All water, in its progression to join the ancient oceans of its origin, is forever adaptable, changing itself into a multitude of shapes and forms to best serve the moment. Yet water contains many facets, it can be as calm as a gentle stream, or rage like the maelstrom and destroy all that venture into it. The element of water must be respected, for its mood is always apt to change to suit the moment.
As is water, so is the Deity whom presides over its forces. Long had Lord Slyphe slumbered deep in the depths of the ocean, meditating, growing, evolving. Now He has returned, grown weary of the apathy and procrastination that has claimed much of the realm. Angered by the decline of Progress, He seeks to drown out the negative of the realm, and with Wrath He will make His distaste known for all those who have betrayed Progress.
The boundless spirit of the water element is made manifest in the form of Lord Slyphe, the Maelstrom, deliberate in His actions with mortal and immortal alike, yet constantly shifting and changing to suit His aims. Quick tempered and vengeful, He broods upon no act with fear of reprisal or harsh judgment. In the halls of the Lord's temple, His followers are heralded as champions of progress, and duly rewarded in their service to their liege.
