Sometimes called the Mad God or the Prince of Fear, Anxi is a diminutive god with the head, arms, and torso of a man, and the legs, tail, and horns of a goat. Generally content to indulge in revelry, Anxi has a wicked streak and delights in sewing discord among those he deems uptight or in need of laughter. His tricks, however, tend to include collapsing buildings, arson, seducing wives and daughters, or tricking people into murdering their families. Unconcerned with mortals and their plights, Anxi is rarely accepted as worthy of worship, but when a new jar of wine is opened, a cup is always poured out to appease the trickster god. His faithful have few real clergy or priests, though what few do exist serve as guides for increasing mayhem and decreasing restfulness. Festivals of Anxi always take place at night, and usually involve loud piping and drumming. Faithful of Anxi carry a flute around their neck, and often paint their forehead and eyebrows to give the appearance of horns.
