Rao [rā ō] is the neutral phoenix deity of knowledge and magic. Rao tends to stay out of the affairs of mortals entirely, except to observe them.
DescriptionRao is a red phoenix with rainbow tail-feathers.
PersonalityRao is known as an inquisitive entity, and is always seeking knowledge. Not too much more is known about his personality.
RealmsRao was originally from Horolgo, along with Uvdohr. While Rao was investigating The Knot, Ultima drove Uvdohr out and claimed Horolgo as her realm. Rao then set the Knot as his new nest.
WorshipersRao is worshiped by scholars and seekers of knowledge, as well as many alchemists and scientists. Much of the demographic of Rao's worship overlaps those of Ultima's, creating a rivalry in their followers.
RelationshipsRao does not have any direct adversaries, although he has some contempt for Ultima, who drove him out of Horolgo. He has an alliance with Atinueas and Uvdohr.
