Caoimhin (pronounced "koo-ev-inn," meaning "kindly") is the killmoulis deity of food and shy friendship. His symbol is a tiny bowl and pin.

Description

Caoimhin appears as a typical killmoulis; that is to say, he is a large-nosed, mouthless brownielike creature only a foot in height. He wears gossamer armor covered in thick woolen rags to help him keep warm. He grumbles nervously from time to time.

Relationships

Caoimhin is part of the Outer Circle of the Seelie Court, but Queen Titania loves him as much as any member of her Inner Circle. She is over-protective of him, mollycoddling and mothering him despite his feigned annoyance.

Realm

Caoimhin dwells in the Seelie Court realm, which wanders between the planes of the Beastlands, Arborea, and Ysgard. He rarely ventures out, except during his sudden fits of curiosity, but he will not do this without one of the other members of the Court nearby to protect him.

Dogma

Caoimhin likes warm clothing, plentiful food, bardic poetry, and harmonious music, especially that played on stringed instruments. He is a creature of creature comforts, shy and introverted. However, he will fight bravely for himself or his people. He is a strongly moral being, in his fey way, and he will not desert his people if they are attacked in his presence or that of his avatar, nor will he desert one of his friends in need.

Worshippers

Caoimhin is revered by his people, the killmoulis.
