Created with the Cosmos, or brought into existence along with their domain, Perennial Deities just are. Their existence and presence is often obvious in the workings of their domain, but there is little proof of their existence other than through the miracles performed by their most devout followers.

Born as mortals or otherwise existing in some mortal form before becoming Gods, Ascended Deities are closer to the realm of man than any other deity or power. Some of them may have walked the world for years before their ascension to godhood, and are quite familiar with the hardships of mortal life. Such deities often gather a lot of followers, especially among those that live in "holy lands" that said deity used to travel on.

The Elemental Sovereigns are primordial entities, the literal embodiment of the raw, primal elements found in the Cosmos. They do not concern themselves with mortal disputes, and do not identify with - or recognize - classifications of ethics, like "good" and "evil".
Scholars suggest that while the Sovereigns may assume smaller elemental shapes to interact with the world, those avatars remain colossal; to move in their true form would change the shape of the world.

The Dragon Deities were the first Gods to emerge in Amelor; Children of The Four, and Grandchildren of The Void himself, every other cosmic power treats them with respect born either out of fear or admiration.

The distant deities are unknown to the common man, and even most scholars. They may be beings of such cosmic power that no mortal can even remotely relate to, or entities that never harbored followers, temples or dogma. Some may be referenced in academia as cosmic truths, others may only be found in whispered legends or drunken tales.

Personification of the entire world. Most scholars disagree if she was ever an actual deity.
