hunt them down at any hint of misconduct.[1]
