As one of the Triumphant, Alain was once mortal. As the tales tell it, he was a brash human with a pure heart who sought to protect not only his own grove of trees, but the whole of the natural world. He was accompanied by many spirits, some of which fell under the corruption of Destruction, but ultimately he took part in the great battle that saved humanity. He was reluctant to bind himself in any way, particularly magical pacts, and holds a special hatred for demons and devils who trick the kindhearted into evil. Now among the great spirits of nature in his own right, Alain, takes the form of a great phoenix. Kratek is under the deific shaman’s protection, and many druids and rangers call the planet home for his divine influence. Druids and clerics who venerate Alain usually take the native dinosaurs of the planet as travel companions, rangers particularly favoring large predators as their cohort. Alain is not the only deity of Kratek, as the planet is believed to also fall under Lamashtu’s special favor. However, there is little animosity between the Scaled Phoenix and the Mother of All Beasts, and the friendliness of the faiths has led to some speculation that the pair are mated, and their union is what fills the forests and plains of the realm.
