Prothonian Pantheon

This pantheon was first worshiped by the humans of ancient, lost Prothonia, far to the west. When the Titans overwhelmed that land, the humans found new homes across the sea in Iath-Hemut. Those who founded Thovalas preserved their ancient ways, including the old gods of Prothonia. Like the Thovalans themselves, this family of gods is dominated by powerful female leaders, including the pantheon's ruler and general.
    Domezia, the ruler of the pantheon, is also the mother of many of them by Panterron (Atonistra, Bellonika, Crolion, and Kanatos). Atonistra and Crolion have three children of their own (Hylacine, Momyx, and Nymea), while Bellonika and Kanatos have only one child (Proteris). The Prothonian Pantheon dwells on the outer plane known as Caelicus (Utopia, LN).
    The Prothonian gods compete for dominance in the mortal world with the Titans (or Elder Titans, to distinguish them from their non-divine descendants). The two groups are not related by blood, but share a single mythology based on their eternal war.
    Every craft and profession has a patron among the Prothonian gods, so each deity's profile includes a "Crafts/Professions" entry identifying which fall into each god's portfolio.
