Introduction to the Cosmology

The Smoke of Shadow

The Smoke of Shadow is a thick, black fog that covered all of the existence before Yeor came into being, and still does today. Upon Yeor asking the Divine Question, pockets of void within the Smoke were filled with material and use to create the celestial bodies that compose Yeor's domain.

Yeor, the Awakened Creator

Yeor, the Awakened Creator awoke within a pocket-void of the Smoke of Shadow's and quickly became self-aware. Upon this moment, he pondered life and then came to him the First Question. In the asking of this question, Yeor begat matter upon the cosmos and filled the gaps within the Smoke of Shadow.

Urye the Leviathan

Urye the Leviathan witnessed Yeor's Divine Light from a far distance, which sparked his urge to create. This interest in creation leads to the forming Mir, and as a consequence, humanity. Urye soon fell into a deep slumber and vanished into the Smoke of Shadow.

Planet of Mir

The Planet of Mir is home to the continent of Insennis and Humanity. It is where the four l'Gota went to when sent on their quest by Yeor to seek out an unkown energy source, from outside of his creation.

The l'Gota

Over time, as the l'Gota and their teachings had an effect on humanity, humanity themselves had an effect on them. Over the course of the second era the l'Gota and their Seraphim had come to be the physical and metaphorical emodiments of human nature itself. Their urge to fight, to survive, to make choices and suffer their consequences, to seek knowledge... All of this and more began to stem directly from the Engellic Spirits sent by Yeor.

Urye can be seen at the bottom, separate from the rest.
...and His Divine Light spread through the Smoke of Shadow, but was never able to reach as far as Mir, allowing Urye to form of natural processes, and it was he, the Leviathan and Deceiver who begot Mir upon the cosmos only for it to be torn apart in his slumber by Yeor's l'Gota, the Rights Four.
