Armo

Armo has the same youthfully handsome facial features as his twin brother Kosto, but his nature is completely opposite. Dressed in flowing blue-and-white robes, hair a cascade of frothing springwater, he stands calm and serene, his arms open to embrace. His eyes are like mountain lakes, placid and welcoming. He is usually depicted carrying the silver Chalice of All Heals.

Armo abhors suffering, and does whatever he can to relieve it wherever it can be found. But for all his endless mercy he is no fool, but always mindful of long-term consequences. He understands that not all can be helped, and must be prioritized: to assist an oppressor makes one party to the suffering of the victims. Sometimes compassion dictates that suffering be ended not with balm and poultice, but with the edge of a knife. As this attitude makes for a slippery slope in terms of morals, the cult of Armo emphasizes personal responsibility, thoughtfulness and careful consideration. Armo’s clerics are required to exhibit these traits, which makes them less common than people would like. Due to his emphasis on patience and compassion with forethought, he is venerated by many judges, healers and all who seek surcease of suffering.
