Herm rejects all suggestions that It is a serial deicidal maniac or that It covets and collects the skulls of Its rival gods, keeping them in a gem-studded sacristy guarded by anything metallic-blue, scaled or fire-breathing. These stories are without exception lies!
It is true, however, that It has a special place in Its metaphysical affections for animals, critters, vile travesties of creation and the like. Herm, as only a god of creation can (or would ever think was in any way a good idea), frequently experiments with creating new monster species and crossbreeding existing ones. Many of Its currently inactive projects (whether abandoned due to petitions delivered with waving torches and flaming pitchforks, awaiting the creation of a viable mate, or simply maturing on ice) can be found in Its fabled Menagerie à Froid, accessible via arcane and well-guarded paths from the ND guildhall.
Herm's Hero is Fulgentle Ailurid. The Temple of the Great God Herm is located at the junction of Crepuscle Avenue and Beastwalk in uptown Godville. The deity's pet medal is on proud display, along with the dead taxidermied bodies of Its hero's former pets. At least, one assumes they're taxidermied. And dead. And... did that Biowolf just... no. Of course not.
