Beliar is one of the three major gods of the Gothic Series and has played a role in both the backstory and the canon of all three games. Beliar is the god of darkness, enemy of his brother god Innos, and the followers of Innos and Adanos consider worship of Beliar depraved due to Beliar being the patron god of the Orcs and Beliar being the god of darkness. Like Adanos and Innos, Beliar is central to the conflicts that have plagued the Gothic series world. Beliar is worshiped by the Orcs (as seen in Gothic III) and the Hashishin, the desert people who live to the south of Myrtana, and as result the Orcs and the Hashishin are on somewhat friendly terms, despite the Hashishin being humans.
