Kossuth

Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Kossuth (pronounced koh-SOOTH), or the Lord of Flames is the greater deity of elemental fire. Kossuth is symbolized by the holy symbol of a twining red flame and his portfolio covers elemental fire and purification through fire.

As a primordial god Kossuth rarely, if ever, communes with those who worship him, though tends to do so more than the other elemental deities. A possible result of this is that the church of Kossuth is rather hierarchical and seem somewhat impersonal. Their aims tend to revolve around the acquiring of land, power and wealth. These followers and clerics are often of the lawful neutral alignment.

Compared to the many other gods of Faerun, Kossuth and the three other Elemental Primordials are well known for their relative silence when it comes to communication with their worshipers. However, of the four, Kossuth is the most active and vocal.

Many Red Wizards of Thay worship Kossuth, and the Flaming Brazier of Eltabbar is supposedly the largest temple of Kossuth in all the realms.
