Irori (pronounced ih-ROHR-ee) is the god of enlightenment, self-perfection, knowledge, healing and inner strength. His followers claim that he was once a mortal who achieved absolute physical and mental perfection and thus attained divinity of his own volition. He is one of the core gods of, if not the most powerful deity of, the Vudrani pantheon.
Stories told in the Azvadeva Pujila recount Irori’s quest for enlightenment and ultimate ascension to divinity. Irori makes his home on the plane of Axis, in a realm called the Serene Circle.
Irori respects that other deities are different spiritual beings and that what is correct for him may not be so for them. As such, he tries to avoid interfering with other divine beings, unless they threaten his work or his people. He has particularly good relationship with Abadar, and has an ongoing feud with Asmodeus. A minor rivalry exists between his faith and those of Cayden Cailean, Iomedae, and Norgorber, as he considers their rise to deity status as cheating. Despite this tension with Iomedae, followers of her faith allow paladins of Irori to train in their Tempering Hall in Absalom. Cayden Cailean, however, finds Irori “stuffy”. Erastil respects Irori but has his usual philosophical niggles about Irori’s “selfishness”.
