The Age of Sevastis
The Primal Gods
Ybris – God of Fire and the Sun
Ouna – Goddess of the Air and the Sky
Anja – Goddess of Water and the Sea
Iaos – God of the Earth and the Land
Erus – God of Light, Day, and Worship
One of the first of the Major Gods to be born from from the elemental chaos of the Primal Gods, it was Erus who first brought light into the Material World. Adorned in silver armor that shines brighter than any star in the sky, Erus is known as the Father of Creation, the Light of the World, and the God of the New Day. Counted as one of the more powerful Major Gods, Erus is wed to the nature Goddess Ikara, and together they had six daughters, four of whom control the seasons, and two who control the night, moon and stars.
Ikara – Goddess of Animals, Plants, and Nature
Known as the Mother of Creation, and the Goddess of Nature, Ikara is the long-time beloved wife of Erus, whom together they raised six daughters— Unera, Optuna, Abira, Erelia, Enira and Azullah. Ikara is often times depicted as an elf-like maiden with wild brown hair adorned with flowers, or a beautiful dryad-like faerie or fey.
Imana – Goddess of Life, Love, and Peace
Wife of the God Lethys and sister of Orfia, Imana is a glowing figure of radiance and beauty, often depicted as a blonde maiden in a white dress with a jewelled crown atop her head. Though she is loved by all, the only one whom her heart belongs to is Lethys, whose constantly shifting physique Imana finds fascinating.
Lethys – God of Time, Fate, and Change
‘It was as Lethys showed Erus the Abyss for the first time that the God of Light asked the God of Time at what point had he begun preparing their brother’s prison. To which Lethys replied, ‘Brother, I began the day we were born.’ – from the Book of Erus, regarding Ki-Rohbin’s exile from the heavens into the Abyss.
Lethys is known as The Old Man, The Counter of Days and the Bringer of Change. Appearing in many forms, the God of Change is never quite described the same way twice, though in writing he is often depicted as either a handsome grey-haired man with concerned eyes, or a thin old man with a beard and clock. The reason for his shifting appearance, is that Lethys’ form tends to drift back and forth between youth and old age, from male to female, and this was one of the main reasons he tried to deny Imana’s initial affections towards him, that and the fact he knew his brother, Ki-Rohbin, had feelings for her too. Plagued by the future knowledge that it would be his brother that would bring evil into the the world, it was Lethys in the end, joined by Erus, who condemned Ki-Rohbin to his prison in the Abyss. When not dining with his wife in the Realm of Gods, Lethys enjoys spending his free time speaking with his nieces, who as Goddesses of the Seasons and the Moon and Darkness, he finds much needed conversation in regarding the ebb and flow of cause and causality.p.
Ki-Rohbin – God of Anger, Evil, and Demons
Known as the Screaming One, the Sire of Monsters and The First Demon, Ki-Rhobin allowed his jealousy of his brother Lethys’ relationship with the love goddess Imana to bring him to take arms against not only the major gods, but the primal elders as well. From his screams of anger and jealousy were born the six major demons: Wynn-Ei the Devourer of Worlds, Igritus the Bringer of Horror, Ie-Yorei the Diseased, Kahng the Mother of Chains, Rah-Bhut the Hoarder of Souls, Ti’goru the Archduke of Mayhem, and Ohll the Teller of Nightmares. Condemned to govern the lowest level of the Abyss with his wife Orfia, Ki-Rohbin screams and bashes his fists against the prison created for him by his brothers while governing the three respective realms ruled by his three children. He is described as a hulking man with dark hair and eyes, adorned in rags and the dust of whatever he has destroyed latest.
Orfia – Goddess of Misery, Solitude and Guilt
Sometimes called the Crying One, Lady of Tears, and the Unloved, Orfia is bound in marriage to the god of anger and evil, Ki-Rohbin, whom she loved unconditionally. Unfortunately, Ki-Rohbin cannot truly ever love Orfia in return given his feelings for Orfia’s sister, Imana.When Ki-Rohbin was banished to the Abyss after bringing evil into the material world and unleashing his demon spawn onto existence, Orfia followed Ki-Rohbin and begged him to take her as his bride. Though their relationship is far from perfect, Ki-Rohbin and Orfia remain together in their realm of fire and shadow, where they spired three children of their own: Siraxiel, Cazius and Hexus. Those few who have survived an encounter with Orfia and left with their minds intact describe her as a lithe young girl with long, black hair and blueish-pale skin.
Umir – God of Harvest, Hunting, and Food
Ymera – Goddess of Health, Home, and Protection
Lyrena – Goddess of Music, Writing, and the Arts
Aaldir – God of Wisdom, Language, and Travel
A band of heroes lost on their travels, a warlock seeking arcane knowledge, a bard seeking the right words to complete his tune— all of these individuals are more than likely sending off a prayer to Aaldir when they do so.
Azemus – God of Knowledge, Intelligence, and Learning
Dyneri – Goddess of Truth, Order, and Law
Archelos – God of Justice, Protection, and Good
Dyona – Goddess of Balance, Penance, and Mercy
Vora’kuss – Lord of the Faeries and the Feywild
Often time rumoured to be an estranged brother of Ikara, Vora’kuss is better known as the Feyking. Within his realm of the Feywild, Vora’kuss has total dominion, and as such the world there is a very strange place indeed. Known to be a trickster like most fey creatures, the fabled Lord of Faeries is often described as a tall, thin, elven-like creature with wild white hair and piercing blue eyes whom offers travellers into his realm gifts and drink or safe passage back to their own realms if they have stumbled in accidentally. However, the stories tend to contradict themselves in the number of tales that suggest Vora’kuss had indeed done the individuals a favour, versus those where the individuals found themselves cursed for years to come.
