* One from the backstory: second edition sourcebook Manual of Exalted Power: The Alchemicals states that in the ancient times before the Primordial War, the weakest Primordial, [[OurTitansAreDifferent Autochthon]] [[MechanicalLifeforms The Great]] [[GadgeteerGenius Maker]], encountered humans after the king of the Primordials, [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking the Empyreal Chaos]], tore down his workship for not being exactly as respectful as he wished, and the other Primordials mocked him for his weakness and endemic sickness.. He wandered Creation and eventually found the first humans he'd ever encountered (humans being a recent invention by the other Primordials) and grew enamoured of them. In time, when he saw they managed to create functioning socieites in spite of their weaknesses and that they used his three favorite inventions (Faith, Dogma and Tools), he came to love them even as they started worshipping him. And all this, BEFORE he was physically capable of real empathy, which he later rectified by basically performing brain surgery on himself so he could understand humans and his own creations the Mountain Folk better, and so became capable of empathy and love...all over beings so functionally weak and tiny they were amoebas compared to him.
