True Identity of Reethna-Onatee
After leaving his mostly non-sentient family to explore the surface, Reethna-Onatee came to rest in Cheliax and became interested in the human god Aroden. The idea of a god with real plans and a future was very attractive when the deity you have been taught to warship all your life is literally a mindless rampaging giant. Aroden’s death and the subsequent takeover of Cheliax by Diabolists hit him hard and crushed his faith. He wandered aimlessly for many years, even briefly trying to rekindle a devotion to Ydersius. Finally he discovered Iomedae, who he felt represented many of the qualities he had seen in Aroden and decided to devote himself to her as much as possible. He knows that he has been living near the temple to Iomedae as Marcello Vicola for far too long (stupid humans and their short lifespans!), Marcello’s agelessness has past the point of being “well perserved” and started to become suspicious, but he cares for the humans who work there and doesn’t want to leave and have to start over somewhere else. Despite his misgiving about manipulating those who trust him, he has begun to use small amounts of suggestion to direct attention away from himself. Unfortunately, the return of Ydersius has taken the decision out of his hands.
