Atar is a member of the Yazatas once worshiped by the people of ancient Persia (modern Iran).


Atar possesses the conventional physical attributes of the Devas or Hindu gods. Like all Devas, he is extremely long-lived, but he is not immortal like the Olympian gods. He has not aged at an extremely slow rate since reaching adulthood and cannot die by any conventional means. He is immune to all Earthly diseases and is resistant to conventional injury. If he were somehow wounded, his godly life force would enable him to recover with superhuman speed. It would take an injury of such magnitude that it dispersed a major portion of his bodily molecules to cause him a physical death. Even then, it might be possible for a god of significant power, such as Varuna, Mitra or Vishnu for a number of Hindu or Persian gods of equal power working together to revive him. Atar also possesses superhuman strength and his Deva metabolism provides him with far greater than human endurance in all physical activities. (Deva flesh and bone is about three times as dense as similar human tissue, contributing to the superhuman strength and weight of the Hindu and Persian gods.)

Atar also has several powers mystical in nature. He seems be able to control fire to use it in purifying objects tainted by impure or demonic taint, but he has yet to demonstrate the full range of his power. According to his worshippers, he could purify objects be eating them and then returning the purified objects. He can purify earth as well by burning it. He can also cross between various dimensions to guide the cremated dead to the afterlife. He is semi-omniscient; because he is linked to fire in all its forms, he is aware of everything that occurs around him. The full range of his power is unrevealed.


Atar is a capable warrior in armed and unarmed combat.
