Dogma

Cadmus is a tolerant god who is interested in healing wounds and ailments of the spirit as well as the body. He preaches peace, forgiveness, and justice over revenge. He urges his followers to make peace where they can and to help those who have strayed atone for their misdeeds. He does not tolerate willful acts of evil, however, and has no patience with unrepentant criminals. He has a very low opinion of thieves and those who make their livings dishonestly (It is said that no falsehood has ever passed his lips). He advocates stern penalties for outlaws. Cadmus urges his followers to be bold and relentless when facing evil, but also to remember to have compassion for the victims of evil and to take time to appreciate the finer things in life, especially music.

History

Cadmus is the fourth god created by Alleria

It was Cadmus who first taught people the healing art. While generally benevolent and helpful, he can be truly terrible when angry, often loosing arrows that visit disease and death on targets they strike. He is quite vain about his musical prowess.

Cadmus and Pennsilia have created Gavet and Caine on their union. This shows that even the gods have strange bedfellows.
