One of the original twelve gods dreamed into existence by the titans, Gidd created the human race. But he found his creations troublesome and rebellious, so he cursed them to live a nomadic existence for centuries—a curse the humans overcame only recently.
Gidd’s alliances with the goddess Zuras resulted in many divine children, including the prophetic goddess Mystel and the sinister god Thulsa. Gidd led the gods of Arun into battle during the Divine War, but the goddess Akasha lured him away from the battle, then killed him. After Gidd’s death, the goddess Velik adopted the human race and remains their patron to this day.
