The Somnolent

Written by Ademal

The Somnolent is locus of power within the Church of The Somnolent. He rules from Ex Cinere, the city built atop the ruins of Jerusalem.
The Somnolent was visible for miles as his Projection overlay the cross-legged figure of the Somnolent. When he spoke, we felt it as much in our minds as with our ears, if not moreso.   Behold, thus forms the Somnacy. Built by your hard work, crafted by your hand, secured by your will. All I do is in service of humanity, and all I expect is faith.

—At the Edenic declaration of freedom

Rise to Power

The Somnolent's rise was one of the contributing factors to the Bannercasting. He rose from a disenfranchised people, and claimed that the Creator had spoken to him by granting him a great power and the responsibility to guide humanity.   The intensity of his proclamations, his status as a Sovereign, and his introduction of a type of meta nobody had seen before, Projections, inspired faith, allegiance, and zealotry.

When he isn't acting through a proxy, the Somnolent is a tall, muscular man, dark of skin and glowing white eyes and markings of his Affectations of Grace. His hair seems to pour constantly from his head like vapor, curling down over his shoulders before sweeping away in natural breeze.   His voice is deep, rich, resonous, and enchanting.
