Major Gods of Aarden

 

Jovan the Creator

The origin of all life and the Supreme God. He is known mostly for having created the universe and all other gods.

Jhesu the Son

Jhesu is the physical form of Jovan that left Hellaspeir for Aarden as a hybrid of all five races. Appearing when all hope seemed lost for the Jovan Coalition during the Darkness, he convinced Hira to rebel against Selvath and rejoin the Creator’s forces, ultimately sacrificing himself to assure victory.

Selvath the Void

The Dark Lord, formally the leader of the angels who rebelled against Jovan. He deceived many other angels into following him in revolt, eventually bringing the war to Aarden and involving the five races.

The Five Patrons

Lyra the Wise

Is the goddess of the elves. Loyal and faithful she sided with Jovan during the Darkness.

Hira the Spirited

Is the goddess of the humans. She initially sided with Selvath during the Darkness, but eventually saw through his lies and returned to Jovan’s side before the end.

Menat the Stalwart

Is the god of the dwarves. He sided with Jovan during the Darkness where he forged an alliance with Lyra that lasts to this day.

Decopth the Strong

Is the god of the orcs. He sided with Selvath during the Darkness and was cast into the plane of Hades by Jovan for his crime.

Viji the Wiley

Is the god of the goblins. He sided with Selvath during the Darkness and was cast into the plane of Hades along with Decopth and Selvath.

Imperus Fervus

Are the five most powerful angels after Selvath. Jovan, in the beginning, gave each one of them a land in Aarden to create life on through his power. They were each tasked with creating a superior race to worship Jovan. The Creator was then to pick the best of the five to inhabit the planet. However, when all was done, Jovan saw too much of himself in each race and decided to take pity on the inferior four races, allowing them all to continue.

The Darkness

Little written human history survives from before this time. Most records begin when this world war ended, including the calendar system. According to the elves, the war lasted fifty-five years, nearly wiping-out all five of the races. The ramifications were vast with the orcs and goblins losing their patrons, condemned to Hades, while the other three races gained their gifts of magic.
