Medjay - Scales of war
Tiamat is the evil god of wealth, greed, and envy. She is the patron of chromatic dragons and those whose lust for wealth overrides any other goal or concern.
She commands her followers to:
- Hoard wealth, acquiring much and spending little. Wealth is its own reward.
- Forgive no slight and leave no wrong unpunished.
- Take what you desire from others. Those who lack the strength to defend their possessions are not worthy to own them.
Legend has it that long ago during the War of Creation Tiamat and Bahamut were one and the same, a powerful dragon-god called Io.
Io created the dragons, great creatures of base metals, to protect the young races of the world against the primordials. Drawing power from the Elemental Chaos to power his creation, Io simultaneously linked them with the divinity of the Astral Sea to keep them rooted in the pursuit of justice and honor.
During a battle with the vicious primordial Erek-Hus, Io was split down the middle and from the two halves grew the twin dragon gods: Bahamut from the right side and Tiamat from the left. Io’s qualities were split between the two: his desire for justice and the protection of creation went to Bahamut, while his arrogance and greed were embodied in Tiamat.
