July Anomalies A- Z: The God of Fortresses

Of the King who did according to his will and magnified himself above every petty god and honored the God of Fortresses with much gold and silver, and who regardeth not the gaze and desire of women

A mighty fortress on pagan sands
physical forces holding spiritual and temporal sway
wielding the sword of power
flashing this way and that.

He shall do just as he will.
He will speak barbarisms and blasphemies.
He will wear the skulls of his enemies.
He will reawaken occulted mysteries long forgotten by his fathers.

His militant priests and clerical guardsmen
will march across the globe
on ley line energies,
and they shall wear upon their breasts
the emblem of their master.

And this is his device:
a stone tower on bend sinister.

This is part of July Anomalies A-Z, a creative writing exercise and not intended to be an altogether accurate picture of the creature described above.
