Boccob is the god of magic, arcane knowledge, and foresight. He is a distant deity who promotes no particular agenda outside of proclaiming magic the most important force in the world - more vital than good, evil, law, or chaos. He advises his followers to seek balance above law and chaos, and to push back encroachments of good or evil.
This steadfast moderation in political, ethical, and philosophical affairs earns Boccob and his followers few friends, but the followers of the Lord of Magic are respected for their knowledge and magical prowess, and their advice is valued, if not always completely trusted.
Boccob appears as a handsome man of indeterminate age clad in loose purple robes with shimmering golden runes that warp and change as they move across the fabric.
