Wherever there is suffering, famine, or strife, the followers of Evrak are usually not far away. If anyone is responsible for the troubles in the world, Evrak proudly takes up the blame. His main purpose, as he and his followers see it, is to create strife through natural, supernatural, and any other means available. These actions can range from simple torture and intimidation, to the magical creation of famine and natural disasters. The larger the population, the better the opportunity to serve this purpose.

Naturally, this makes the followers of Evrak, as well as the deity himself, extremely unpopular in regular circles. To argue against this, some of Evrak's clergy will argue that their place in the world is as natural as any other, since the bad things and life that make us suffer also allow us to see the good and the beautiful. The argument goes on to portray Evrak as a simple bringer of karma, which springs from every day existence.

Though Evrak's clergy only has a few isolated temples in discreet places throughout Avlis, the clergy takes an active role in seeing sites of suffering and famine, often taking pilgrimages to these places to see how they can make things even worse off for the locals. To a point, this takes some organization, which the church of Evrak provides by cataloguing areas that are suffering and having troubles. These records have even been known to make reliable historical documents after the fact.

Evrak is the child of Maleki and Verossa, and like his parents, he has a penchant for destruction and a degree of chaos. However, Evrak's followers tend to be more discreet about where chaos is spread, and how it is spread, which implies some order to their existence. No one is quite sure of these rules, but they do tend to note how famine and suffering often strike areas which were recently prosperous. Corruption also seems to be a magnet to Evrak's followers, since they have a high belief in karmic tendencies. By its nature, corruption requires some order, and though it is not a mantle possessed by Evrak, it is a closely associated companion wherever his work is found.
