One of the four Elemental Gods who were said to be powerful elementals promoted to divine rank, Hypezokos is a giant made of the burning flames of his natural home. He is easily mistaken for an elemental, if not for his size and vaguely reptilian features. The Elemental Gods do not have much to do with the material plane except by followers of the elements themselves. Instead he is worshiped by beings from or near the elemental plane itself. He controls the scorching or comforting glare of the sun, the broiling or warming bubble of the magma below, the humble campfire and the raging wildfire.
The Elemental Gods in general speak little of dogma, beyond expounding on the natures of their elements. Fire is the untamable beast of the elements, always seeking to move out and consume. Strength is valued by his followers, though it is not necessarily physical strength.
Clergy and Temples
Elementals and the occasional druid worship the God of Fire. His temples are built of stone and iron, and its flames inside are always kept burning to honor the god of flame.
The Shaqti venerate the god Hypezokos as their patron god, he protects them in The Cinderlands, and sees their souls to the afterlife when their mortal body has fallen and been reduced to ash.
