Followers of the
eastern gods can mostly be found in Arnika, the
eastern continent. See
Represents: refuge, growth, motherhood, rebirth
Patron: refugees, mothers, all kin
Eouen is the second
oldest of all the gods, after Suitachi. She has the
most biologically unsound beast form of all the gods:
an 8-winged phoenix. (believe me, it's all for show.)
Eouen is seen as a mother-figure, the guardian of
refugees. All of her temples provide refuge to anyone
who will ask of it. She is also known as the protector
of all kin, because it is believed that one of her
priestesses, for whom Eouen's continent was named for,
was the mother of the first kin.

Dhio is the most
feared and misunderstood of all the gods. (And he
couldn't care less.) He could be seen as the
anti-god-god, caring little for the rich splendor and
responsibilities of a deity's life. He does exactly
what is expected of him and little more. Dhio has no
priests, religion or temples, and has a relatively
small, loose "following", mostly of artisans and
blacksmiths who pay homage to him. It is rare that he
will show favor on any individual, and tends to stay
secluded from anyone, immortal and mortal alike-- with
the exception of his fellow eastern gods. Dhio is
usually seen in human form, wearing a large black
cloak and grate-like mask, and riding Keir, his black
warhorse. It is widely believed that he is the
personification of death.
Dhio is my
favorite god. As you've probably guessed, he's my own
nifty version of Anubis.
Keir is Dhio's
horse, an unnaturally large midnight black shaggy
clydesdale. Keir is blind and is always surrounded by
fire-like black whisps of smoke which it uses to sense
its surroundings. Not much is known about the horse,
but its appearance has gained Keir the nickname "death
stallion," among other titles, and it is believed to
be the animal version of the grim reaper.
wonder why Dhio is believed to be the personification
Offerings of oats or vegetables will often be left
near sick or dying animals to convince Keir to let
them live. No one is quite sure of Keir's gender.
Except for Dhio.
Keir means "black" in Gaelic.
Represents: healing, mortality
Patron: priests, humans
originally one of Eouen's priestesses. Then Reijt
decided to make an idiot of himself and get kicked out
of the godhood and she happened to be the most
convenient person to replace him. So now she's the
secondary fire god. Kaijyu isn't very popular among
the gods for this-- Reijt was popular and she is
looked down upon for being of mortal blood. Despite
all this, she has become one of the most popular gods
among the general masses, perhaps second of all
secondary gods to Oria.
Despite her unfriendly relationship with most other
gods, she's found a close friendship with Dhio. And I
do mean close.
Type: fallen god
Represents: luck, commerce, wit
Patron: gamblers, merchants
Reijt was a bad boy.
He got jealous and tried to take Eouen's place as a
cardinal god. Wasn't very popular for it. Got himself
booted out of his position of secondary fire god, then
got replaced by a mortal of all things. Was
comfortably living as a demigod private citizen for a
while, then disappeared after a couple hundred years.
No one quite knows what happened to him...

Note: I couldn't
help it... I had to make the fallen god a squirrel.
