There are two types of known deities in the world, Immortals and Ascendants.
Extremely powerful mortals have sometimes attained immortality and godhood. These ascended beings are known as the Immortals. The Immortals are known to take frequent interest in affairs in the corporeal world.
Ascendants are extremely powerful mortals who seek to ascend to godhood, but have not yet accomplished their goal. Ascendants should be considered extremely dangerous beings and often leave a path of destruction in their wake as they attempt to take what is not theirs by nature.
