|Forgotten Realms Deity|
|Title(s)||The Reaver, Master of All Weapons|
|Power Level||Lesser deity|
|Portfolio||War, skill-at-arms, destruction, plunder|
Garagos and Tempus are the only pair of deities that violate the otherwise strict rule against two gods of the same pantheon sharing the same portfolio, as both have the portfolio of war. Tempus merely tolerates Garagos for reasons of his own, a reason that many Realms scholars believe stems from the fact that Tempus dislikes mindless slaughter and destruction, and would be obliged to take on that portfolio if he slew his rival.
Though both are chaotic neutral in alignment, Garagos is wild and reckless, reveling in destruction and slaughter while Tempus values honorable combat; this distinction between the different modes of war they represent may be the reason that Lord Ao does not enforce his otherwise strict edict against portfolio sharing by stripping one or the other of his dominance over War.
