Austuril Liadon was a mortal follower of the elflord Solonar, the soul survivor of his lineage, and the last known living silver elf. His adventuring life was spent seeking revenge on the dark elf cults after discovering that his family was sacrificed to Valotha the Venomous, at the time, worshiped by some as Valothwen The Lady of Tears. After decades of travelling with his companions, massive battles culminated with the death of multiple demi-gods, his patron deity Solonar included. Aust lead the Order of the Bow (Solonars former cult) into battle allied with Aragoth Hellslay and Dirk Dankil to defeat Valotha. After the battle the Order of the Bow turned to Liadon as their new patron and he bonded with both Solonar's spark of Gratitude and Valothwen's spark of Dispair, becoming the Lord of Retribution. Dirk accepted the Spark of Rage, becoming Dirk the Berserk. Aragoth declined a spark, viewing them as heretical to the Empyrean Church.
Liadon is considered the patron of copper elves and is one of the most commonly worshiped powers in the Silver Reach. His worship extends from Thessan to Olgun Quisir and even has individual worshipers in Findle. He has no organized church or hierarchy outside the Order of the Bow. Many who worship the Lord of Retribution do so for a very clear purpose.
The portion of himself that was Aust Silverfrond is now one of three. His strength of will allows him to retain Independence, but not constant control. His containment of two sparks and his high number of worshipers puts him on a level above most other hero-deities, however, his personality constantly shuffles between the solitary Hunter, the heartless Assassin and the grieving Priest, leaving him mentally crippled at times and less active in the world.
He is the current holder of the Spark of Despair and the Spark of Gratitude.
Liadon is famed as the wielder of the longbow Celebmeleth.
Liadon's father was a priest of Solonar named Evindal.
Order of the Bow
the Order is a faction of copper elf bounty hunters within the cult who enact acts of vengeance on behalf of Liadon. These copper elves consider such contracts to be holy crusades and heads collected through just acts of retribution are particularly prized by them.
