Apetekus is one of the Great Gods of the Tortallan Universe.[1] He is the god of slaves, often called the Guardian of Slaves[2], and is the male counterpart to Wilnedur, goddess of slaves.[1]


He was likely not worshiped in Tortall two hundred years later in the 5th century because the slave trade had been abolished in the mid-200s,[3] but based on his name, he probably originated in Carthak, where he might still be worshipped.

Amaya Painter had a shrine for Apetekus in her house, although it was not well cared for, as it was only there to support her story that her son, Calum was taken by slavers, when he was really taken by the Shadow Snake.
