Soralyon is an angel empyreal lord who watches over sacred monuments and keeps magic secrets, which he shares with a deserving few.12

Home

Soralyon watches over the Maelstrom from his post at the Steward's Stone in Nirvana.2

Appearance

Soralyon appears as a man carved of the purest black marble, and has also been depicted in art in numerous different colours. His form always glimmers softly from within.1

Relationships

Due to his willingness to intercede when mortals seek to uncover (even unwillingly) dangerous monuments or ancient lore, Soralyon is sometimes at odds with preservationists like Bharnarol or caretakers of the Great Library of Harmonious Scripture.1

Cults

Guardians of ancient sites, particularly self-appointed ones, usually pray to Soralyon for strength and perseverance so they may continue their vigil. He is also worshipped by prudent, good-aligned researchers.13

Holy symbol

Soralyon's holy symbol is a crooked spire of stone covered in strange, astronomical writings.1

On Golarion

Soralyon is one of the empyreal lords worshiped in the Varisian city of Magnimar, particularly by the runeguards, who seek to reclaim the knowledge of the seven virtues of rule that once powered Thassilonian rune magic before it was corrupted by the runelords.24
