Xerbo is the Suel god of the Sea, Sailing, Money, and Business. His holy symbol is a dragon turtle.


Xerbo is depicted as a large man with matted, kelp-like hair, wearing armor made from a dragon turtle's scales. He wields a trident called Murky Deep.


Xerbo is married to the sea-goddess Osprem, and is depicted as being a rival to both Procan and Zilchus.




Xerbo is worshipped by Suel peoples across the Flanaess, especially the Lordship of the Isles, the Sea Princes, and Sunndi. He is also revered by the Suel barbarians of the Thillonrian Peninsula (the Frost, Ice, and Snow Barbarians), primarily in his role as a sea-god.

In the waters off the shore of the ruins of Cantona on the Wild Coast is Narhidveh, a village of malenti who live a comparatively peaceful existence, worshiping Xerbo rather than the sahuagin god Sekolah. The name Narhidveh is Sahuagin for "Home of the Cursed."


Temples to Xerbo are found throughout the lands where he is worshipped. Notable temples include a joint temple in Greyhawk City co-dedicated to Osprem, and Sasserine's Azure Cathedral, where his faith has been combined with those of Osprem and Procan.
