Perfect balance and parasitic support
I alw's feel bad for Dimiti, out on Bellrose Island, all alone. Well, all alone except for that... thing on 'is back. And all the Rendlings that keep crawlin out from it.
Stuck upon one of the larger islands of the country known as the Shattered Isles
, Dimiti is in the same state as all other God-husks
-- stuck in a mindless loop, executing it until the end of time. Enormous muscles strain beneath matte purple skin, as he strains under the constant weight of the pool of Achromatic Sanguinity
upon his back. The God-husk would likely stand among the tallest of all the dead Gods, if it weren't for the massive tumour-like growth keeping him down. Dimiti spends every moment of his existence on nearly all fours, as he keeps the pool level, rarely spilling any of the mysterious liquid within.
From the center of the pool upon Dimiti's back grows a second torso within the pool of luminescent white liquid; generally referred to as "Dimitop" or "Thing
" by locals of the Shattered Isles, this second torso is not thought to be a second entity. Instead, Entheologists
believe both bodies of Dimiti to be the same
In the prosperous age before The Seven Day War
, Dimiti focused nearly all of his attention into keeping the world balanced. The muscular god felt that his domain was the domain of balance, and fairness. Much to the annoyance of the other 13 gods, Dimiti would ensure he was present for any deal, bargaining, trade, or agreement between the gods, so as to ensure fair trade. Documents recovered from The Comprilith
outline Dimiti's habits quite clearly -- any transactions between gods that managed to be recorded always reference Dimiti being there as mediator.
Dimiti took his attention to balance, and focused it in on everything he did in his life. Research shows that Dimiti in particular enjoyed creating systems; he was fascinated with the input and output of said systems. Much of what the god accomplished has been lost to the ages, though word of the systems he liked to create still exist in spoken record and tradition of the people of the Shattered Isles. Those who call the Isles home claim that their way of live, and rule of law, are traced back all the way to pre-war Dimiti.
Pure equality's what Dimiti wanted. An eye for an eye sounds like balance, but tha's not what he meant. Pure equality means taking every single factor into account - not just end results.
Scraps from The Comprilith
A multitude of various written agreements in varying forms of decomposition, found scattered in one of the lower floors of the Comprilith. Each document was found signed off with "Overseen by Dimiti"
A particularly vivid account of Dimiti residing over a theft case. The account was found tucked into the back of a book on an entirely different subject, and details the balance Dimiti found in giving more to the thief in question, despite their crimes. The case is often studied to better understand true balance.
A cracked stone tablet, with only the words "...llow the law of Dimiti, withou..." remaining.
Born on the 2nd day of the 19 Days of Creation.
0 gods killed during The Seven Day War.
Records are un-clear as to which day Dimiti died.
Stabbed in the back by the goddess Miyu
Dimiti is nearly entirely stationary in modern times. Any movement the god does is slight, as he shuffles about on his hands and knees. Dimiti appears to be confined to the island he is on, as the God-husk
avoids the ocean.
Location of one of the three Rendling
hotspots, Dimiti is constantly creating monstrosities that crawl from the pool of Achromatic Sanguinity on his back.
While large amounts of destruction come as a direct result of the Rendlings spawned from Dimiti, this destruction is not attributed to the God-husk himself. Instead, the ruination done by the God-husk is deemed to be merely the scores of trees that are flattened as Dimiti moves slightly around his island.
If there is any intelligence or awareness left within Dimiti, it is now hyper focused on a singular task. All of Dimiti's attention to balance has been boiled down to a single point; physical balance, of the pool of liquid on his back. Dimiti responds to no other outside stimuli other than keeping the pool level.
