General Information
Plane Theros

Athreos is the God of Passage on Theros. In his role of easing the passage from life to death, he is associated with white and black mana.

Description[edit | edit source]

The shrouded Athreos is the River Guide, the divine ferryman of the dead across the Rivers That Ring the World to the Underworld. Silent, bent, and tattered, he patiently fulfills his role. Athreos is never without his signature staff, a gnarled length of dark wood. When he lays his staff over one of the five Rivers, it becomes a boat to carry the dead.[1]
