Nightingale is the lesser deity of Lament. He is among the saddest of all the deities, grief follows him everywhere like a plague. He rules over the domains of death and grief and does it well. Those who follow him have experienced loss and have suffered greatly from it, especially depressed people also follow him. He is a chaotic good god with an especially good heart, he cares for the people of the mortal plane. Nightingale is very likely to come if you pray to him but he may not be able to do anything for you. He also can go to people who aren't following him but he is not quite as likely to do so.

Nightingale's titles include: Son of Evening Glory [1] (3e, Lesser Deity), King of Grief, God of Lament, and The Weeper.

Nightingale appears as a very tall and handsome featured man with black hair and pale skin, underneath his mask he has a handsome yet scarred face and brownish-gray eyes with purple face paint around them like a mask. He is often seen fully covered, wearing a deep plum colored cloak, a white plague doctor's mask with blue tear tracks from the eyes, thigh high boots, navy colored pants, and a breast plate with the symbol for hope on it [2]. He also carries an umbrella.

If Nightingale opens his umbrella it starts raining, as his umbrella is a god item. The rain does 4d4 healing. His umbrella also turns into purple regenerating throwing daggers that deal cold, necrotic, and lighting [3] damage.
