Orlanth is the main god of the Rams, and father to their founding hero Vingkot. Worshippers of the Solar pantheon despise him for murdering their god Yelm, and call him the Rebel.

His wife is Ernalda, the primary earth goddess worshipped by the Rams. Vadrus is his brother.

Orlanth is sometimes called the god of freedom, although as your Clan Circle may point out, this does not prevent his worshippers from keeping or trading in slaves.
