Trying to structure the lore in a way that it would feed a world I could then build a story off of, I kept coming back to the 'Summons', and the dilemma of how I would adapt them into my story. It only felt natural to make them the gods of this world. It was both challenging and fun to not only build a pantheon of Final Fantasy Gods, but develop lore that would make them work in the traditional sense. 

 

 

 

THE PANTHEON

 

 

In the beginning, there was only Bahamut. Guardian of the cosmos and creator of worlds.


 

Greater Gods

Bahamut created ten Greater Gods that would help shape the features and physics of our game world.

 

Ramuh

Wise, powerful sage and Lord of Time.

 

Alexander

Brave, exalted paladin and Lord of Light.

 

Hades

Shadowy, fiendish sorcerer and Lord of Darkness.

 

Odin

Vicious, mounted general and Lord of War.

 

Palidor

Wild, ferocious bird of prey and Lord of Thunder.

 

Ifrit

Furious, smoldering demon and Lord of Fire.

 

Titan

Towering, mighty cyclops and Lord of Earth.

 

Shiva

Stern, malevolent huntress and Goddess of Ice.

 

Siren

Beautiful, deadly mermaid and Goddess of Water.

 

Sylph

Nimble, furtive nymph and Goddess of Wind.


 

Lesser Gods

Each Greater God created one or more Lesser Gods.

 

Neo Bahamut

Bahamut created Neo Bahamut from the core of a young star.

 

Bahamut ZERO

Bahamut created Bahamut ZERO from a ferocious black hole.

 

Shoat

Ramuh created Shoat from a ripple in the Time Stream.

 

Crusader

Alexander created Crusader from a shard of his sword. 

 

Diablos

Hades created Diablos from the darkness of the underworld.

 

Doomtrain

Hades created Doomtrain from the restless souls of the dead.

 

Gilgamesh

Odin created Gilgamesh from the fiery soul of his horse, Sleipnir, and the essence of the warrior from Gungnir, his sword.

 

Quezicotl

Palidor created Quezicotl from a collision of lighting bolts.

 

Phoenix

Ifrit created Phoenix from a breath of fire.

 

Golem

Titan created Golem from a chunk of rock from the earth.

 

Icen

Shiva created Icen from a lock of her hair.

 

Leviathan

Siren created Leviathan from a stampeding river.

 

Typhoon

Sylph created Typhoon from a raging tornado.


 

Children of The Gods

Five species of humanoids were created to populate and cultivate the planet.

 

Bahamir

First, Bahamut created a special race of warriors. Their vast empire maintained peace and stability for centuries in the First Era.

 

Odinspawn

Odin set forth, creating masses of stock humans all across the world. They were primitive, and drawn to war by their very nature.

 

Time Mage

Ramuh took his time before creating another special race of humans. The Time Mages are powerful and reclusive. They have watched over the world for centuries from the peaks of Mount Ramuh.

 

White Mage

Alexander took pride and care to create the denizens of Whiteguard. Skillful, intelligent healers, oracles and paladins.

 

Black Mage

Ever the astute, cunning God, Hades created Black Mages last. He carefully studied the creation of each species and crafted a blunt force tool he perceived to be superior to the rest. Taller, stronger, and capable of tapping into each of the elements in addition to the forces of the Underworld.


 

Palidor, Ifrit, Shiva, Titan, Siren, and Sylph created the elemental magics and forces, and the vast array of creatures upon the earth.
