Haššiw is a Zeribian good of moon and commerce. They represent the dualism of the moon's black and white phases, and the dualities in humans, like male-female and noble-commoner.   They are one of the most popular deities of the Zeribian pantheon, and especially revered as their patron deity by the third gender Šyrzir (Zeribian 3rd gender).

Divine Domains

Haššiw is the god of the moon, and because of the association between the shape of the crescent moon and a canoo, also the protector of sailors. They are the god of moonlight and shade, and can guide a safe travel uninterrupted by criminals or other unwanted attention.   He is also the protector of commerce for multiple reasons. First of all the Zeribian traders travel primary on water. Secondly the moon symbolism was also associated to the Silver Crescent coinage from Crescent (city state), which has become a popular souveneir and protective amulet of traders.

This is really interesting. I like the idea of the dual nature of the moon also reflecting those of men-women, noble-commoner.
