The First Gods

Before time there were the Old Ones: Astrea of Queen of Time, and Ouranos of King of Space. Together, these two reigned over all the gods who they created from their divine energies. Over eons unfathomable, Astrea and Ouranos grew close, and soon, in relative terms, the two produced an offspring: Arkon Prince of Spite who hid his divine nature from his parents.

Together these three created the known universe and the new gods, the first pantheon, whom Astrea and Ouranos treated as their children. Arkon, full of rage for being placed on the same level as these lesser gods, rose up against his parents, and tried to strike them down for his perceived sleight. The war lasted many millennia, as Arkon created dark terrors, world-eaters and demons, to fight by his side.

Eventually Ouranos fought his firstborn son as the first pantheon held back his forces of darkness. Ouranos struck down Arkon, bringing him near death, but he hesitated, knowing his heart he could not destroy his first son. Instead he trapped Arkon within himself, using his own divine spirit to trap Arkon within his being in the mortal plane. Astrea, heartbroken with the betrayal of her firstborn and the loss of her love, ran weeping into the void of space to grieve.

Ouranos’ divine spirit attracted nearby matter, which eventually became the planet Ouran, where the first pantheon reigns should Arkon return to destroy creation.
