Pantheon of Ebbe
The Pantheon of Ebbe was created by Ahura Izha when she transcended mortality and became the Over-God of Ebbe.
Upon becoming the Over-God of Ebbe Azhura Izha transcended morality, species, gender, mortality, and physical form and used these things to create the Pantheon. Azhura Izha also managed to destroy most of society by transcending.
In time the gods that were created by Azhura Izha either raised other beings to lesser godhood or procreated with each other or with mortals to create the pantheons of intermediate, lesser, and racial gods. Eventually through magic, deals with the gods and denizens of the Nine hells, consorting with beings from beyond the beyond, killing greater demons and lesser gods, and plain luck many mortals would be raised to the status of DemiGod.
- Hvar: Great disrespect for chaos and a deep love of Law and Beaureaucracy are the only ideas the various nations of Ebbe hold when they talk of Hvar, outside of his name of course. He gave the gift of law to a world that had none and the gift of order where only chaos existed. For these things he is held in highest esteem by those who value law and order, though they could do without the concept of beaureaucracy being born into the world. Some say that the sun rises each day because through some series of events it became indebted to Hvar and must do what he tells it to. Lawful Good. Symbol is the Sun.
- Haurvatat: The vain and boastful sister of Hvar, Haurvatat stands for what she says Hvar has not the stomache for. She believes that beauty is justice and justice is what she brings to the world. She appears to the just as a beautiful and exotic maiden while appearing to the injust as a hideous old hag. There are more than a few petty despots and tyrannical dictators that have went to bed with a stunningly gorgeous woman only to awaken next to a wretched old hag. Many women venerate Haurvatat while most men regard her in respectful fear. Lawful Good. Symbol is a set of golden scales.
- Arishtat: The hound of the gods he is the embodyment of loyalty, obedience, and honesty. He waits upon the clouds for the return of the forgotten ones, a duty which was given him by his creator before time was time. Some say he appears as a hound with a coat of golden splendor while others say he appears simply as a dog holding a sheathed sword in his mouth as if waiting for his master to retrieve it. Lawful Good. Symbol is a Sheathed Sword.
- Mao: Always the scholar and magician Mao has dominion over all spells and magic of Ebbe. A very strange and sometimes unpredictable old man, his home is in the moon. Many believe that he watches over all and records every event from the largest cataclysm to the smallest gift so that when the Forgotten Ones return they will have record of what had transpired during their absence. The people of Ebbe call their moon Mao as well, but only a few of the more eccentric priests will tell you that it’s because the one selfish act that Mao has committed was naming the moon after himself in the annals of history. Neutral Good. Symbol is The Moon.
- Airyamah: The divine caretaker and friend to all that live, Airyamah is but a child. He walks among the people, here and there, mending broken friendships and broken flesh alike. Through his healing and friendship he has redeemed even the most black hearted men ever to walk Ebbe. He is at odds with Haurvatat, believing that any man can be redeemed no matter how far into darkness he has fallen. It is told that Haurvatat, in a rare fit of rage, once thrust her spear at Airyamah’s heart only to have it shatter on contact with his open hand. Neutral Good. Symbol is a pair of open hands.
- Dena: She is the grass that the gods walk upon, the flowers that bloom around the celestial palace, and the coming of change. Dena is a caring and nurturing goddess who brings spring to the world, gently reminds Hvar to have the sun rise each morning, and among those births watched over by a midwife of Dena none have been stillborn and no mother has died during labor. Peculiar is that for every shrine to Dena there are both an equal shrine to Ahriman and a lesser shrine to Haoma. Neutral Good. Symbol is a flower in bloom.
- Draspa: She is a Milkmaid, humble in appearance and in attitude. She watches over the farmers of the world and all that they watch over and ensures that as long as the farmers care for their land and cattle, they will not want for milk and bread. She is not so humble that she cannot steal the attention of Hvar for some time of the year. When she steals his attention away from Dena spring ends and summer begins as she coaxes him into rising earlier and resting later. Symbol is a cow.
- Manah: She is called the Three Fold Maiden by some, others call her Haurvatat’s bane, and yet others simply call her their eternal wife. She is beauty in it’s purest form, love unbreakable, and passion at its height. She walks among the other gods in the Celestial Palace clothed in nothing but a pair of black silk gloves and her own flowing red hair. To become her priest is to become hers in body, mind, and spirit. To wed her is to know her love and passion for all eternity. Chaotic good. Symbol is a gloved female hand.
