The Creator

Many see The Creator as the ruler of the divh, others see it as a distant and alien hermit-divh who gave nothing of itself to mortals and thus shares nothing of its nature. The Creator is sometimes seen as the ruler of the divh, or just the most powerful of their number; others say he is something older and greater that came before. Some cults see it as braggadocios, creating the world to prove its superiority; others think that all of reality is a failed experiment. The generally accepted truth is that the Creator set into motion the series of events that gave birth to the world and that once the world existed he had misgivings about its creation, and wanted to again unmake it. Because few faiths that acknowledge the Creator (and most do) agree on this point there are few cults that venerate the Creator. Only lunatics and doomsday cults of crazed fanatics venerate an alien creature that seeks to unmake the world, and so alien is the Creator to mortals that they have no conception of how to venerate it. Or even if he seeks veneration.

Depictions


The Creator is usually depicted as utterly alien. A number of faiths describe it as an amorphous blue mass, sometimes he forms the very roof of the world - the blue sky - with its body. Others describe it as a ball of light that contains all of the wisdom of the world, like a star that speaks. Many landsmen religions call it as a giant, malformed man having its head in its chest, nine arms, legs that bend backward, greasy grey skin, a single eye, fingers for hair, or all manner of impossible deformities. To the Ghans he is merely an eye floating suspended in space, while the Ral see it as a face embedded in a hunched but powerful torso. The only commonality seems to be that he never resembles any living thing more than passingly, always being utterly alien and unnatural to the world.
