Roman Nature God

Also known as SYLVANUS

The Protector of Boundaries and Wild Fields

A very environmentally-friendly deity, he specializes in pastoral protection. Previously known as the Etruscan SELVANS, he’s best mates with frolicking FAUNUS and is now a bit goaty.

To be honest, lately he seems to have left those boring old pastures to fend for themselves. That could explain why the fields and farms aren’t quite as lush as they used to be. If you see him, give him a nudge.
