The Darkness Between Stars
The God Lir
The greatest of the gods, who has seemly even cheated death
Lir often appears as a massive sea turtle with a tree of coral growing from her head. She is surrounded by a luminous sea and swarms of sea creatures. In recent times she is seldom seen yet sailors tell of seeing a great glowing swab of sea moving under the dark skies of the storms.
In the past Lir was accompanied by a woman made of coral who was know as Lir’s Voice. This figure has not been seen since her rebirth.
The Great Other was born from the nether when the world Lir was formed. She cared for Lir and her first children, the Rasha, until the God Wars came. She survived the war against the draconian and took part in the cleansing that banished them to the Astral Wastes, but her homeworld suffered little.
When the Ancients arrived from their long journey, she welcomed them as her second children and helped them to put their dark origins behind them. She was ultimately betrayed by the few Ancients that remained after the great sacrifice in the war against Ro-Rex that created Sa-Nah-Gig. Her death was the requirement to bring the Draconian back from the Astral Wastes in order to fianlly slay Ro-Rex.
Upon her death the oceans evaporated to form the great silt seas and the skies burned for many days. Lir was truly one of the greatest among the Others, and unlocked secrets that could promise true immortality.
In the Age of Corruption a brave band of heroes brought about her resurrection. Her new life brought a great flood and rain down on Lir. And the world have been reduced to a world of water except for small islands.
Many churches have sprung up after her return, but she neither speaks nor guides the living. More mysterious she has left giant eggs on the isle The Throne of Lir in the Lir-Khan Sea. These eggs have been taken to other godless worlds by believers to hopefully restore the divine to those places that have lost all to Ro-Rex’s war march through the stars and The Great War from long ago.
