Heironeous "Arch-paladin": God of War, Chivalry, Justice and Valor. He is the younger twin brother of Hextor. His alignment is Lawful Good, though his followers come in all shades between Lawful Good and Chaotic Neutral. His creed is a simple one, to take a stand against cruelty, tyranny and evil everywhere. His main influence in the world is based out of the Stazunian nation Toranika, with his religious order there being called the Golden Wardens. But Heironeous's influence is not merely limited there, he has followers across the world. Many of the River Kingdoms favor him, namely Leareum, Tholes and Resava. He is favored in Mergor and the Vulaxan Plains between the many warbands, tribes and hordes who eke out a living there. It is rumored that one of the nations near the Sozan Plains worships Heironeous, but this is unconfirmed at best. He is one of the few remaining "Good" aligned Gods left in Dihat.
