Taernin, the Great Traveler, is the Banu god of travelers, crossroads, and navigation and is one of the most common deities in the Banu pantheon. Due to the Banu practice of not recording historical events, its origins are shrouded in mystery. When it is depicted, Taernin closely resembles a Banu, and is often portrayed standing in a boat and holding an oar. Soulis that depend upon travel for trade often commission prayers to Taernin from Religious Soulis to keep them safe from unforeseen obstacles. Xenoanthropologists believe that Taernin worship may have originated on the Banu homeworld.
