Goddess of Darkness
The goddess of darkness was created alongside her sister Selûne as the first forms able to act. The two represented one half each of the spectrum - one bright, one dark. They complimented each other and needed each other. But when Selûne wanted to create life rather than let everything remain in pleasant darkness, Shar saw this as an attack on her and what she stood for. As a result, the two of them fought in what came to be known as the Dawn War. These days Shar doesn't just represent darkness, but also the secrets that might hide in it. Including the secrets in the hearts of people.
Darkness, secrets, treachery
Tenets of Faith
- Everything should be kept in the dark. The things brought to light should only be so because of the potential to sink something else deeper into the dark.
- Never completely trust anyone, they could turn on you at any time.
- Bringing things to the light carries creat temptation, but will ultimately result in disappointment.
Many devotees of Shar celebrate the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year.
