Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
The Strife Bringer and Manslayer, Anyu is the god of warriors and conflict. Pythos shaped Anyu from his liver. Anyu resides in the edge of a sharp blade, a spray of a man’s blood, and the frenzy of battle when nothing remains but to kill one’s opponent. Once he danced along the blades and spears in battle, raised up just before the downward kill stroke, touching warriors with madness; but now any madness a soldier feels is entirely his own doing and no longer can men blame the god for the atrocities they commit during battle.
Statues depict Anyu as four armed man covered from head to toes with plates of metal; each of his four hands holds a sword.
