A dark god who represents the terror of the deep, Narlan’s head is that of a barracuda. He is the son of Ruiloth and the great serpent Maer. From him come sea monsters to terrorize mortals who make their living by the sea. It is said that Narlan is an eater of children’s souls, and when an infant or child dies, Surin and Narlan fight over his or her soul. Surin always wins when he has his halberd Banebreaker and his magic gauntlets, but in one legend the god Vass tricked him into lending him the gauntlets and Narlan was able to take the halberd (which was later stolen back by Nathu, who disguised himself as a child so Narlan would try to eat him and so drop the halberd). Narlan is the patron of pirates and is especially worshipped by the evil locathah who live off the western shores of Nalliana.
