Little is known of Kreysneothosies before his appearance just after the Sundering, appearing to rally the scattered Tsarven armies to victory. Again, during the First Kinnesaruda War of 421-424SG he appeared to turn the tide of war, battling Intruder himself, though the death knight was believed to have proven too strong. For more than seven centuries, he has been upheld as the guardian of the Tsarven Empire and its emperor. During the Silence of 737SG, he was again sighted in the skies above the Tsarven armies, acting as a rallying force to inspire them against their foes. In the final battle across the outpost of Azha, he was sighted at wing above the city, in pursuit of the injured stormlord Talos. A later ritual among the highest of the Tsarven elite, along with the most senior of the faithful, revealed that the dragon Kreysneothosies and the immortal Tsarven Emperor were one and the same, and assured his ascension into the new pantheon as protector of all civilized lands.
Followers of the Golden Protector make active efforts to purge undead creatures wherever they are found, seeing them as a threat to all civilized settlements.
Followers of the Golden protector seek to banish all outside influence related to shadow creatures, demons and devils, including those who have their blood tainted by these influences. Followers also typically detest Fey outsiders or those with fey blood, seeing them as chaos incarnate. Devas and greater celestials, such as Archons are revered by this faith.
Ceremonial vestments for both genders consist of a white serwal, covered by a black thawb robe. The collar should bear a long v-shaped cut down the front, and be lined the full length of that cut with a thick, stiffened golden collar. A matching circlet of gold is worn by all senior priests.
In all matters, uphold what is just and fair, and never betray your trust. Seek the truth, and use it to right wrongs and punish transgressors. Protect your home, your homeland, and your temple, and defend your brothers and sisters in arms. Heed and obey the wisdom of the law and your leaders, for it is only with respect given to righteous authority that civilization can be upheld. Be vigilant in your observations and anticipations, to detect corruption and chaos before they can threaten the order of society. Deliver vengeance to the guilty for those who cannot do it themselves.
