DAUOIN - THE GOD OF PROTECTION
Natural Mana Types
Enhancement & Earth
Dauoin had been chosen by the Birthless due to qualities that they had observed him portraying, and he followed that nature in vowing to help them in any way he could. The Birthless performed a pact with him, granting him the simple duty of protecting all Mortals and Birthless from danger. It was on this day that the Birthless realized that a mortal could become a God and Dauoin was forever called: the God of Protection.

“Through my flesh, you will learn… and you will grow… take it and with it my mission to protect all mortals of Cavus with you.”
Dauoin is a god that has a lot of conjecture around his being. If you ask the followers of Elise, and her son Fain, they will tell you that Dauoin is a broken god, a deceiver, an evil god bent on removing free will from all things. It is for these reasons that he had to be destroyed, and why there are no other gods outside of Elise and her son Fain in the modern-day.
If you ask, a cultist of the Vagary, or a Follower of Kurose the God eater, they will tell you that Dauoin is the beginning of the end, and he paved the way for true safety and salvation through evolution, and reinvention.
If you ask, a Priest of Carra, or Bask, or Aspel, they will tell you that Dauoin is a fallen savior, that embodies humanity. A God that lost his way due to this humanity, embodying what it means to make great sacrifices with no guarantee of success. He is the soul of all mortal existence as, without him, there wouldn’t be any.
From the cries of mortals who suffered a terrible fate, after terrible fate with no gods protection, a hero arose. The God of Protection, tasked with protecting Mortals from anything that might threaten them. He started as a simple man who wanted to do good. In the beginning, he was successful in his dream. As the mortals grew in number, he grew overwhelmed and succumbed to doing whatever it took for the greater good of mortals. With such a goal, he became a broken god and the first to be devoured by the God Eater Kurose after being permanently crippled in the Abyss by his sister Elise. His spirit refuses to leave, the Abyss, and all things within the Abyss take the form of his Vagary, mana born from the place of power within his own heart.
