Garyx the All-Destroyer symbolizes the sheer power and destructive force of dragonkind. Some argue that Garyx is actually insane, as a result of his long residence on the Windswept Depths of Pandemonium. He appears much like a great wyrm red dragon.

Dogma
Garyx teaches by example, periodically traveling to the Material Plane to wreak unholy swaths of destruction across the landscape. Those who revere follow the example, using their power to bring ruin and devastation. Looting, pillaging, and rapine acts combined with rampant destruction and carnage are all considered part of the proper and full worship of Garyx. To the worshipers of Garyx, destruction is a part of creation, a continual cycle that must endlessly repeat itself. And with every passing act of death, there is also a chance at the renewal of life that follows behind.

Clergy
Garyx pays little or no attention to his clerics and worshipers, but they do not care. They believe that he grants them the power to perform acts of destruction, and that is enough. Perhaps curiously, some druids also revere the renewal aspect of Garyx, knowing that some devastation is always necessary for rejuvenation.
