Knowledge over all
They cared not for humanity, but rather only for what humanity could provide.Patronsclicktaphere for bonus info
A Partnership of Mutual UnderstandingRecords show that in the early days, T'kalia and Rak'tos were not considered friends nor even partners. Some quirk of their personality caused the two of them to have an emotional distance from one another. However, what the gods did share was a mutal love, or hunger, for knowledge.
The two of them wove space and time into an intricate tapestry, and housed it within an incredible tower.
DisagreementsThough exceptionally rare, disagreements would ocassionally occur between the two masters of the Comprilith. The number of these chance events can be counted upon one hand, and they always happened regarding key elements of the great library tower -- though never on issues of design or usage intent, and instead relating to things like process and timelines. However, because of a nearly perfectly shared vision between the gods, nearly every disagreement was solved easily, with either god clearly explaining their stance and convincing the other with little difficulty. The only problem that took T'kalia and Rak'tos longer than a mere moment to solve was the issue of what to name the tower -- it's said that the two of them discussed this off and on for years before the name "The Comprilith" was finally decided on.
DisasterHowever, before work on the Comprilith was able to be fully completed, and their vision realized, disaster struck; He'an was murdered. This brutal action set off a short and violent civil war between the remaining gods on Cathedris that resulted in every one of them dying and becoming God-husks instead. The tower was thus left in an incomplete state -- broken and twisted, just like the two former gods that once worked to complete it.
Other PartnersThe relationship between T'kalia and Rak'tos was one purely built of shared interests in preserving knowledge; outside of the project, the two gods did not interact that much, choosing instead to spend their time on other side projects or with other gods. Of the two, T'kalia is most famously said to have found companionship in the presence of another god. Mythology states that the very first Sonosap Willow ever created was one crafted by T'kalia himself, as a gift to the god of Growth and Decay, Xiuthan.
In that tree, T'kalia spoke, and with his power, froze time -- forever trapping the world's first message of love within.
