Of Creation and the Greater Spirits by Enasilaor, the Keeper of History for the Aleamitore House of First Elves, excerpt…
Calledrym was the fourth immortal to have emerged from the Ether when the world was first made. He looked down upon the world and marvelled at what Teysura had done. He smiled at the Mother and said, “I shall encircle your world and cool her days with my breath and wash her with my tears. The clouds shall be my embrace, the thunder my voice and the lightening shall be my wrath.”
Whether Calledrym said those words upon first seeing the world, we shall never know. However, we do know that he claimed dominion overthe skies when the Great Mother, Teysura, brought the land into being. He is the most powerful god in the Ether, and, as such, receives homage from all of the Immortals. In the ethereal relm the will of Calledrym is second to none.
Calledrym is the god of the sky, and he perceives all that happens upon Esteparon. He sits in judgement upon us all. It is said that the priests and priestesses of Calledrym often hear the voice of Calledrym upon the wind. The voice, soft as a whisper, will deliver the god’s edicts and proclamations to his followers. Only the devout shall hear his voice. The unworthy will hear only the wind but his judgment shall bind all.
When the gods first took to war upon Esteparon, before the birth of the mortals, it was Calledrym that led the armies of good against Kiravor and his blackened heart. When Kiravor was finally cast down, it was Calledrym that other gods heralded as their king. While many of the gods continue to swear their allegiance to him, their priests see Calledrym as a tyrant who rules the other gods by force rather than will.
