Iyacthu Xvim, the Godson, is supposedly the offspring of the god Bane, who died during the Avatar crisis. Xvim, as he most commonly known, began ascending to true power when Cyric’s power slipped during the Cyrinishad fiasco.

Iyachtu Xvim’s reign was short-lived though. Just three years after his rise, the upstart Xvim was killed by Cyric on the Day of Black Sun, when the god of murder consolidated his position. Already confused by the repeated back and forth of evil gods, most of Xvim’s followers were thrown into disarray and his temples destroyed shortly thereafter (often by the direct power of Cyric himself).

The Temple of Iyachtu Xvim in Old Phlan was crushed by one of the meteors known as the “Blood of Lathander” on the Day of Black Sun. The high priestess, Mace, is missing and presumed dead.
