Sors was a minor Roman god of luck. Considering what he governs, it’s surprising that Sors isn’t mentioned more often. Luck tends to be a favorite deity for many cultures, yet Sors seems to take a huge backseat to other luck gods.
In the only picture I could find of Sors (above), he is shown as a middle-aged man without a beard, and looks to possibly be well-to-do judging from his clothing.
I could find no information on any myths at all for Sors. Strangely, he doesn’t appear in any myths. If he had stories of his own or in which he appeared, they haven’t survived or were so minor that they were eaten by a more common myth with more important gods.
Light and Dark Sides
Unfortunately, as there are no myths about Sors to judge him by, his personality it something of an enigma. However, based on what we know of other luck gods, we can probably assume that Sors is somewhat fickle, bestowing luck on people willy-nilly as the whim strikes him. I doubt he would be considered a dangerous god, but perhaps he could be considered perilous to trust for too long a period of time–Sors could change his mind at any time and your luck will run out.
