There are, as all know, three Clans of the Gods. These are the Night Lodge, the Sky House, and Those Who Stand Apart.
The Night Lodge
The Night Lodge are old gods who came to Mawr with the Brothers and the first Kingdoms. Those Who Stand Apart may have come with the Kings, but may have already been here among the races of Mawr.
Bel is Honor, Glory in Combat, and Victory. His color is White. Often called the “Fair Slayer”, also a title for heroes who dignify themselves through combat. Bel’s white standard is raised before any battle and the parties negotiate their war honorably. White flags and white outfits are common in training areas.
Macháin is mistress of the Fílidh (bards) and all poets and singers and artists. It is she who invented Language and gave speech to the races of the world. Any servant of hers who learns to read the trapped souls of the written word is immediately forsaken by her. Her colors are gold and black, and tartans. She is sometimes called “The Singer”, or “Old Woman History” or Siar na Siaraí, “Speaker of Speakers”.
Dána is the Luck whom all alternately curse or praise. Her color is silver. She’s called the Gambler, and the Doxie.
Ursean is a wanderer of all Roads and Ways. His color is brown, and his symbol is the open door, and is used often for public houses along the paths of Mawr.
The lover pair of Druys, Goddess of Fertility and Ventain, God of the Hunt keep sacred the natural sites of Mawr, and are, it’s said, the source of all mortal urgings.
The Sky House
The powers of the Sky House came to Mawr some say from the South, and are relatively new to the land.
Chief among these is Gaudr, Lord of the Lighted Vault of Heaven. His wife is Gaer, Mistress of Clear Day and Gentle Rain.
Their get: Pronabbyn, Goddess of the Dawn, Naur, the Storm Queen, and Baer, God of Ice and Winter.
There are Solas, the personification of Light, and his wife Baetha, Mistress of growing things. Their purview is the day and the quiet, natural world.
Those Who Stand Apart
These gods take no part in the affairs of dark and light, but wander the invisible strands of the world.
Ddurn is lord of the Grey World where spirits walk, and keeper of the dead.
Mabinown – the Free God, who changes all he touches.
Súil was the hope of Reunion of light and dark, but died in the coming of her twins:
- Ternir is the spinner of prophecy, told in the grey light of Pronnabyn’s Dusk,
- Ciánan is the Seer, who knows every secret. It was he who trapped the language of Macháin in writing, binding wisdom for the future.
The title for a priest is “Siar”, meaning speaker.
