    Name: Loosat
    Title: The Lord of Blood, The Vengeful Ocean, The Great Instigator, etc.
    Gender: Male
    Race: Aeon
    Power Level: God
    Appearance: Tall, broad, and thick. Like the sea, he is always changing shades depending on how the sun hits him. He is armored in plates invulnerable to mortal weapons, and is shaped in a style reminiscent of great shell fish.
    Special Powers (if any): Strength beyond measure, command of water, and a psychic command of aquatic creatures that is unlikely (yet not impossible) to resist.
    Realm (for gods): All bodies of water, yet the farther from the sea he is the less his influence holds sway. Conflict and warfare.
    Alignment: Lawful Evil
    Mythical Role: Creator of oceans, and therefore creator of conflict.
    Special Items: None, but any object he holds becomes infinitely more efficient as a weapon.
    Biography : First post, like the others.
    Creator or Parent: The essence of necessity.
    Personality: Incessantly moving, inwardly and outwardly. Like the oceans he created, Loosat is constantly causing friction with all he touches. He believes conflict to be as natural to all things living and non living as the passage of time. As such, he promotes dominance and violence as a solution to all things, as only the strong will stand the test of time.
    Goal: Fighting.

    Name: Ignis
    Title: Keeper of the First Flame, the Lord-Protector of Mortal Creation, God of Fire, the Dreamed God, Son of Mogan, the Mirrored Knight
    Gender: Male
    Race: Aeon (though mortal due to possessing the First Flame)
    Power Level: God
    Appearance: Tall and beautiful with the reflections of all future mortals in his face, Ignis possesses his father's, Mogan, eyes but more closely resembles a human or elven entity than Mogan who more resembles a dwarf.
    Special Powers: Unparalleled sword fighter, fire creation and manipulation, and keeper of the first flame, a magic that grants those blessed with it mortality. And though not necessarily a "power", Ignis exists almost exclusively in the dreams of others.
    Realm: Fire, Dreams, the Creation of Mortal Life, Dedication to a Life of Duty, Servitude, or Protection

    Faction: N/a
    Alignment: LG
    Mythical Role: Son of Mogan, who he gave Guardian of the magic, the First Flame, which creates mortal life.

    Special Items: The First Flame, a piece of semi-tangible magic that bestows mortal life upon the possessor, a sword and suit of mirrored armor created by Mogan to protect his son in his duties
    Biography: Ignis was born of Mogan's dreams and his father's will to create life. He possesses a very different personality, being from his father's scattered thoughts, and shares no blood relation, Ignis is a fleeting and scarce deity that exists more, but not exclusively, in the mind rather than the physical realm. Ignis exists at the edges of dreams where he guards the First Flame with eternal vigilance and unwavering faith in the goodness of creation. Ignis is also technically the first mortal, though still a full-god, since he possesses the First Flame.
    Personality: Dutiful and resolute, Ignis waits with eternal patience for the time which all mortal creation spills forth, and, until that time, guards the First Flame from any who might steal or defile it.
    Goal: To protect and keep the First Flame

    Name: Z'ozal
    Title: The Defiled Thing, Retching Maw, Eye of Madness, The Blasphemer/Blasphemous One, The Blight
    Gender: N/a
    Race: An aftereffect of the creation of the universe and its separation of void from substance
    Power Level: God
    Appearance: Z'ozal's has countless forms, its "true" form is virtually incomprehensible, even for gods. Its primary "god" form exists as a writhing and self-consuming gray mass of entwined, writhing tentacular appendages with eyes, mouths, and whole deformed faces forming and unforming constantly along its gelatinous flesh, often enveloping and replacing or consuming others as they form. The movement of this mass upon itself emits a noises likened to retching while the faces and mouths themselves wail in agony, rage, and madness. Many perceive it rather as a greatly uncomfortable presence than hearing the sound itself. Other forms taken are of a gargantuan, open maw filled throughout with large, sharp teeth and many tongues; the mouth is impossible in its dimensions as, viewed from the front, open, it has no perceived end but is instead a bottomless pit of teeth and tongue, but viewed from the sides it is short. Yet another form is that of a floating eye with stem attached; bloodshot and quivering, fidgeting uncomfortably and never looking in one place for more than a moment.

    Z'ozal most often presents itself, however, as a gaunt or even emaciated male albino with thin lips, long fingers, and small, watery eyes, though without apparent reproductive organs and totally hairless. Its eyes flutter and flit back and forth constantly. This particular form is not a form at all however, but an illusion cast before its other form for others to perceive. An illusion of perception, one can "see" past Z'ozal's "human" form, almost like catching something out of the corner of ones eye, but there is an intense need to not look or simply not take notice planted into the psyche. When Z'ozal speaks, in any of its forms, the voice is not of a single entity but of a multitude of fearful and manic voices, some in whispers or gasping breaths, others in jittery or even shouted voices (though all are perceived to a similar level and roughly form a single voice) overlayed on the sound of retching and wailing.

    Special Powers: Ability to inflict madness, disease, and other corruptions, Powerful illusion magic
    Realm (for gods): Sickness, disease, poison, parasites, deformation, decay, fear, madness, corruption, cowardice, cannibalism, and carnal excess, especially gluttony or hording or lusting
    Faction (if any): N/a
    Alignment: CE
    Mythical Role (if any): Though not the god of death, one could argue that Z'ozal is the god of the ways mortals things die. It also works to make corruptions and perversions of other things already in existence.
    Special Items: N/a
    Biography:
    First post
    Creator or Parent: Debatable, Z'ozal may have been created, like the Aeon, by the All-Creator, or it may have come into existence when Emptuma separated first began filling, separating, or otherwise interacting with the void, or it may be something else entirely, not even it knows for certain
    Personality: Typically sinister and malicious in intent, Z'ozal is an intelligent schemer and may spin complicated, intricate webs for ages. It acts in accordance with self-preservation, as, physically, it is not as imposing or as strong as many of the other gods and typically treads with caution and care to avoid angering its kindred.
    Goal: None, though Z'ozal plots and schemes and spins webs, it is all for no greater outcome. Z'ozal does not even commit evil for its own sake or seek to make mockeries of the "good" things other gods make, it simply acts on its own whims.

    Demigod/Monster/Titan signup:

    Khul, Lord of Dragons, Eldest (@wanderingmagus) - True Neutral Male Dragon, spawn of Mogan, Z'ozal and Wanderer
    Name: Khul
    Title: Lord of Dragons, Eldest
    Gender: Male
    Race: Dragon, Titan
    Power Level (god, demigod, etc): Demigod/Monster/Titan
    Appearance: giant golden-scaled dragon, horned back like the ridges of mountains, teeth like forests, wings that could blot out the sky if outstretched, golden eyes, horned head, thin and drawn face (again, dragon), many spines and spikes, but indisputably beautiful and mighty, supple and swift as lightning. In mortal form, becomes a supernaturally handsome and beautiful mortal of choice, but with golden eyes and hair.
    Special Powers (if any): understands all languages, anything he set alight would burn with unceasing pain - rocks would crack and melt, forests turn to ash, and fair fields of crops become barren wastelands, can hear through the vibrations of the earth, almost impervious to damage, can shapeshift into the form of a Mortal. Speaks the Language of Titans.
    Faction (if any): Dragonkind
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Mythical Role (if any): Antediluvian Titan, Lord of Dragons
    Special Items (trident, gem, etc, if any): the First Hoard, located in the abandoned forge where Mogan first created Salamanders, a source of great contention and jealousy.
    Biography (if applicable): Born of the blood of Mogan fallen from his injured hand, corrupted by the Blight of Z'ozal into a Nameless form, then Shaped by the Wanderer, Khul, the Lord of Dragons and Eldest among them is a force to be reckoned with, for he chose his own Shape and his own powers, granted by the Wanderer.
    Creator or Parent: Mogan, Z'ozal, and the Wanderer
    Personality: Proud, greedy, extremely cunning, lusts after the divine creations of Mogan, especially gold. Lashes out and inflicts pain upon those who slight him or those he considers his own. Takes pride and ownership over dragons under his rule, and considers every dragon a part of his hoard. Like most dragons, hoards his treasures.
    Goal (if any): Maintain supremacy, protect his hoard (including "his" dragons), acquire as many of Mogan's creations as possible.

    Jhoragh, the Worm of the World (@wanderingmagus) - Chaotic Neutral Male Worm, spawn of Z'ozal and Wanderer
    Name: Jhoragh
    Title: Worm of the World
    Gender: Male
    Race: Worm/Titan
    Power Level (god, demigod, etc): Demigod/Monster/Titan
    Appearance: massive pale worm, with a maw ringed with teeth like a lamprey and fangs and fingered tentacles around it which drive into the earth and stone before him and scoop the dissolving mass into his maw. Slick with caustic, shimmering Wormsblood, which turns into something like liquid night when exposed to Weave magic.
    Special Powers (if any): can devour his way through the fabric of Creation itself into the place-between-things to help maintain the Weaver's Weird-Ways; his caustic slimes can dissolve anything non-divine, and he can hear everything that moves upon and under the surface of the earth. Speaks the Language of Titans.
    Faction (if any): Weave of Magic
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Mythical Role (if any): Antediluvian Titan, gnawer of the foundations of the earth, guardian of Weird-Ways
    Special Items (trident, gem, etc, if any): Wormsblood, his caustic slime and blood which seeps from his pores, which when exposed to Weave magic became like the night sky of the Wanderer's cloak, giving glimpses of Osseon's visions and changing other liquids it came into contact with, in particular water. Water, when touched with magic-imbued Wormsblood, shimmered and sparkled, healing and imbuing those that bathed in or drank it with the energies of magic and life, and when mixed with other substances could bring forth strange effects. Used as a base for a great many potions, and is given many names in different languages and cultures.
    Biography (if applicable): Spawned of the Blight of Z'ozal but Shaped by the Weaver of Magic, the Worm of the World, Jhoragh, inspires terror and awe as he carves massive tunnels into the foundations of the world, both creating and maintaining the Weird-Ways of the Wanderer.
    Creator or Parent: Z'ozal and the Wanderer
    Personality: spawned of the Blight of Z'ozal, Jhoragh cared for little other than devouring and tunneling, but when given the gift of traveling through the place-between-things, the Wanderer gained his undying trust and loyalty. Jhoragh protects and maintains the Weird-Ways and the Weave of Magic from those who would seek to destroy them, and occasionally opens new Weird-Ways at the Wanderer's behest.
    Goal (if any): Burrow, consume, devour, and maintain the Weave and Weird-Ways

    Unshalgoth, Mother of Spiders (@wanderingmagus) - True Neutral Female Spider, spawn of Z'ozal and Wanderer
    Name: Unshalgoth
    Title: Mother of Spiders, Mistress of Webs, the Weaver's Daughter
    Gender: Female
    Race: Spider, Titan
    Power Level (god, demigod, etc): Demigod/Monster/Titan
    Appearance: A giant spider. Her delicate legs were sharpened to needle points to work the fine threads of magic, and she had many eyes to peer closely at her work, both that which was directly before her and the greater whole of her creations. Though her beauty was not that of Khul, her massive carapace shimmered with many colors, twisting together into patterns and Shapes of Power formed by the Wanderer.
    Special Powers (if any): the Gift of Weaving, imitating the power of the Weaver by crafting lesser webs imbued with magic, in the form of Shapes and Symbols. Speaks the Language of Titans. Possibly has the ability to disguise or project herself in mortal form.
    Faction (if any): Weave of Magic, Spiderkind
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Mythical Role (if any): Antediluvian Titan, maintainer of the Weave
    Special Items (trident, gem, etc, if any): various magical Silks, with different powers depending on the weave and enchantments. Her mortal form is associated with distaffs, spindles, looms, spinning wheels, needles.
    Biography (if applicable): Spawned of the Blight of Z'ozal but Shaped by the Weaver of Magic, Unshalgoth, Mother of Spiders, inspires awe and wonder with her beautiful and intricate webs. In gratitude to the Weaver, she both imitates and maintains the Weave with her own webs, protecting it from those who would destroy it, and occasionally helping the Weaver to extend or repair it where needed.
    Creator or Parent: Z'ozal and the Wanderer
    Personality: Spawned of the Blight of Z'ozal, Unshalgoth was at first fearful and jealous like many of her fellow Nameless, hiding in the darkness and crafting corrupted imitations of the Weave in the blind shadows, but when given the Gift of Weaving, the Weaver of Magic gained her undying gratitude. Unshalgoth protects and maintains the Weave of Magic from those who would seek to destroy it, and occasionally helps the Weaver to extend or repair it where needed.
    Goal (if any): protect and maintain the Weave of Magic, find new ways to weave, look after her spawn.

    Name: Elineth
    Title: Spirit Sister
    Gender: Female
    Race: Aeon
    Power Level (god, demigod, etc): Goddess
    Appearance: Appears as a white transluscent but humanoid form. She has a female body and wears strips of light that wave about her as if underwater. She is initially incredibly large, so that from the earth planet only small parts of her can be seen at a time, so that her presence is more like a bright mist with tendrils than that of a body. She will gradually shrink (see powers) until her eventual disappearance (in many eons' time).
    Special Powers (if any): Her presence gives spirits to individual objects (not minds). The spirits are a part of her and maintain the link to her, which can be seen as thin tendrils of white light linking everything that has a spirit to her “body”. Once everything in creation and time has a spirit, she will have no more body of her own and instead inhabit every thing as its spirit. She shrinks in size for every spirit given.
    Realm (for gods): Spirits.
    Faction (if any): None.
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral.
    Mythical Role (if any): Giver of Spirits.
    Special Items (trident, gem, etc, if any): the Stone of Inner Sight, which is a diamond-like gem stone the size of a plum that reveals spirits to mortals when held (god(esse)s, demigods, etc, can see spirits).
    Biography (if applicable): will be written in my first RP post.
    Creator or Parent: All-Maker.
    Personality: Flighty, initially slow to act but becomes faster as she shrinks in size, she likes to traverse space giving spirits to all individual things that she comes upon, and has few thoughts beyond animating (as in animism) these things. She is sort of a mix between Syl and the Stormfather from the Stormlight Archive, although my original inspiration is animism and Gaia.
    Goal (if any): To give a spirit to every individual thing in creation and time.
