On the prime-material world of Toril, Ilmater is a god of suffering, martyrdom, and perseverance. Also known as the Broken God or The One Who Endures, he is allied with Tyr, and is the sworn foe of Loviatar. At all opportunities, Loviatar's faithful will seek to torment Ilmater's people, forcing them to watch the suffering of others. Among his other foes are Malar and Talos.

He and his followers are known to endure pain to ease the suffering of others, sometimes giving them a reputation as masochists. However, the faithful of Ilmater have great skill at healing, and often aid the poor, diseased, and oppresed. For this reason, they are greatly admired by the Bleak Cabal.

Ilmater's realm Martyrdomain is in Shurrock, the stormy layer of Bytopia. It is a place of rest, known as one of the most soothing places on the planes. At its heart is a great, open-air temple where the servants and martyrs of Ilmater are rewarded for their services in life.
