The "Pramius-minpiscius", better known as the "Bang Fish" - is a rare species of Pufferfish that is seldom seen in the waters around Templehelm - This rarity is due to the fishes ability to self-destruct when threatened. They say that when you feel a nibble on your line, but fail to reel in the catch, you just killed a Bang Fish. The Akwal have the uncanny ability to catch these fish intact. The fish feels comfortable with the Akwal, giving the Akwalians the ability to throw this fish, the fish will then explode on impact.

Lore and Character Building
The 2nd Deity born according to the allegory of the Cavilon Chronicles, Akwal's sphere is the water of Templehelm. This influence extends through rain, river, puddle, and sea. Akwal's personality flows between smooth and raging, and has many facets as deep as the Setlian Sea.
The faith of Akwal is often spearheaded by the various nations that prop up in the eastern seaboard and the islands off the coast, though inland churches are not too uncommon.
The worship of Akwal is a no-brainer for characters that live in or near water. It's almost entirely synonymous with the lifestyles of the fisherman and sailor, and necessary for the success of island settlements, that would be at the mercy of Akwal's wrath due to their location.
Any Akwal Worshiper born in Templehelm or familiar with Templehelm must know of or remember the Tranquil Alliance and the city-states of Aren, and Serenity. It was common for Akwal Worshipers to be anti-undead due to the efforts of Paladin-king Redmond Bloodstone of Serenity.
It is said that those who die at sea become one of the Drowned.
