Cyela, Goddess of Heaven



Legend
Cyela lives in heaven, which lies above Aphelion but below the realm of the gods.
She is as old as the universe itself and has tasked herself with the managing of mortal souls.
To help her with this, Cyela created the "WInged Ones" in her own image. These warriors of the light protect the realm and oversee the souls of Heaven.
Cyela is a kind god, looking upon the mortals with charity and love, and believes a soul can be saved no matter how evil. Though, she is willing to cast terrible punishment upon those who've gone too far.

Myths and Traditions
Cyela is maybe the most known deity of Aphelion. She's guaranteed a church in nearly every town except the far rural ones.
Most pray to her for a good life or when consumed by grief, stress, or as a form of meditation.
She has a very large cult following with an entire order devoted to her word. At the top is the Arch Bishop which hears the words of the goddess and grants orders accordingly. The Arch bishop's advisors and staff are also included . Then there are the lesser church orders whith Priests, Bishops, Monks, and Nuns.
The Orbs she uses allows her to watch over Aphelion.

Emblem
Cyela's emblem is a golden star, representing the 5 virtues which are: Truth, Charity, Life, Loyalty, and Honor.

Mikail, The God of Hell


Legend
When Heaven and Hell was created, they were said to be each other's complete and opposite reflection.
Opposite to Heaven, Hell was created as a torturous place where all evil doers are thrown upon Judgement of their sins.
Mikail, the God of hell, is said to be the strictest of the Gods. He is harsh in his judgements and believes that everyone deserves Hell whether the sin be small or great.
He has made 7 levels of Hell, where he throws the gravest of sinners at the bottom of the burning pits and the level of punishments get less severe as the levels rise.

Myths and Traditions
The God of Hell is always mentioned with the Goddess of Heaven, in an unbreakable duo. They say no judgement on a soul is passed unless both the God of Hell and Goddess of Heaven are there and in agreement whether the soul is blessed with Paradise or banished into Hell.

Mikail is one of the most Unpopular Gods whereby believers always draw a star whenever he is mentioned, seeking protection under Cyela from his judgement.

Emblem
His symbol is the trident.

D'arphilon, God of Death

(What his appearance is normally)

(The clothes he normally wears. The ones in the other image are in other words his battle clothes)
Legend
D'arphilon came into existance around the same time as Khayyath, goddess of life. It was said the two were twins, but that is not correct. They came into being around the same time to balance one another. It is said that Khayyath came about from the breaths of living things, and D'arphilon from the rotting stench of those that decayed, though none of the Great Gods know how they really came about. D'arphilon had a twin brother, but killed him for no reason. It was for this D'arphilon was completely given the charge of looking after death itself--for repenting after killing his twin brother. He still does not regret it to this day. It is said that D'arphilon now lives where he pleases, even in the realm of the gods, even though he is strongly shunned there, and has a happy, maniacal personality that can switch from perkily happy to dangerously dark, which affects how those who are about to die suffer until the very end or pass peacefully. It is also said the shade of his wings (from white to light/dark grey to black) indicate how painful a death he will give to those in the future. It was said his mother is the Goddess of the Moon, who disappeared after the birth of the twins.
Myths and Traditions
It is said that D'arphilon is worshipped in secret, for those caught worshipping the Death God are either sent to prison for life or executed for bringing about terrible luck for the state or country. On the contrary, rumors have spread that in times of great war, kings and emperors prayed to D'arphilon for death and destruction to fall down on their enemies. D'arphilon does not personally deal with destruction, but he is prayed to for it after being confused with his twin brother, once the God of Destruction. D'arphilon also is not in control of the Underworld, though many believe he is, and had left that job to his brother whom he supposedly ressurected and controls him now. Those once religious but have turned to the religion of death are believed to carry his symbol around and chant a prayer of death for their enemies--these people were killed off as soon as they were found, but few still are around. Cults and other dark groups pray to him while holding ceremonies of sacrifice on occasion. It is believed that if a group persistently prays for him, D'arphilon will appear and touch those who you want dead with his hand and they will die. His touch alone can kill anything, but he prefers the sword he either carries on his hip or his back to slay those he personally seeks. It is also strongly believed great, terrible villains worshipped him in order for him to bring down the kingdom they want to conquer. There are even few people who pray to D'arphilon after one's passing for them to come back reincarnated as another human, so they may meet again.
Emblem
A slitted moon looming over a tombstone with withered flower (particularly rose) petals falling atop the stone. It is believed the moon represents his disappearing mother and therefore parenthood; the rock on the ground represents mortals trapped on the earthen surface until they died and became part of the earth again, and the falling dead petals either grief for a loved one or (very rarely) that death could resurface life in due time.
