I think Daak is not a trickster and is worse than Lanbril. I believe that Daak is the 'other' of the Pelandan pantheon: the site of the opposite of everything in Pelandan society and the Jerontian Way. Given that Pelandan society is cooperative, balanced, creative and peaceful, Daak is a violent sociopath and vandal, actively dangerous rather than merely random. He might be a god of serial killers.
