Nerull is the Flan god of Death, Darkness, Murder, and the Underworld. Worshiped on countless worlds, he is known as the Reaper, the Foe of All Good, the Hater of Life, and the Bringer of Darkness. His symbol is a skull and a scythe.
Nerull's faithful believe they will be rewarded for acts of murder, for every living thing is an abomination in the eyes of the Reaper. Ordinary folk do not worship Nerull, although they fear him greatly. It is believed that any appeasement will merely draw his attention, which should be avoided at all costs. Among the Flan and in the Old Faith, Nerull is sometimes considered the god of winter.
Clerics of Nerull are feared throughout the lands as cold, calculating murderers. When not in disguise, they are secretive, often solitary, and dress in the rust-red hue of their god. Those who would become priests of Nerull must undergo an arduous initiation that climaxes in being buried alive for a time.
