Not as prominent as it once was, the church of Dyaus-Oter was the primary following of the Lath. Still today, particularly in the east, Dyaus-Oter still has a strong following. The eastern remnants of Lath, as well as Palis and Tianoku are very much devout to the ancient sky-god, and he is known to be active in assisting those who worship him, and more active in destroying those who insult him. Priests of Dyaus-Oter are often advisors to leaders or heroes, and as a god of the wind and sky, it is generally assumed that Dyaus-Oter sees all. Dyaus-Oter has a strong following among elves as well as humans.

Out of Game Information
Dyaus-Oter's name stems from the Vedic deity Dyaus, who is also known as the Sky Father. It is figured that Dyaus and Zeus were one in the same deity in early Indo-European Mythos, and as such Dyaus-Oter shares aspects with Zeus. Oter comes from the Greek "Soter", meaning Savior. Dyaus-Oter is meant to represent the sky and winds, and is largely worshiped by men and avian creatures.
