More Info On The Gods

When Gods are not inhabiting a body they exist as an 'Essence.' They cannot directly interfere in the world. Their only means of connection being through non-physical means - dreams, omens, or other messages. This is due to an age old curse that still inflicts their kind. This curse has origins that date back to the beginning of time, and thus it is deeply shrouded in mystery. Only the oldest Gods themselves have any idea of how this curse was put upon them. Though the old ones rarely Emerge anymore, and thus the knowledge has been lost to those that choose to walk among the humans.

However it is known that The Curse and The Emergence are one and the same.

There are rules of course to the Emergence. Typically, a God may only Emerge once every Millenia from the point of death from its previous Emergence.

Gods cannot create bodies from nothing, they must take over an existing body. This can happen three ways, a God may Emerge into a body on the brink of death - this is the most common way as it limits the body from fighting back. Secondly, a God may Emerge into the body of a human that has been pre-destined for them. This is generally a parent "offered their first born" in exchange for something type of situation. The Third way is by permission of the host body. Gods may approach suitable bodies by sending omens or messages in a variety of ways.

The second a God emerges into the Body it consumes the memories of the host. The Emergence being a curse makes sense when it comes to realizing that the God is not simply inhabiting a body, but sharing it with the memories of the body. Though sometimes the line is even further blurred, causing a melding in the mind that can skew towards insanity. The Gods can often adopt the bodies personality, vices, and perhaps even cling to the idea of who they were 'before.'

Gods have different power levels, there are three well known types. Major, minor, and Lesser. The level of their power depends on the scope of their Dominion. For example, a God of War would be a Major god, as his Dominion is War and encompasses the entirety of that concept. Minor and Lesser Gods have control over more specific concepts.

After some deliberation and jamming I've decided to submit another reserve :)

Cherise Nijima | 21 | Eyes Yumei Nakajima | Living | Kagune | ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ


Under the spoiler I've written notes explaining what a "Kagune" is since it's 99% a species I stole from a certain manga and not from any particular myth. :P If this is all fine with you I will get started on a profile sometime tomorrow!

Species Notes:
Kagune (赫子, red child) were originally discovered in Japan and named after the blood that covered their bodies after feasting upon a human. For years they were thought to be unintelligent, ravenous monsters; however, as time passed and more Kagune were hunted it became clear that they were no mere beasts. Aside from their carnivorous nature and superior physical capabilities, they were indistinguishable from normal humans. The only way to confirm that a person is a Kagune is through their Kakuhou (赫包, red wrap), an organ that generates K-Cells. These cells harden after leaving the body to form a bodily weapon. Aside from being lightweight, Kakuhou formations are five times harder than steel and sharper than obsidian, often cutting through anything it touches. Though these formations vary (eg projectiles, stingers, tentacles, etc) , they always manifest and are attached to their Kakuhou, which is located along their back.

Kagune are carnivorous by nature and immune most toxic substances, though they can still be harmed by conventional weapons and radiation. Their health largely depends on the species they eat due to the fact that they take on subdued traits associated with their food (e.g. scales from dragon meat, a keener sense of smell from shapeshifters), though none have shown magical proficiency. Eating lesser animals will degrade their physical and mental capabilities while more sapient beings such as humans, naiads, shapeshifters, vampires will keep them healthy. A long as the flesh isn't spoiled (e.g. necrotic or cursed) it is edible, even if it's from a corpse. The ultimate delicacy for Kagune are demigods and Emerged beings, rare as their flesh may be. In the past, Kagune who ate Emerged beings temporarily gained weak versions of the power that their prey held. Without meat or blood, Kagune will starve to death as they cannot digest other substances.
