Other Notes: The Crowfather considers all ravens, rooks, crows, raitons, buzzards, vultures, and other carrion birds to be subordinate spirits for all effects, including the Mandate of Subordination. His Manse is the Rookery, a sand-blasted tower in the South, covered in skulls and carrion birds.
God of Ravens, Crows, and Carrion Birds, the Crowfather is a crotchety but powerful god who dwells in the South, near Chiaroscuro. The Crowfather is an ancient god, subordinate to the Bureau of Nature, who chooses to spend much of his time in his manse in Creation. He commands all carrion birds, crows, and their ilk, and dwells in the Rookery, a tower manse in the White Desert south of Chiaroscuro. He serves as mentor to Nekhbet, and has recently become entangled in the politics of the Sepulchral Pharaoh Amid Stygian Dunes, a Southern Deathlord who has offered him significant power in the Underworld for his assistance in Creation. Since those dealings have recently turned very nasty, the Crowfather hopes his association with Nekhbet and her new friends will keep him safe from retribution. Like most ravens, he is obsessed with shiny things and tends not to want to give up that which he considers his.
