Exalted: Blood and Fire
Catfish god of the Dahuang River in the Dreaming Shoals
Namazu-e takes the form of a massive catfish, perhaps as long as twenty feet, with eight eyes of glittering pearl. His whiskers twitch with each foul utterance from his uncouth mouth.
Namazu-e is used to being disrespected. As the god of a tributary river that empties into the Dreaming Sea, his home is littered with the detritus of a dozen villages and towns. Since his territory lies within the Empire of Prasad, he is deprived of his due worship by the Pure Way monks who enforce direct worship of the Dragon-Blooded and permit only the occasional festival in his name. His only true followers are the foul-mouthed sailors and river pirates who ply his home waters, and his vocabulary strongly resembles theirs.
