God of Fish and Fishers
Pescar was born as human in the year 21,567 in the small fishing town of Ejunt. By the age of 9 he could catch fish better than any village elder and it was decided that he must be able to use magic so he was sent to the magician’s college in Fort Carita. He studied there for many years but was not a very good student and eventually left.
Having failed Pescar didn’t want to return home, so he traveled until ending up in Colstog. There he signed onto a fishing vessel and within a year was renowned as the best fisherman in all the kingdom.
In the year 21,589 Pescar was approached by representatives of the Merchants Guild and told that if he could catch them a live mermaid then they would give him an immensely large amount of gold. Being so amazing, Pescar succeeded after only three months. But upon seeing such an innocent and beautiful creature he decided that he could not condone leaving her caged as there was no necessity for catching her. So he set the mermaid free.
The crew of the ship was outraged as Pescar had just cost them all lots of gold and they revolted and threw him into the ocean, days travel from the nearest shore. Pescar called out to Meermi, asking her to save him. Meermi responded, granting him incredible power as a boon for his kindness to the mermaid. This power turned him into a Demi-God.
Two weeks later when Pescar walked out of the ocean in the harbour of Colstog, people proclaimed his divinity and ordered the crew who had betrayed him to be executed. But Pescar stopped them. He stated that he would protect all fishers as long as they only fished for food, for he would also be protecting the fish. Pescar now resides at the bottom of Lake Derroche.
