From his flaming chariot, Pallas guides the course of the sun in the sky. He is the twin brother of Sylvia, and for all her secrecy, Pallas revels in attention and adoration. Ever pursuing a new adventure, Pallas ride his chariot over Calopius to look for new challenges and battles every day. The golden vessel is leashed to a team of a dozen flaming horses, and from their fire Pallas can unleash his great flaming arrows that inspire heroes, heal his champions, and burn away the wicked. When untouched by flame, his arrows that have their tips made of an iron from the days of the titans inflict in mortal bodies contagions and plague. Cities fear little more than the Plague-Bearer’s retribution, and so build outdoor statues to the glory of the sun and perform songs of praise to the light of the Sunbow. Every city has a wide temple of the twins, with an altar of Pallas on the eastern end and an alter to Sylvia to the west. His statues, covered in polished bronze or burnished gold, depict him on one knee, aiming and arrow skyward. Once in a great while, the sun and moon coincide and the light disappears from the sky. On these instances, when Pallas and his sister meet for their rare moments, they undertake some great quest together, and monsters quake in fear. High priests of both Pallas and Sylvia have spent lifetimes charting when these eclipses will occur, and prepare their greatest heroes to lead a day long battle against the beasts. Clerics, rangers, and even a rare few paladins swear allegiance to the Lord of Light and Song, carrying bows of their own and hoping to someday earn the favor of the Sunbow enough to be gifted the use of one of the offspring of the Solar Stallions as his champion. Ever the wanderers in their own right, the clergy of Pallas who are not temple attendants spend their days moving from city to city, protecting travelers and maintaining lanterns and torches that keep roadside shrines lit in the darkness.
