Kroni

Perhaps the most enigmatic of Prota's brothers, Kroni is regarded as being the most impassive and unemotional of all of the elder Divines. His domains of interest are time, ageing and autumn and he regards everything within the mortal and divine worlds as simply being part of the great passage of time.

Divine Domains

  • Time
  • Ageing
  • Autumn

Common Worshipers

  It is uncommon to find people who regularly worship, or exclusively worship Kroni, with most of those that one does discover being the god’s own clerics. However, Kroni is a deity that people will tend to worship at specific times of their lives, such as when in the throws of old age themselves, or when they petition for more time to complete a task. However, Kroni is notoriously impassive and it is extremely rare for him to grant petitions to people either wanting more time, or to not be affected by old age.   Most commonly people worship Kroni at the beginning of his associated season, autumn, to ask for mild weather whilst they harvest their crops and a gentle transition into the season of winter.  

Priesthood

  Despite not being the most popular of deities, Kroni does have a fair number of clerics dedicated to him. Most of them work in communities caring for the needs of the elderly, a task that they view as being an act of worship of their god. Priests and priestesses of Kroni will tend to learn their craft from other serving clerics, rather than going to a dedicated temple space, as there are few temples specifically dedicated to Kroni (see below).  

Temples

  Kroni’s divine domains and concerns mean that he has few temples specifically dedicated to him, as there are few who actually seek out places to worship him. He is most often worshipped in sacred groves at the beginning of autumn, with no specifically built infrastructure by communities that wish to petition for a mild autumn and a good harvest.   The houses for the elderly that Kroni’s clerics maintain across the world generally only have a shrine dedicated to the god of ageing within them, rather than full on temple spaces. This is principally because they are spaces where people come to be cared for in a natural and necessary part fo their lives, rather than a space where ageing and the passage of time are celebrated.  

Activities in the Divine War

  His impassivity means that unlike his brother, Astartes and Polephemon, he has not engaged in the Divine War and has remained neutral throughout. However, just as he has declined to join one of the sides to fight, he has also declined to act as an arbiter, instead choosing to ignore the conflict all together.
