History & Relationships: Not unlike his Forgotten RealmsTM counter-part, Hoar, Hastur is a extremely bitter entity. Though prone to lashing out in extreme acts of violence, he generally attempts to keep his temper at no more than a rolling boil. He is an extremely moody deity and as likely to severely punish as reward his worshippers.

Before Gods Fall Hastur was a much more even-handed deity, and often worked along side Aldamar. It was during the course of Gods Fall that he began to change. What exactly the events were that caused him to grow angry, bitter, and violent are unknown to all but him, and he refuses to discuss the matter.

Hastur has at best poor relations with most other deities. His outlook now often puts him at odds with Aldamar, but the two are still at least civil. Much of his time is spent in pursuit of ways to purge the pantheon of several deities; Darkjoye, Tykhoor and Vhokuun. His enmity for these three has its roots in the Gods Fall Wars, it is believed that they all wronged and/or cheated him in some way that he is simply unable or unwilling to forgive.
