The gods are a group of twenty five deities who embody and represent the different forces found in nature. Although the group of deities have the smallest population, with only twenty five members, they are the most powerful beings in world of Belizia.
The Óla Theós and her three forms are the first generation of gods. She comes into being before the birth of the universe and it is from her the other gods of Belizia owe their lineage to. The goddess of creation, destruction, and rebirth she and her forms represent all things created in the universe.
Nārāzagī, Divasa, Rātri, Bhūmaṇḍala, Sāgara, and Samudra are the six children of the Óla Theós. With the exception of Nārāzagī, the gods of the second generation embody the three major primordial realms to which they rule and preside over. Divasa and Rātri rule over the realm of the sky, Bhūmaṇḍala rules over the realm of the earth, and Sāgara and Samudra rule the realm of the dead in the seas and oceans.
The rest of the gods are the children gods of various gods from the second generation and make up the third and final generation of the gods. There are eighteen gods and goddesses in this generation and make up the large proportion of the population of the gods, however, of the three generations, these gods are the weakest having only power and dominion over the element they rule. Like their parents they represent various forces of nature and their powers extend into the forces of nature they embody.
In the beginning there was Óla Theós and the universe. The Óla Theós wandered aimlessly around in the universe for countless millennia. Growing tired of the emptiness of the universe the Óla Theós found a bare patch in the fabric of the void and wished to fill the space with a planet. Knowing that a planet can only be made from the heart of a god, the Óla Theós gave birth to the first god, Nārāzagī the god of fire. After giving birth to Nārāzagī the Óla Theós took his heart and used it as the spark for her new planet and thereby diminishing Nārāzagī's power greatly. Realizing her new planet was complete but still very bare, the Óla Theós gave birth to more gods and told them to combine their powers with her newly formed planet and as a result Belizia was created.
After the creation of Belizia, the Óla Theós told her children to go play on the new planet. There each of the Óla Theós's children fell in love with one another, married, and in turn claimed each of the three realms as their domain to preside over. Divasa and Rātri claimed the realm of the sky, Bhūmaṇḍala claimed the realm of the earth, finally Sāgara and Samudra claimed the realm of the dead in the seas and oceans. Encouraged by their mother, each of the gods began experimenting with the creation of life and soon the rest of the gods were born.
This brought much joy to the Óla Theós's heart to see, laugh, and play with her children and grandchildren. After many millennia of playing and peace on Belizia, the Óla Theós became weary and exhausted and separated herself into her three forms. Her three lunar granddaughters Yuèqiú, Yuèguāng, and Yuèliàng used their powers to each create a moon for which each of the Óla Theós three forms can be housed and slumber in. With Yuèqiú's moon housing the creation goddess, Yuèguāng's moon housing the preserver goddess, and Yuèliàng's moon housing the destruction goddess, the Óla Theós finally went into a deep slumber.
War of the GodsEdit
The gods dwelt on Belizia in peace for a time until disagreements between the second generation gods began over how the balance of Belizia should be maintained. Disagreements led to conflict, conflict led to strife, and eventually strife lead to war over the elements of Belizia. Lines were drawn and sides were chosen as loyalties were called into question. However despite the number of allies in each party, the gods were all evenly matched with one another. So in an attempt to gain an advantage they began creating new life forms who would fight in their name and swear allegiance to their gods.
Sāgara and Samudra created the dryads, a skilled and loyal race who could lure lesser gods into traps and imprison them. Bhūmaṇḍala created the forna a strong and clever race able to sneak into their enemy camps as spies. Divasa and Rātri being the last to create a race after hearing of their siblings' creation, created the humans who, although not as physically fit as forna or skilled as dryads, had huge potential for greatness.
With these newly formed races and armies the war between the gods continued for 1000 years.
Court of the GodsEdit
After 1000 years of war, a ceasefire was called and every god agreed to come together in truce. It was after this a court was set up so that gods can express their grievances and seek the proper reprimands from their accused. Bhūmaṇḍala, because of her just and fair nature, was elected as judge who will preside over the court and render verdict on all disputes in complete fairness. Many grievances were placed before the court, however the most important topic was what the gods should do with their newly created races now that they were not at war with each other.
Divasa and Rātri loved and cared for their creations the humans and expressed their desire to keep letting the humans live and create a new race the Simo to be companions to the humans. Bhūmaṇḍala also found value and favor in her creation the fornas. It was Sāgara and Samudra alone, who expressed their desire to eradicate the dryads and start again anew. This led to great debate on whether Sāgara and Samudra had the right to destroy the dryads or not. Eventually it was ruled by the court that they dryads would continue to live in the world of Belizia.
After the event of the court of the gods, all the gods decided to retreat into their respective realms so that they can rest and recover. And it is towards the end of the Pre History era that the gods' participation in Belizia begin to wane.
