Religion is the belief of a certain god or gods within Aether. There are different kinds worshipped across the world.

Known Religious Types

The Faith of the Lord

The Faith of the Lord is the religion that most believe in, and is the accepted religion of the Allied Nations, being worshipped by citizens of Ancora Canorica, Besmarka, Novalia, Kratonia and Northern Anathar. The Faith's god is referred to only as the "Lord". Ancora is considered the "Capital of the Faith" due to be highly religious.

God of Fate

The God of Fate, Unmei, is the god worshipped in Kyloto, and is seen to be the one in charge of dictating the fates of the people in the world.

Sun God

The Sun God, Nar, is the god worshipped by the people of South Anathar. The Pharaoh's selected Priests dedicate their time researching what is claimed to be the Sun God's four aspects. The Great Pyramid of Miftah is also known as "Nar's Holy Step".

World Tree

The World Tree, Förmyndare, is a god that apparently takes the form of a large tree, which governs the existence of magic.

Lord of the Sea

The Lord of the Sea, Theos, is a god of sorts that was worshipped by Ancient Kratonians, and is today considered rare in terms of worship. Despite this, most pirates seem to believe in the Lord of the Sea.

The Light

Avalonis is a mysterious prophetic deity that serves as a guidance of sorts to Paladins of Regolia. Avalonis' "light" has been known to lead them to serve others, no matter what morality that person has. It is believed that clairvoyancy, without the use of a third eye, is one of her light's gifts. She is believed to by the "sister" of Nyvene.

The Eye

The Eye is a mysterious god believed by the religious movement known as the Myriad. The Eye is reported to be able to see everything. People known to possess a third eye are said to be "blessed" by being lent its sight.

Qing Jinlong and Ju Hielong

Qing Jinlong, also known as the Golden Dragon of Light, is a deity believed to be the creator of Shanzhu, and is associated with purity and life.

Ju Heilong, also known as the Black Dragon of Darkness, is known as Qing Jinlong's sibling, and is believed by the people of Shanzhu to be the creator of Hormida and its people, who are considered demons in Shanzhu's culture. Ju Heilong is associated with evil, death and corruption.

Lake Goddess

The Lake Goddess, Nyneve, as an old god that is still believed in some parts of Regolia. She is believed to be the one who armed the Regolian Knight with his sword, and was the one who granted King Harold the power to become king. She is believed to be the "sister" of Avalonis. She is associated with the Acanthus flower.

Gods of Alchemy

Apollon and Phoebe are a twinned pair of deities known to be associated with alchemy, and represent the sun and the moon, respectively.

Apollon is said to have the fierce will of a lion, and is said to be destined to consume the sun. Meanwhile, Phoebe is said to possess the gentle nature of a deer, and serves as the emmisary of the moon, using her bat-like wings to travel from there.

It is said that the absence of Apollon and Phoebe would spell the end of the world, while the union of the two is said to be a blessing. The Solstice of the Sun, an annual total eclipse, exists to celebrate this harmony.

The Sun and Moon Stones are associated with these gods.

Blinding One

This deity is considerably mysterious due to the fact that it is very little known. The Blinding One is a supposed god that is reported to intend to steal the light of the twins Apollon and Phoebe. Azoth considers the mysterious Black Box to be a gift from the god, while the Sabari First Host considered this particular deity to be "extraterrestrial".

Texts imply that the Blinding One's objective was spurred on by the loss of something of its own, which it wishes to replace by force. While Apollon represent the Sun, and Phoebe represents the Moon, the Blinding One is said to represent both light in general, and the darkness of the eclipse.
