dis pater, god of the underworld, solitary figure, divinities


Author: Obsidian

(lord, master). Irish

A God of the underworld, and of the dead. Associated territorially with western Munster. The Romans recognized him as an aspect of their own Dis Pater. Expectedly enough from his attributes, He is a silent and solitary figure, unusual enough among the often tumultuous and extroverted Irish divinities.
