Many different gods are worshipped in Wraeclast. This page is a list of all the different deities mentioned in the game, sorted by culture, as well as an explanation on the nature of godhood itself.
Ascension to godhood
In a time before the creation of the Beast by Sin, any human had the capability of ascending to godhood. Driven by ambition, abetted by the "adoration of their people", a mortal could rise to prominence and transcend, casting away their mortality to become an immortal god.
According to Sin, becoming a god often comes at the cost of one's own humanity.
Innocence is the god of the Order of the Templar in Oriath. Although worshipped as a god of light and purity, discoveries from supposed heretics like Lycia indicate a darker truth of his origin and rise to power. After his reincarnation through Bannon and the fall of Oriath, he travelled to the seas of the far south in self-exile.
Sin is Innocence's brother, and the creator of the Beast. He is portrayed as the Thief of Virtue, though he played an important role in preserving humanity during the invasion of Kitava and the return of the Pantheon to Wraeclast.
