“The Creed of the Shield: “The world is a dangerous place that poses a never-ending series of challenges to those who fight for justice and protection of the weak and innocent. One must act honorably at all times, and uphold the virtues of justice and chivalry in word and deed. Danger must be faced with certainty and calm, and glory is the reward for defeating evil, while virtue is the reward for upholding the tenets of Heironeous.”

BACKGROUND
Heironeous (hi-ROE-nee-us) is the Oeridian battlefield champion. He is the champion of rightful combat and chivalrous deeds. Likewise, he is the deity of those who fight for honor and strive for order and justice. Heironeous often leaves the Seven Heavens in order to move around the Prime Material Plane, aiding heroic causes and championing Chivalric causes. He wages war against evildoers, criminals, rogue nations, humanoids, and especially against his half-brother and nemesis, Hextor.

He is tall, with coppery skin, auburn hair, and amber eyes, and wears fine chain. At his birth, Heironeous’ mother, Stern Alia, imbued his skin with a secret solution called Meersalm that protects him from all but the most powerful weapons.

Known for his great magic battleaxe, which shrinks to one-twentieth of its normal five-foot length, or back to full size, upon Heironeous’ willing such. Thus, in another guise, his weapon is not noticeable. In addition to his physical attacks, Heironeous can loose a bolt of energy drawn from the Positive Material Plane.
