Goddess of Perseverance and Will
It is said that Aasira was manifested from the breaths of those who fought the embrace of death, from the wills of those passed with far too much left to do, and the essence of beings too stubborn to leave their world. She is both revered and feared as she aligns with neither the righteous nor the wicked, but favors those who display great will and perseverance.
She is known for remaining hidden by the stars as she protects the realm quietly.
A wandering god that established the arcane force within the universe. His presence created an elemental-less magic that preserves the order between the elements, forbidden magics, and the great dance of life and death. Many scholars find solace in offering him a prayer when venturing into unknown territory. Charon is considered a patron of academics, wizards, and magitek engineers.
Master of Madness
Dorjan, former seeker of truths, descended into madness and is now known as the creator of nightmares. His dark arts are often whispered among the cursed, and those deranged or betrayed by the difficulties of life find solace in his whispers. He begot many children, but most notably children of games and shadows. Those who praise him do so with a bitten tongue, or fall fully into his insane belief.
Breath of Life
Elseldir is the aspect of life and the Moon. In his earliest form Elseldir was smitten with the Goddess of Death, Lena, and begot a single child with her. When Surna appeared, the god of Life was naturally drawn to her beauty and warmth.
Elseldir is thought to be the prime masculine creator of all mortal creatures on Tenebris Realm, breathing life into all who walk within the realm. Some were formed through unions of early, titanic creatures, while others were melded with his hands and moonlight. As the divine aspect of masculine life bringing, he and Michara have a tumultuous, dynastic affair.
Arcane elves, demons, and Jelwari regard them as their species’ Father.
Water and Duality
The first rainfall and father of the oceans, Eurotas arrived in the universe shortly after Surna. He was the epitome of duality, holding both the aspects of tranquility and destruction within him. Though, with the constant war and hostility between the two, Eurotas eventually split, allowing Thetis and Nebethet to spring forth and take on their own forms. The only request Eurotas made was for the two brothers to continue working together in order to maintain balance within the sea.
The Goddess of Chaos, Fortuna represents the unexpected, unbelievable, and outrageous. Her children are Luck and Misfortune, and she watches with glee from a throne made of gold and jewels. The patroness of gamblers, many often please for her fortunate smirk to help them win bets or sow fear in others. What the Goddess decides to answer, however, is entirely up to her own accord.
The Final Embrace
The oldest of all aspects, Lena appeared moments before Elseldir, but it was enough time to establish a cycle of death within the world. In the beginning, the earliest aspects of Death and Life were lovers, constantly commingling their existence. With the appearance of Surna, Lena was spurned. Since that early humiliation, Lena refuses to meet Elseldir, and turned to other forces, both mortal and not, for comfort.
Lena has many children, she created the En’yre as her mortal vessels and followers.
Those who worship Lena are typically members of Death’s Shroud, but those who honor her are not limited to ministerial admiration.
Goddess of Earth and Seasons
Born from the deepest pit from the very world she roots herself to, Michara is the mother of all things earth and nature. Without her, plants would not bloom, rain would not fall, and animals would not thrive. Michara considers all living creatures her children, but it is said that those who pay heed to the world around them will feel her warmth just that little bit more.
As mother of growth and prosperity, it is through Michara’s work with Elseldir that Esterin remains standing after Surna’s disappearance. Blessing those she believes will help this monumental task, the goddess wants nothing more than to see the world thriving once again.
Destruction and Natural Disasters
Dead but not forgotten, long ago, Nebethet was killed by his brother and banished to the bottom of the Great Ocean. Before his fall, Nebethet cared only for himself. He wanted nothing to do with his original purpose as a divine, not seeing the importance of having a natural duality in accordance to the ocean. He tried as hard as he could to stray from his divine purpose, only to be slain by his brother Thetis.
The Lost Flame
Surna burst forth into the universe with an explosion of heat and fire. She filled the void left between Esleldir and Lena. Elseldir, enamored with the aspect of Fire and Purity, sought out her company. For eons the two were unable to touch; Elseldir the Moon, Surna the Sun. She has many children either sired from Elseldir or created by her own two hands.
Seafaring and Tranquility
Gentle and reserved, long ago, Thetis was left with no choice, but to slay his brother, Nebethet. He was mad with power, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. Disaster after disaster, Thetis’ brother cared not for life, but only carnage. Using one of his brother’s own artifacts, Thetis shoved the massive hook through his brother’s chest and cast him to the bottom of the Great Ocean.
