The Curse of Llishil
The Pantheon that once ruled over Dekurn was consumed by Llishil when she first entered this “new” territory. The Gods were caught by surprise and were unable to muster their full strength to fight Llishil. In their last moments before being completely consumed by Llishil the Gods gave their immortality and what was left of their powers to their heirs, the Demigods. The former Pantheon was as such:
First: The one who’s blood gave birth to the original Gods of the Dekurn Pantheon is a being who no longer resides in the Dekurn area. Not even the original Gods knew who the First was or if they even still live, only that their blood touched the ground of Dekurn, and from it came life.
Vulchura: the God of Death.
Vulchura was the bringer of death, ensuring that those who’s time had come met their deaths. While Vulchura was the God of Death he absolutely would not surrender those who died back to the realm of life… willingly. Anyone who died could be resurrected if they wanted it, however, parts of their souls would be forever ripped from them, trapped in the talons of Vulchura himself. Those who returned from death often lost emotions, permanently. Each time rips a new emotion from the returnee, no one can predict which emotion will be lost, and none are considered to be truly beneficial to have stolen. Vulchura’s bloodline was started from the first Vulchura like all the other Gods and Goddesses, the name passed down from generation to generation. The first Vulchura was born last of the Pantheon, as death is the last part of every life. Vulchura’s sacred animal is the Vulture, those who feed on death.
Lielurn: the Goddes of Life (also Fertility).
Lielurn the First was the first of the Pantheon to be born; emerging from the blood of the First when it spilled upon the grounds of Dekurn.
Slinesul: the God of Fire.
Slinesul, Yanan, Nitasshy, and Nucerper were born at the same time, as a fusion from the breath and tears of Lielurn and Heengard, the god of the sun. Slinesul was created from the air of Lielurn and Heengard, empowered by the light that Heengard gave off. Slinesul’s body formed, robbed in flames that caught on the air that Nitasshy’s birth had created.
Yanan: the Goddess of Water.
Slinesul, Yanan, Nitasshy, and Nucerper were born at the same time, as a fusion from the breath and tears of Lielurn and Heengard, the god of the sun. Yanan was born directly from the tears of both Lielurn and Heengard, forming into a full Goddess before the tears could touch the ground.
Nitasshy: the God of Air.
Slinesul, Yanan, Nitasshy, and Nucerper were born at the same time, as a fusion from the breath and tears of Lielurn and Heengard, the god of the sun.
Slinesul, Yanan, Nitasshy, and Nucerper were born at the same time, as a fusion from the breath and tears of Lielurn and Heengard, the god of the sun. Nitasshy, the god of Air was the very breath that filled the lungs of both gods, fused together. Nitasshy’s movements create the currents of air, every sweap of his arm holds the potential to create a future breeze, gust of wind, or even a tornado.
Nucerper: The Goddess of Earth.
Slinesul, Yanan, Nitasshy, and Nucerper were born at the same time, as a fusion from the breath and tears of Lielurn and Heengard, the god of the sun. Nucerper was born from the tears of Lielurn and Heengard that fell into the blood of the first which had already begun to seep into the soil of Dekurn.
Heengard: The God of the Sun.
Heengard was born second, the glimmer of the First’s blood shone even in total darkness and could not be contained. Heengard rose into the blue oblivion, lighting up the world and filling Lielurn’s eyes with light. The two embraced, feeling that light and life could not exist without each other. When there tears of joy and breath from their lungs mingled with the blood of the First, they created Slinesul, Yanan, Nitasshy, and Nucerper.
Quoonath: The Goddess of the Moon.
Quoonath was born when Nucerper formed in the earth, forcing Quoonath out of the ground. Quoonath was lifted by the winds of Nitasshy, blown high into the sky opposite of Heengard. Yanan reached for Quoonath with her waves, trying to catch her but failed to do little more than keep her from drifting further. Quoonath found herself drifting alone, neither with her siblings below or above. Slinesul felt that Quoonath would be far to lonely on her own and sent up blood drenched soil of the First on his flames, creating a friend in the form of a moon to keep Quoonath company.
Vayrum: The God of Peace.
Vayrum was born from the act of Slinesul creating the second moon, his fingers digging into the bloody soil of Dekurn were filled with the good intentions of one seeking amends and peace. Vayrum formed in the cavity that the moon once filled.
Kuissat: the Goddess of War.
Kuissat was born in the same cavity that Vayrum filled, however Kuissat was born from Nucerper’s anger at Slinesul for taking part of the ground without her consent. The act filled Nucerper with rage, her fingers dug into the ground surrounding the pit, and from her emotions sprung the notion of war. Once Kuissat and Vayrum’s eyes met they began arguing and have never truly been able to reach an agreement since.
