The Pantheon of Sen-Rab
This is a list of the prominent gods of Hyparica's Sen-Rab's religion. The Khira is believed to be part of this pantheon within Sen-Rab, but not in Hyparica. The gods are usually depicted as animal-headed and human bodied. Some are merely versions of the animal itself. This is by no means a complete list, and I may add to it in the future.
Ilaxas: The Iguana (Prosperity and Wealth)
Ilaxas is god of Plenty. Ilaxis is the one who holds domain over what you own and what you receive. Prosperity and fortune is his domain and when gambling many Sen-Rabbins call on his name to aid the fall of the dice. In tales, Ilaxas is known as a generous and friendly god, handing out gifts and gold to the poor.
Vazzaz: The Mosquito (Excess and consumption)
Vazzaz is the goddess of consumption, wine and excess. She is responsible for Alcohol and luxurious food, but is also considered to be responsible for the poor actions those take under her influence. Stories of her are often about her buzzing into town with food and wines under the pretense of good-will, and after she buzzes out, she leaves the townsfolk to drink to excess and end up destroying their own village in a drunken stupor.
Pollaxis: The Scorpion (Sleep, Dreams and sickness)
A two-edged god, Pollaxis's domain lies in both restful sleep and also in illnesses. To the Sen-Rabbins, sleep and dreams are thought of as 'the place between'. In other words, in sleeping, one stands with one foot in life and one in death. Pollaxis is the custodian of 'the place between'. In stories, Polaxis is spoken of as a mysterious god, and the one who decides on which end of 'the place between' you end up. When your time is done, Pollaxis ushers your soul to Rami-Nox, the Goddess of death.
Rami-Nox: The Anaconda (Lust and Death)
Rami-Nox is a feared goddess. She is the goddess of Lustful deeds and is responsible for the attraction you feel to others, but she is also the goddess who holds domain over the Under-Land. Sen-Rabbins believe that is she who is the one that takes your soul when you pass. When your time is come, she wraps herself around your soul and drags it slowly beneath the swamp in her embrace to wait in the Under-Land for the next life.
Grevia: The Panther (Power and Fury)
Grevia is the Panther-headed god of Strength. He is the avatar of battle and violence and many call on him to aid them in combat. Tales of Grevia usually tell of him appearing at the fore-front of a great war, turning the tides of the battle for Sen-Rabbins.
Moa-Moa: The Crocodile (The Swamp. Lord of the Land)
Lord of the Swamp, with few to challenge is the crocodile. Likewise is Moa-Moa the god of Sen-Rab land. It is he who decides when it is time to flood, when crops should flourish and then they should be drowned out. Moa-Moa's often said to stalk the Nyhaul river, guarding the land against outsiders.
Rup-Tup: The Toucan (Fools, Humor, Laughter)
Rup-Tup is the Toucan-headed god of laughter, humor and all around silliness. Thought of as a foolish god by the others in the pantheon, Rup-Tup is nevertheless well-loved by many Sen-Rabbins. After all, if one cannot laugh, what do they have to look forward to in life? In stories, Rup-Tup is often the comedic relief, getting up to all sorts of mischief and causing all sorts of trouble.
Oorikas: The Frog (Growth, coming of age, experience)
Oorikas is the goddess that is responsible for growth: of body, soul and mind. She is the teacher and the one who guides the youth into adulthood. Stories of Oorikas usually have her appear at a pivotal point in someone's life, offering an insight which leads them into becoming a better person.
Kiris: The Parrot (Freedom and Joy)
The Parrot is the embodiment of freedom - able to spread it's wings and fly away from trouble. Kiris is the goddess that holds dominion over this. To be free is to be happy, and Kiris also represents joy. Slaves and prisoners often call to Kiris to show mercy on them and carry them away.
Feny-sa-Roa: The Ant (Community, Strength in numbers)
Feny-sa-Roa is the ant-headed god of the community. Feny-sa-Roa's influence is present in most of daily life with Sen-Rab in small ways; in the aiding of friends and in working together to accomplish a great task.
