Domidius


Domidius is an idealist. He believes absolutely in the power of love to conquer obstacles, tear down walls, end conflicts and save the world. Eternally optimistic, he goes to great lengths to ignore negative consequences and failed relationships, and continues to encourage even the most unlikely and star-crossed lovers.



Relationships
In general, the other gods find Domidius pleasant but naive. Reactions to his optimism and idealism range from condescension to severe annoyance, though even Janus and Invidia can’t bring themselves to hate him. For his part Domidius seems oblivious of any negative feelings and considers all of the gods to be friends.



Appearance
Domidus appears to be a middle-aged human of average comeliness, with tanned skin and sparkling blue eyes. He wears his dark hair pulled back into a pony tail, and dresses in a simple white tunic and sandals, occasionally paired with bead necklaces or headbands. His lined face is rarely without a serene smile.



Church of Domidius

Domidius’ church holds the belief that love is the single most important thing in the world. They hold the importance of love above any financial, political, or even legal concerns. They aid in bringing together parted lovers, assisting forlorn admirers, sheltering those who would be torn apart by their families or society, and counseling couples who are having trouble. They understand love sometimes ends, but see it only as an opportunity to find a new love.

Worshippers and Clergy
Domidius’ followers tend to be young idealists who have not yet grown cynical, though some manage to continue to believe in love and most of his clergy are middle-aged men and women. His clergy dress much like their god, in simple tunics, sandals and beads.

Temples and Shrines
Domidius’ temples are usually built outside of cities and typically consist of a single, large wood building surrounded by sprawling gardens. The attending clergy live in semi-permanent tents and yurts in married couples and groups scattered through the grounds, while the main building is used for meals, services and meetings.

Small shrines, which generally take the form of a chalice with a string of beads wrapped around the stem, are common in homes and are frequent wedding gifts. They are traditionally placed just inside the front door.
