The Lion God is one of the two greatest deities in the Detinan pantheon and is the most widely worshiped and sacrificed to. Like all the Detinan gods, he lives on a mountain beyond the sky. His physical manifestation is a heroic male human body with the head and tail of a lion and claws on his hands and feet. Like all the great gods of Detina, he seems to be rather withdrawn from human affairs, though both the pious (such as Leonidas the Priest) and the self-important (such as Bell, who may have met the Lion God and the Thunderer in a vision in which he was promised command of the Army of Franklin, or may instead have hallucinated the entire affair under the influence of laudanum) believe he is actively providing them with special protection. However, the Lion God favored King Avram to the point that he performed miracles for those who invoked Avram's name in prayer.
