Ŗadev is god of Air, Weather, and Music and the twin brother of Oŗoros
. Of all the gods, he is the one most lacking focus. It's not unusual to find him wandering aimlessly, playing his flute.

Control the wind, from a brief gust to an outright tornado.
Control the weather. His flute has power of its own (mortal can use it to an extent) but it merely is a reflection of Ŗadev's power over the weather. He can, in fact, bring a hurricane down to bear on the desert sands.
His music always sounds beautiful. And anyone who plays music with or even near him plays the best they ever have. Ŗadev can also reverse this, but rarely does.
Ŗadev has a flute that can control the weather. If a happy tune is played, depending on the season, it can ensure a bright, sunny day; or a day with a light snowfall. If a sad tune is played, the bright, sunny day can turn dreary or the snow to sleet. If an angry tune is played, the dreary day can turn into a downpour mixed with hail or the sleet to an outright ice storm. Or anything kind of weather that might reflect one's mood. Luckily for the people he encounters, Ŗadev is generally in a cheerful mood. Or a contemplative one, which is generally neutral according to the flute.
Ŗadev usually has very little focus. He rarely has a guiding goal. Hence his tendency to just wander about, playing music. Granted, he usually is also spreading good cheer, but that's just a side effect of his generally upbeat mood.
Ŗadev enjoys psychedelic experiences and has a stash of a powerful psychedelic drug that affects his god-level metabolism. If a mortal were to sample even a very small amount of this drug their reality would be forever changed.
Valak sees Ŗadev as too capricious and Ŗadev sees Valak as too old and stodgy.
Nép truly dislikes Ŗadev's lack of solidity. Of course, Ŗadev can't imagine being so boring as his sister.
Nylvor and Ŗadev have very similar outlooks on life: they both just let things happen around them and react, or not, depending on their mood. As such they are kind of peas in a pod. But they also both see their own flaws in the other. As such, they can only be around each other for a limited time. Ŗadev also does not appreciate Nylvor's self-important storytelling. But with Nylvor's constant willingness to pitch in and help with problems, his exageration of his deeds can be overlooked.
