Among some gods, when drunk on ambrosia and awake to the fundamental truths of Creation, a certain thought arises: What if we are not the rulers of Creation? For it is true that the gods treat mortals as playthings. Even those gods bound by the Immaculate Philosophy are still capable of working their will on and through the shaping of mortal lives. No mortal can resist a god’s will, or even claim to resist an Exalt’s commanding presence. Truly, Creation must belong by right to those who can work Charms and shape destiny as a potter shapes clay.
