- Graven Serpenthelm, Paladin of Cronin
Cronin is a noble warrior, strong in spirit and dedicated to justice. He is often depicted as an tired veteran after a long battle – with a straight back despite his limping body. To his worshipers he is a father figure who preaches love, courage, and the bonds of family and fellowship – to outsiders he is a stern arbiter of justice and law.
His church is strong in most civilized areas and is highly organized. In lawless areas, his faithful serve as judge, jury and executioner. In civilized places, they become legal experts, speaking for the accused and dispensing justice alike. They never enforce a law that can be shown to be unjust.
Clerics of Cronin are known as Lawbringers. They pray for their spells at dawn.
