Torm (pronounced TORM), or The Loyal Fury, is the god of law and a lawful good greater deity whose portfolio consists of duty, loyalty, and righteousness. His symbol is a gauntlet, much like the symbol of the slain Helm, though specifically Torm’s symbol is a right-hand gauntlet held upright with palm forward.
Torm’s worshipers consist of those who favor the cause of both Good and Law. Righteousness, honesty, loyalty and truth are their primary pursuits. In the Post-Spellplague world, which is more dangerous and darker than ever, they shine as beacons of hope and courage.

Torm had a friendship with Helm prior to the latter’s death in 1384 DR, though the two deities’ priesthoods were cold to one another. Torm has many enemies amongst the foul deities, but the return of his arch nemesis Bane has forced Torm to concentrate his efforts again.
It’s well known that he and the Red Knight are fond of one another, but whether the two are friends or lovers is something the duo keep to themselves.
Torm is one of the three deities of similar interests known as the Triad, along with Ilmater and Tyr. It was often said by common-folk that Torm was the weakest of the three in his subservient role, but the role he played was of true importance: he acted as the nexus that holds the three together. Torm tempered Tyr’s zeal for justice with his gifts of mercy and humility.
Prior to the Time of Troubles Torm was a minor demipower. Torm gained considerable attention and praise during the Godswar when his faithful helped keep one of the missing Tablets of Fate safe, and his own avatar battled and completely destroyed the avatar of Bane outside Tantras, (on Eleasias 13), seemingly killing the god who has already been weakened by Mystra and her servant Elminster. Torm died in the conflict too, but because of his loyalty to his portfolio was resurrected by the overdeity Ao at the end of the Time of Troubles, with his power greatly increased.
