|“|| In a place devoid of color, sights, sound, something shuffled its way along the nothingness. A monstrous being, cloaked in darkness came forward; atop its shrouded body, rested the skull of the yet-to-be-created raven. The beak sealed and the bones of the great beast clattered. Down the giant’s back, rose three tall spines. Impaled on each spine, flag-style, hung a face. The first face, the face of the Human, spoke an impossible language, with an incomprehensible dialect. From there, another beast, exactly in its image appeared, then came another, and finally four more. From the second face, the face of the Dekn, more words came, and with them, existence became.
With the third face, the face of the Arkn, existence was opened, and the words spoken created worlds, vast and empty. The beings stood watch over their newly created sandbox. These beings were the First. These beings were the Hethe.
The Hethe are the Supreme Beings. They are the creators of all of Existence.
All that is and ever was is because of The Hethe. The origin of these beings, and next to anything else about them is a mystery. Hardly any beings know of their existence, and the word "Hethe" derives from The Arkn's fanatical worship of supposed "Gods." Despite all races being morally ambiguous, these beings are and will always be of the greatest of all evil. Other than The Fallen One, Ma'lek, no Hethe is known to interact with The Arkn or Dekn, they sit and watch from outside Existence itself.
Their power is so vast that, had they wanted to, they could end the war and wipe out all of existence, however they choose not to. Description wise, Cedric Kharon recounts them to show only a blank, smooth, bird-like skulls with no orifices. They all wear cloaks made of the darkest of darkness, shrouded from light. Bones of unknown origin protrude from holes in the cloaks, and they leak what resembles foul primordial Cluxious from these holes. They had some involvement and interactions with Edgar Kharon, who was later given care of Cedric, the only offspring and descendant of the creatures. Little is known about these things, however, beyond the stuff of legends.
List of Hethe
De'ebo: The Creator, Wears a Top Hat
Cre'vial: The Spectator, Wears a Bowler Hat
Leg'leg: The Bastard, Wears the helmet of a medieval Knight
Zag'orv: The Adventurer, wears a Tricorn hat.
Fab'ras: The Wise, formerly had a cowboy hat, now wears nothing.
Tum'to: The Warmonger, dons a set of Elk-like antlers.
Gar'sha: The Mother, Wears a Hood, with the hood down it dons a Fez.
Ma'lek: The Guilted One, Wears a Flatcap
De'ebo was the first and original Hethe to exist. Whether or not it created the other Hethe is unknown. This Hethe created the Deedrn I-F, and the Dekn.
Cre'vial was the second Hethe to show up. Rather than taking part in De'ebo's creating, Cre'vial sat back and observed, until coming forth to meld together the first Arkn, Gynesis, from existing Dekn.
Leg'leg was the third Hethe to be, and is notably the first to exhibit any sort of evil traits demonstrated by destroying that which De'ebo originally created. As punishment, any idea posed by Leg'leg was up to a group decision of all eight Hethe. In addition to this, Leg'leg was not allowed to create a Deedrn, and instead created the second Arkn, Gilgamesh.
Zag'orv was the fourth Hethe to come forth. While Zag'orv disliked creating, it is said that the Hethe did gain enjoyment from studying and analyzing that which the other's created, gaining the first bit of what would be known as knowledge. Zag'orv created the Deedrn, H-O-W.
Fab'ras was the fifth Hethe to arise, and the only Hethe to actively question existence. The Seeker was always answered, but never satisfied by answers. This is the Hethe that created the Deedrn, W-H-Y.
Tum'to was the sixth Hethe to become, and the angriest. To repose for its anger as a vent, Tum'to helped spark the Arkn and Dekn war, and notably created both the third Arkn, Abaddon, and the Deedrn D-I-E.
Gar'sha was the seventh and almost final Hethe to appear and is known collectively as the Mother, but notably the least powerful. Gar'sha took part in creating the oceans of humanity's realm along with the stars. Alongside this, rather than creating a Deedrn, it created the fourth Arkn, Raziel.
Ma'lek was an unexpected eighth Hethe and the youngest. While Ma'lek loved the creations, it did not seem to get along with the other Hethe, especially Leg'leg. Ma'lek did not create a Deedrn however, and opted in to create something different instead.
