Background

Kafziel is the Lord of Solitude and Tears on Golgotha. Although he is only a Shinnam from the Plane of Beauty, in the absence of his creator and the Planes of the Dome, the Golgothans have come to worship him as a deity. He is, quite possibly, the most powerful entity in all Golgotha, since the other Golgothan "deities" are Malachim, Hashmallim, and Arellim from the Planes of the Way, and have only very limited power since their ties to the creator, and to their home planes, were severed. He is uninterested in his powers, though, spending most of his time deep in thought, desperately trying to remember things he knows he has forgotten, chasing the ghosts of memory back through the mists of time, in the hopes of finding the One True God.

Religion

Kafziel is the most popular deity in Golgotha, and his clerics are very often the most literate on the plane. The followers of Kafziel have heeded the Shinnam's warnings about the transience of memory, and make extensive records of all happenings, both terrestrial and celestial, so that the information can always be accessed. All settlements in Golgotha have easy access to a Monastary of Remembrance, no matter what the preferred local deity is, and the local deities are comfortable with this, as it keeps the pressure of record keeping off of themselves and their clerics.

Mnemosynai often have very high wisdom and intelligence scores, and are skilled in music, chant, meditation, trance, computation, empathy, and evocation. If you've read Dune, imagine training a Bene Gesserit as a mentat.

Madness

Kafziel is obsessed with the blank spots in his memory, and has on occasion, sat in glassy-eyed contemplation for a century or two.
