Thayan is the god of wise and just rule. He is normally depicted as a wizened king seated on a great throne holding a rod of kingship in one hand and a chalice of peace in the other hand. His principles are Justice, Order and Peace. He represents proper and traditional rule and as such was once worshiped (at least with lip service) by all human royalty. He is the embodiment of the enlightened human caste system where each person fairly has their place in a lawfully ordered society aimed at the good of all people. His priests wear white robes trimmed with silver, purple or gold, the colors of kingship. His symbol is a silver cross on a white field, symbolizing the upturned cross-haft of his sister's sword, which he thrust into the earth to end the god's war.

Upon seeing the blood of so many gods shed, Thayan foreswore the use of swords and his priests, for this reason, may not use bladed weapons. Many favor reinforced rods, similar to light maces, modeled after Thayan's own rod of kingship. The noble eagle and lion are his sacred creatures.
