Ehrholt

God of Nature

Description:
Bio:

Quiet but extraordinarily powerful deity first attested on shards of pottery from sometime before 1A 1032 as a vague personification of the world or of nature.

Later stories recorded by the Third Generation and believed by more objective historians to be derived from that of Grimholt in style make clear that Ehrholt (Literally earth or dirt god) was thought of as one of the more dangerous, but fortunately quiescent gods of the world. Some traditions give him as the father of Talsifer, Airku, and other gods of aspects of the natural world, though this is clearly heresy. In the story, Sekeriah sees that Grimholt’s Dark Magic is unwieldy, strange, and dangerous when used without extreme care, and so decides that his people have need of more useful Magic. He therefore decides to extract a similar bargain from Ehrholt to the one he did from Grimholt. He attracts Ehrholt’s attention by burning down a great forest in the west of Feryngia (thereby also explaining the wide Yeorian- Peruvian plains) and then fights the enraged god. Their battle is given as the hardest Sekeriah ever fought, it is said they dueled with weapons and magic both for 100 days and 100 nights before Sekeriah used the Fire Emblem to finish the fight. Sekeriah then forced the mortally wounded Ehrholt to grant mortals his power in the form of Anima Magic and also to never again attack any human who interfered with the wilderness.

This is considered an extremely important event in history and religion and art depicting it is very common, since it symbolically marks the transition of the world to human ownership and domination.

The story is similar to those of both Grimholt and Skaihalth.
