Dou-Bral was the son of the spirit-wolf Thron, and half-brother of the goddess Shelyn. Together, the brother and sister shared the portfolio of beauty, art, love and music but remained minor deities. After a conflict between the two of unknown origin, Dou-Bral left reality for the dark places between the planes. There he was possessed and corrupted by a powerful alien being which created him anew as the twisted and malevolent Zon-Kuthon. Upon his return to Golarion, Shelyn attempted to bring Dou-Bral back into his body, but was unsuccessful. It is believed that Dou-Bral still lives in some hidden prison in Zon-Kuthon's soul, but any attempts he has made to free himself have failed.
