Malarbor in Cedrism

In the Cedrist religion, Malarbor is the son of Lumina, Goddess of Light. His father is currently unknown, although this author speculates it may have been H'Graa, God of Wrath. He is the God of Forum Colors, and has recently been given the added portfolio of God of Smackdowns.

A myth, now lost, tells of a battle between Kaiser Raynor I and Malarbor. Malarbor was terrorizing the world by replacing its colors with different, more tasteless and garish shades. Kaiser Raynor I boldly set out and defeated the tree demon in single combat with the Sword of Vengeance, and, as a price for letting the god go, demanded that Malarbor stand guard over the public places of Shireroth, which the god has reluctantly done ever since. Especially popular is the Sanctum of Malarbor in the Yoni Temple Complex in Modan-lach. He has demanded that people pour milk on their fish to honor him as well as increase their nutritional intake.

Sun Children of Lumina

In Catologism Malarbor is seen as one of the more powerful demons of Micras. It is believed that Cato, King of the Council of Gods, impregnated Lumina while they both were drunk. Since than Lumina would have been the mistress of Cato, while both were unable to marry as Lumina was not found worthy enough to join the Council.

The tree demon grew up to be a dangerous demon that ravaged the land, until Kaiser Raynor I subdued him and demanded from him to stand guard for Shireroth. According to Cedrists, Malarbor reluctantly did this. Catologian sources, however, point out that Raynor had actually liberated Malarbor from the grasp of the Baishens, who wanted to use him to destroy the human world and eventually weaken his own father. To thank the Kaiser, he pledged to protect Shireroth till the day that he wouldn't be able to anymore.

Malarbor in Popular Culture

Malarbor is now one of Shireroth's most easily recognisable symbols. The Pacarians exploited this during a period seemingly leading up to a Shireroth/Pacary war, when graphics designer Sander Dieleman made a big scary propaganda picture of Malarbor with a caption reading something like "Do you want him as your neighbor?" More patriotic uses included his presence on several of Joseph Strong's advertising banners and the use as an image in Cedrist promotional materials.

The association of Malarbor with the Imperial Republic is such that its oracular, gnomic, and sometimes plain malevolent utterances, have achieved a level of credence normally associated with official press releases - albeit with more gore.

Malarbor Today

Malarbor's most recent manifestation has been The Periodic Spore, a news blog written primarily by Malarbor (though Benkern helps with some admin stuff). The Paper was originally started after Shireroth was believed dead to preserve this iconic figure of Shireroth, however when the nation inevitably came to, this blog started to become a news paper both for Shirerithians and keeping the outside world aware of Shirerithian affairs.
