Important Characters



  Those are the main gods worshipped by the country and who leads it through the local gods' Council. Praying to them is mandatory, and their churches are powerful.   Cécile's family worships the water god, and he is the main character she's going to interact with in the novel. The forging god is his rival, and the two of them are the main gods of the country, as well as the main drivers of the plot.       The architecture god and the war god are the two other main gods of the country who temper—or provoke—the water and forging god.       The trade god and the sun god are also major gods, but they're less important for the country as their attention is split abroad.
