Malar (pronounced MAHL-arr), The Beastlord, is the lesser deity of the hunt, evil lycanthropes, bestial savagery, and bloodlust. His dogma concerns savage hunts, the spreading of the curse of lycanthropy, and general contempt for civilization.
Malarites believe that it is an honor to Malar to make one's killing bloody and long. His followers sometimes form in bands, called "Hunts". While forbidden to slay the young or the pregnant, Hunts typically follow his dogma and evok wanton slaughter in Malar's name. Malarites are generally frowned upon by civilization, as they tend to wreak havoc in their wake. One exception where the worship of Malar is allowed is in Cormyr.
One of the most respected servants of Malar was Garmos Saernclaws, who was responsible for the gospel of Saernclaws by which all priests of Malar were bound, ensuring that hunts remained clean and poison-free.
Malar is one of the Deities of Fury, led by Talos. He holds a long-standing alliance with Lolth against the Seldarine, and other dark deities like Bane and Loviatar. He fights against deities of peace, civilization, and nature, but held particular hate for Nobanion for defeating him in a battle during the Time of Troubles. Almost every other god hates him, including a number of other evil deities.
