Igon, the Sphinx of Canus[edit]

Igon, the Sphinx of Canus, is an entity venerated in Elsweyr.[1]


Ilni symbolizes the air in Tsaesci culture. She is said to own a colorful fan.[2]

Insect God[edit]

A deity whose name was lost to history, known only as the Insect God, was venerated by Flower King Nilichi. The Nedic Men-of-ge were eventually "destroyed" when the Flower King made a great sacrifice to this long-forgotten insect god.

Ius, God of Animals[edit]

Ius the Extremely Agitated is the God of Animals in some folklore, who has statues throughout Valenwood and parts of Hammerfell and Elsweyr. These statues depict Ius as a little misshapen humanoid carrying a rod with scales on each end.

The tale behind the rod he carries states that one day an evil farmer decided to kill all of his animals and have a big party. As the story unfolds, animal after animal is killed and prepared for a big meal. Lastly, the farmer comes to the ox and prepares to slit its throat. The ox, not wishing to be anybody's dinner, prayed very vocally (in the form of a moo) to Ius. Then, Ius appeared carrying a rather large set of balance weights and, without explanation, ate the farmer and vanished. Ever since that day, Ius has always been portrayed as carrying a large set of scales with him. Local Ius worshipers are said to neither know nor care about the reason behind the scales.


Ixtaxh-thtithil-meht (sometimes spelled Ixtaxh-thitithil-meht) is the Argonian aspect of Sithis, meaning Exact-Egg-Cracker in Jel.
