Deities of Kharav

Servants of the Creator

The Creator is said to be responsible for the world, but the Creator’s angels are the beings who receive regular tribute and worship from the many races on Kharav. Most faiths teach that the Creator first made his angels to assist with the making of the world and its people, and that these beings remained close to his creation after the Creator moved on. The people of Kharav have come to think of these angels as gods in their own right.

All angels have many spheres of influence, but most are known best for either the race they created, the trade or tradition they began, or for which worldly function they control.
