It is said that Hector was a priest of Solinvect Esteem who chose to walk away from his faith and was subsequently enslaved. After years of toil, he engineered his own escape along with dozens of other slaves, who became his first disciples. These outlaws grew quickly from being a small band of runaway slaves hiding in the Hearthwoods into a force of hundreds intent on claiming Semnavoldt as a haven for escaped slaves, and a stronghold of “justice, liberty, and true civilization”.
Priests of Hector vary in their areas of focus, serving as guards and protectors of the oppressed and lower classes, avengers of injustices, or proselytizers of Hector’s plan to redeem civilization. There is also an elite group of priests known as The Disciples of Hector. Many fighters also serve this god and are recruited by the various abbeys to serve as guards and officers. Paladins, too, are not uncommon among the ranks of those who serve the abbeys.
