The greek goddess of the earth. She was one of the primoridal elemental deities (protogenoi) born at the dawn of creation. Gaia was the great mother of all creation–the heavenly gods were descended from her through her union with Ouranos (Uranus) (Sky), the sea-gods from her union with Pontos (Sea), the Gigantes (Giants) from her mating with Tartaros (the Pit), and mortal creatures born directly from her earthy flesh.
Nyx was the goddess of the night, one of the primordial gods (protogenoi) who emerged as the dawn of creation. She was a child of Khaos, and with Erebos she produced Aither and Hemera. She is depicted as the very essence of the night, veiled mist and stars.
As for the United States, we did not call it ‘the World’ for nothing; it might as well have been on another planet. There was nothing familiar out where we were, no churches, no police, no laws, no newspapers, or any of t he restraining influences without which the earth’s population of virtuous people would by reduced by ninety-five percent. It was the dawn of creation in the Indochina bush, an ethical as well as a geographical wilderness. Out there, lacking restraints, sanctioned to kill, confronted by a hostile country and a relentless enemy, we sank into a brutish state. The descent could be checked only by the net of a man’s inner moral values, the attribute that is called character…
Most American soldiers in Vietnam - at least the ones I knew - could not be divided into good men and bad. Each possessed roughly equal measures of both qualities. I saw men who behaved with great compassion toward the Vietnamese one day and then burned down a village the next. They were, as Kipling wrote of his Tommy Atkins, neither saints 'nor blackguards too/But single men in barricks more remarkable like you.’ That may be why Americans reacted with such horror to the disclosures of US atrocities while ignoring those of the other side: the American soldier was a reflection of themselves.
We're bringing Illidan back for a redemption arc!
Oh, yay! He can reevaluate his past decisions and make a vow to be a better person while still fighting with every ounce of his being to defend Azeroth from the Legion. We'll get to see him grow as a person and prove that it's never too late to try to make amends!
He was predestined to be the Chosen Hero of the Light since the dawn of creation.
Also his golden eyes are a sign of his special status.
But what about the irony of his special eyes being the reason he felt entitled to a perfect life, and how the pursuit of that kind of power led to his eyes being seared out by Sargeras? Only to find out years later that golden eyes are actually a sign of great potential as a druid, if only he had had the patience and dedication to follow that path?
Chosen one. Desssssstiny.
How can a redemption mean anything if the character doesn't learn from his mistakes and make a conscious decision to be a better person?
The naaru just love him to pieces.
There's a naaru right outside the Black Temple when you go there to do the level 70 raid. They were fine with curbstomping him then.
Do you want Illidan back or not?
Then take your Destined Champion of the Cosmos and like it.
chronoswas the primordial god of time. In the Orphic cosmogony he emerged self-formed at the dawn of creation. Khronos was envisaged as an incorporeal god, serpentine in form, with three heads–that of a man, a bull, and a lion.
GAIA (or Gaea) was the Protogenos (primeval divinity) of earth, one of the primal elements who first emerged at the dawn of creation, along with air, sea and sky. She herself supported the sea and moutains upon her breast. Gaia was depicted as a buxom, matronly woman, half risen from the earth in Greek vase painting. She was portrayed as inseperable from her native element. In mosaic art, Gaia appears as a full-figured, reclining woman, often clothed in green, and sometimes accompanied by grain spirits–the Karpoi.

Castiel expects this will burn him from the inside out.
A flash of light. A throbbing, brimful feeling. A spreading, yawning depth that reaches beyond Castiel’s understanding.
Lucifer’s grace is magnificent.
It’s corrupt – bone-yellow instead of blue-white, threaded with malice and deceit, hardened by resentments that stretch back to the dawn of creation. But it pulses with strength and vitality and intent, glitters with the sheer celestial perfection it once possessed. Michael might have been God’s strongest, his most dutiful, but Lucifer had been his favorite. Lucifer had been created to reflect all of heaven’s glory and radiance and might.
Surueh the Godess of Twilight, Destruction and the End(?). (Doesn’t sound as badass I would want but eh). Agender, like all the divinity, go with She/They. One of the first god to appear with Oboeh, the Godess of Dawn, Creation and the Beginning. She’s nice, dead inside and have a lot of knowledge. Probably the most powerful divnity of the story.
