The major gods of the Celestial Court, the Upper Chamber of the Greater Deities, giving its name to the entire pantheon, the Hall of Mind regrouping the gods of emotions and spirit, and the Animal Court of the animal deities. They influence heroes all over the world and send their servants help them, acting as the greatest forces of good in activity, though less than they would like to be after having to retreat from the Earthly Planes after the apocalyptic First Battle and the Enforced Cold War against the corrupted Dark Gods...


Primal Deities

Arn, the universe personified, and the three elder gods who sprang from him at the very Beginning and shaped all Planes of Existence, but disagreed on what to make of it. They created the Young Gods who rule Titan, but their conflict worsened shortly after the First Battle, forcing the Gods to intervene and to exile them. As of now, they lost interest in creation and their whereabouts are totally unknown. Their very existence and role in Creation is long forgotten, though some of their cultists remain.

A priest of Arn before a statue representing him
The Supreme Being above everything in existence, who created the Primal Deities. Worshippers of the gods don't know about him and his role in Creation, but he is worshipped as the heart of a monotheistic religion in The Isles of Dawn, Fantasy Counterpart Culture of Medieval China.

  • Above Good and Evil: Arn predates both and cares for none. According to his priests he wants the best for the universe, but he clearly looks for the big picture beyond mortals' and even gods' comprehension.
  • Above the Gods: Taken Up to Eleven. He is above the Primal Deities, themselves an example of the trope, making even the Top God of the local Fantasy Pantheon a small fry by comparison.
  • All-Powerful Bystander: He could have easily stepped in and solved the conflict between his children, and their children, but for reasons unknown he left them to their own devices.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the entire universe, no less.
  • Bald of Awesome: He lacks hair and is the single mightiest being in existence.
  • Cosmic Entity: A Supreme Being above all else who encompasses the entire universe.
  • Divine Delegation: Arn is the source of everything, but he left the shaping and ordering of the universe to the Primal Deities... Who themselves did Divine Delegation of their own to create the Fantasy Pantheon.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: He is represented as a humanoid figure, but is never confirmed to look like this and is something far beyond mere representation.
  • Have You Seen My God?: The reason for his absence is never explained. (Aside from the obvious, as he could solve all conflicts by lifting an eyebrow.) He is implied to be the universe, with everyone and everything being a part of him, waiting for all to attain perfection and Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence.
  • The Ghost: Arn never appears in the story, and even the Mythopoeia merely mentions it at the beginning.
  • God: Arn is this both as the Supreme Being several magnitudes of power and scale above all else, and more classically as the center of the sole monotheistic religion of Titan.
  • Greater-Scope Paragon: The mightiest benevolent force of the universe bar none.
  • Heroic Build: Judging from the statues in his likeness, describing him as a "hunk" would put it mildly...
  • The Maker: Of everything. Or to be more precise, of the raw source of everything to be shaped by his children.
  • Meaningful Name: In-universe, his name means "The First".
  • The Old Gods: The oldest of all.
  • The Omnipotent: His power knows no limit.
  • The Omnipresent: He is everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
  • The Omniscient: His knowledge knows no limit.
  • Our Gods Are Different: The closest thing to the Big G God of the setting, all interpretations at once.
  • Person of Mass Construction: He is the Beginning, he is all, all comes from him and exists through him.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Next to nothing is known about Arn, not the reason why he does not takes part in the conflict, not why he created the other gods.
  • Time Abyss: "In the Beginning there was Arn, and Arn was the Beginning." Enough said.

The Primal God of Creation and creator of the Earthly Planes of Existence. He regards Creation as perfect and does not want to change a thing.
