The Legacy of Fire
Nethys is a god who holds magic above all things. As a mortal wizard/king of Ossirian he achieved enough arcane power to cast a spell to witness all things, and this both fueled his divinity and shattered his mind. He is a god of magic and paradox, torn between destroying the world with one hand and saving it with the other.
Although his madness makes it hard to act on long-term plans Nethys is active and approachable by all deities for aid in their ventures. He remains neutral for the most part, unless his powers of omnipresent knowledge reveal he is being betrayed or threatened. He particularly allies with those requiring the use of magic, regardless of nefarious or benevolent cause.
Despite his indifference, there is one area where Nethys will never act, and that is to support followers of Rovagug in freeing their master. There are limits even to Nethys’s love of destruction, and the annihilation of Golarion is not his wish. Gorum and Nethys share a mutual appreciation. As Irori and Nethys are the only mortals to have ascended to deity status without the aid of the Starstone, Nethys has a special interest in the Master of Masters.
