Apsu is the patron deity of all good and metallic dragons, and one of the oldest gods of the Great Beyond. Along with Tiamat, he is (at least according to draconic lore) believed to be one of the two original creator beings of the multiverse.

Origins

It is said that Apsu and Tiamat created the original gods. One of the first was Dahak, the destroyer. Apsu entered the Material Plane to battle Dahak, but was betrayed by Tiamat. This created a rift between metallic dragons and chromatic dragons. The battle between Apsu and Dahak still rages upon Golarion today. Apsu is also numbered among the divine creatures which fought in the battle to defend all of creation against Rovagug.

Church of Apsu

Brass dragons, gregarious in the extreme, generally fill the role as Apsu's servants and diplomats, although few of them could be considered particularly devout. Nevertheless, they always come when they are needed.
