List of Divine
We mortals make some meager attempt to classify that which is too vast for our minds. So it is that we bind the shifting allegiances of gods to ideas such as good and evil. To allegiances and alliances, that in reality are more complex than can be presented in a simple list. But we try.
Court of Order
Let not a feeling of disquiet stop progress. Order holds back the end. It is our only saviour against the prophecies of chaos and absurdity. We will not accept that nothing can be done.
The court of order is synonymous with the divine Frugi, the Mother of Magic. She is a capricious Divine, with little love for mortals, except for their purpose in fulfilling her ultimate plan, and her court exists for that plan. She rages against inevitability, unable to accept that one day immortality will end.

The Silent Court
Her breath gave life to shadows, and from her sprung forth the peace of sleep, and all the things of the night came from her womb.
