A.K.A.: “The Creators of the World”
The Ascended Beings who observe and maintain, most at a distance, some… closer than others. Though not all were directly involved in the world’s creation, all are often collectively referred to as such.
The Three Sides of the Coin.
The ones whose domains deal exclusively with the Darker side of things, the Lighter, and the In-Between.
Hecate – The Pathfinder; The Formless; Patron of Werewolves; The unknown founder of Mystryal. Though little is known of Hecate’s true form, they are one of the most easily contacted of the Creators, being brought to any point in the world by a Summoning Circle.
Hecate will make deals with anyone who contacts them- but only if the request is heartfelt and sincere. Even then, deals may go wrong for reasons even Hecate never suspected. A lover of delivering karmic retribution, Hecate swore that another Cataclysm War would never happen again, and so created Mystryal.
STATUS: ALIVE, BUT HIGHLY STRUNG UP.
Hergie – The Matron of Thieves; Observer of Luck; That One Cat. Most Mortals know little of she who created the Lucky Cat’s Guild, and that’s just how she likes it. Only her Kittens know of her, and interact with her regularly. Only certain people who are not her Kittens know how to contact her directly.
Hergie observes the flow of Luck within the world. And although she is known to those who know her as a Thief and a Cat… she is somehow Lovers with Hecate, and considers herself their other half.
STATUS: NO’NYA BUSINESS! :3
Yaovi – The Reaper in Green. She who deals in Death and Rebirth. The Reaper who takes souls, and reincarnates them into new lives. Yaovi is the most well known of the Creators, preferring not to hide herself or her job, and presides over her realm in an otherwise normal mansion on Green Skull Island. She, like Hecate, can be summoned or contacted with a well known circle and symbol-set.
That said, Yaovi seems to take a peculiar pride in being as confusing as possible at times. Even her fellow Ascendants can never be entirely sure whether she knows more than she’s letting on, or if she has some plan hidden away, waiting to be sprung…. or worse, that she has no idea what’s going on and is struggling to maintain an air of control.
STATUS: ASHES TO ASHES, DUST TO DUST.
The Reaper’s Assistant. Though the face changes over the years, a person standing at the Reaper’s side has been a mainstay part of Yaovi’s lore since the Cataclysm War. Nobody is quite sure if it’s the same person reincarnated time and time again, or if they are someone new, but regardless, they are there, and present, even if you could be forgiven for ignoring their presence in the background.
Currently, the role of the Assistant is taken up by a young girl who seems strangely more competent than her age would let on.
STATUS: GROWING PAINS AWAIT.
The Unfortunate Family
The ones for whom sorrow and tragedy struck through a Series of Unfortunate Events.
Alcor and Mizar – they who ascended together, thus being commonly called “Twin Stars” despite not being related. They who died together to put down the threat posed by Kyiahlnah. The Two Moons were renamed in their honor after the Cataclysm War.
STATUS: DECEASED & REINCARNATED.
Cypher – The Son within The Sun. Child of Alcor and Mizar. Attempted to banish his daughter to the Sun, only to have the spell turned back upon himself, leading to his imprisonment. Even so, from there, he would work tirelessly to keep his daughter imprisoned within her own cage.
STATUS: IMPRISONED. MOURNING.
Kur’lina – The Mother, the Murdered. A young, traveling Fire Demon who wandered into the dimension that would house the new world while it was still being created. She who became Cypher’s Wife, and mothered Kyiahlnah. Was tragically murdered by her own daughter, kicking off the Cataclysm War.
STATUS: DECEASED. REINCARNATED?
Kyiahlnah – The Traitor Princess, bringer of the Cataclysm. She who was born into her powers long after the world had been created. She observed, and learned, and grew up… and yet something terrible must have happened in her previous life for her to turn on her family in such a violent way.
The Guardian Trio
Not much is known about these three- save that they have always preferred their solitude, even before the Cataclysm War forced them into the roles of the Gatekeepers of Kyiahlnah’s eternal Cell.
Prizen – Protector of Tomorrow’s Wind. Said to be he who wrote the very core of the world into existence, and maintains the very delicate balance at its core through constant writing of an unknown language.
STATUS: THOUGHT TO BE IN TWO PLACES AT THE SAME TIME.
Collen – Shield of the Claw’s Guard. Said to be she who greases the gears of the Courts. Though it is the the realm of Mystryal to solve crimes, it is her domain to rightly punish those guilty of the most foul ones.
STATUS: STUBBORNLY SCRUBBING AWAY AT BLOOD STAINS.
Zuzol – Muse of the Serenade’s Song. Said to be she who inspires others to create by traversing through their dreams, singing songs that translate into ideas.
STATUS: NOBODY HAS HEARD HER SING IN ALMOST TWENTY YEARS.
