Heroes of Peleandril
There are many religions on Earth, but one mythology. Races may disagree on their place in the hierarchy of the cosmos, but the celestial beings themselves have taught their history to mortals, a series of nesting creation tales that illustrate the power and wisdom of the immortals.
The first Deities are an important part of that mythology, as all Alphas and Devas claim to be creations of the Deities. Most humans still worship these Deities in the ways the immortal beings taught them. Each of these Deities are known to associate closely with two others, forming Trinities that inspire mortals and immortals alike to align with them.

What value do you share most with a Trinity, and why?
