One of the original five gods, Veneficus is the God of magic and knowledge. While it is certain that all arcane magic comes through him, some beleive even the magic of the other gods is comes from Veneficus as well and as such all divine magic comes indirectly through him.
Veneficus is extremely indifferent to the affairs of both the heavens and the world and prefers to focus all his attentions on his own studies. While there are certainly those who have been granted divine power through his worship it is difficult even for his clerics to say if this is the result of active attention by their deity or simply a passive overflow of his power which can be harnessed by those who seek it.
Veneficus is responsible for the creation of Bellum and Iustitia (the gods of war) and through them he can be argued to be the projenitor of a full half of the divine pantheon.
