xiii is a very old god, who at present cannot remember the first name Ey ever bore. One of Eir names is Aelphaba, and another is Terres. xiii represents one of Eir prominent roles in the Cycle, the thirteenth card of the Major Arcana, Death. Ey is a reincarnating god, taking different roles and different forms in each life, retaining the same divine soul. [Notes 1]
xiii has many forms. In most, Ey bears horns, either cervine or bovine. Ey is often holding a staff. Eir skin, while in humanoid forms, is usually green. When not in humanoid form, Ey is likely in otter, bull, corvid or panther form, all of which also bear horns.

The Three Siblings Edit

The eldest, the creator of the planets Terra embodies. The Crone, goddess of beginnings and endings. Ey creates and destroys the planets when it was time.
The middle sibling, the embodiment of the planets Terres creates. She falls into the role of the Mother.

xiii has no desire to be worshipped.
