Major God of Storms and the Angry Sea. A member of The Rhys-Callay. The father of Amaya and Aneko. Legend has it his daughters tried to flee his overprotective wrath, with Amaya successfully escaping to land, but Aneko being caught as she tried to scramble ashore. He has her imprisoned in his castle underneath the waves. He does not have very many formal priests (those that do exist are usually among the savage tribes, as few civilized towns tolerate the storm-summoning that is part of their worship), but does have a large number of people, mainly sailors and fishermen, that pay him respects, in hopes of averting or blunting his rage. According to stories, the harsh wind that scours Fla, an whistles down across the Western Waste an into Deston is Arashi’s breath, whittling away at the land his daughter used to escape his power, and griding down those who would dare to protect her.
