Davyrma (Dah-virr-mah), the Dragon Queen, Goddess of Fire and Sorcery. During the Elder Days, she lived a quiet life atop Mount Viranax in the Mountains of the Forge Folk, waiting for her day of reckoning with Dracorys. After the conditions of Norath’s doom were satisfied, she became the mother of all evil dragons and began serving the Dark Lord.
Dracorys (Drah-core-iss), the Dragon Lord, The Platinum Drake, the Sky Lord, God of Strength, Power and Magik. During the Elder Days, he lived alone atop Mount Aragal in the Mountains of Mist, waiting for his day of reckoning with Davyrma. After the conditions of Norath’s doom were satisfied, he became the father of all good dragons and joined his fellow gods in the Heavens.
Earth Mother, the Maiden, the Mother, the Crone, the Keeper of the Seals, the Guardian of the Wards, the Mistress of the Earth Song, the Goddess of the Rites. During the Years of Glory, she appeared at rings of power to receive the priestesses’ channeled prayers and strengthen the Seals. She fled the world in the Battle of Unending Night after the Dark Lord nearly killed her, retreating to Ardilyn, a fold in the Girdle, to recover her strength. In the Age of Man, the Earth Mother was worshipped in Sangrithar, where she was known as the Maiden.
Humak (hoo-makk), The Beast Lord, The Ram Lord, Overlord of the Beast Tribes, King of Beasts, God of Animals. During the Elder Days, he roamed Rolling Meadows and the unsettled regions near the Caverns of Gloom. Humak was a little known and little understood god, one more revered by the beasts than the people of Sangrar. In truth, he worked harder than most gods towards the fulfillment of the prophecies, but was never given proper credit.
Norath (norr-ath), the Seeress of Aux, the Goddess of Fate, Destiny Doom and Knowledge. During the Elder Days, she lived in Aux, the Cavern of Vision, nestled in the Crystal Caves, attended by the Pangral. People came from all around the world to Aux and to hear her pronouncements of the future. Some viewed her as a shephard for the people of Sangrar, gently guiding them towards fulfillment of the prophecies. Others thought her a manipulative bitch who twisted everything to get her way. I’m somewhere between those extremes. She believed in the prophecies and had good, if ignorant, intentions, and the resolve to do what it took to see them fulfilled, though she wasn’t above taking petty vengeance. The doom she set upon Dracorys and Davyrma was influenced not a little by her father’s rivalry with Harnor. .
Shamran (shahm-rahn), Master of the Wilds, Lord of Plants, God of the Forest and Trees. He carried a sickle he named Asildur. During the Elder Days, he lived in the Ryndall Forest, near his beloved Tympani. He entered little into the Tales of the Elder Days and was nearly as forgotten in the Age of Man as he was in the New Age. Were it not for his participation in the hatching of the Vanara, I might not have included him. Kandol thought him jealous of Garruth, his fellow earth Elehu for becoming Lord of the Fall, but conceded that Shamran might simply have been more at ease with plants than people. Other than the Tympani, he held little discourse with the Elder Races.
Sudnar (sood-nahr), the Tiger, the Protector, the Second, God of Protections, Escapes and Rescues. During the Elder Days, he traveled Sangrar far and wide in the company of Razeu, his sabre-toothed tiger, rescuing many an unfortunate person, and when resting from his journeys, he lived in a cave on the northenr coast of the world near the Boiling Bay and his friend, Umbar. One hundred and thirty years after Umbar fell from Heaven, Sudnar, wearing a mortal guise and bearing the name Arcanicles, came to Sangrithar and restored his memories.
