The Daybringer is one of the Seven Lost Gods, the patron deities of the Felindian world.
The Daybringer is a masculine deity. He is the Lord of the Sky, The Blue Star, He Who Raises the Sun, and He Who Brings Light. He and his brother, the Nightlord, are unlike the other five, that act as the five aspects of catkind. Instead they are seen as the masters of the heavens, together mastering time and the turning of the world. He is the patron god of the Domestic breed, of which he finds
merit in their flexibility and many areas of talent, and the Knights of the kinddom draw their power from him. He is said to be the god of justice and fairness, the sun and the moon, and god of the sky. He is haled in courtrooms and lawmaker enclaves, to guide their decisions for the good of the realm.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the Daybringer is a god of goodness and order. Idols of the Daybringer are often crafted in ivory and inlaid with gold, placed where the most light can fall upon him. It is said to be bad luck to let an idol of the Daybringer fall into darkness. The idols and images of him portray him as as large, long-furred cat of pure white with a golden halo above his head to represent the sun, and small wings upon his back to show his connection to the sky. His temples are grand things of white stone and marble, with many windows, often of intricately made stained glass. His clergy are often seen outside, offering their services of counsel and healing to the public.
The Week of Beginnings, one of the two weeks outside of the Felindian Calendar, is the annual celebration of the peak of strength of the Daybringer and the beginning of a new year. It begins with the summer solstice, the longest day of the year.
