"OTSA! OTSA! LORD OF EARTH! LEADER OF LIGHT! FORGIVE OUR FLAWS AND ALLOW OUR LIVES!"
"The children of OTSA are many but not enough. For he gazed upon the lush fields of spring, and desired it, as he did see the great mountain of HIS FINGER, as he did the princess of Rows. OTSA heart belongs to beauty and it will chase it where it resides"
"His shoulders could not be weighed down. His legs could not know tiredness, he held not back his divinity. A mockery of the best of my warriors he made. It was then I started making them stomp about and to mimic his posture. Stand before death with the unwaveringness of diamond, of rubies and shine, SHINE! As he does at all times." - unknown chieftain, cuneiform tablet.
Two legs, two arms, one head, that's where OSTA likeness ends with humanity. The rest of him is made of diamond and everything about him is nothing short of perfect shapes, a collection of abstract ideals that formulate a total whole, as if some art student begun a sketching the base for a person but realized that nothing could surprass the seemingly perfect circles, triangles and squares, so left it forever unfinished. A circle makes OTSA head, a triangle makes his body with another for his waist, rectangles make his arms and legs.
When in darkness OTSA appears as still shinning jewels although his features become totally inanimate and mundane with exception to the internal light. When in light a swirling mixture of prismatic rays will bend, curve and formulate and then shift into many different beautiful faces of men, women and even animals over time. When OTSA wishes to interact with something he can formulate prismatic rays out of the stubs of his wrists that act as fingers.
He refuses to wear clothes under any circumstance although may try the odd smaller trinket or item if it is exceptionally beautiful.
Naïve and unaware of the human world. In OTSA day he was a perfect being among a nearly empty world and so has almost no concept of any human problems or complications. He has no understanding of rule of law, only consequence, he has no concept of rights, only dignity. He is the naked jungle dweller of the gods. Unrestrained, uninterested in contradictions and other's concerns but unlike that man he is a god, there go perfect, he knows what it is to be ideal and have an ideal life on earth. He knows not hunger, not pain, not sickness and so he never had to compromise to avoid or account for these things. Should he want it, that is good enough and his only master is himself.
He finds himself at odds with human self restrictive ideas and notions. But, despite this, OTSA is in touch with his heart and knows of love and compassion. He has a soft spot for humans and will typically help them, especially in exchange for adoration or praise. He has absolutely no sense of self doubt and when presented with his failing he will not assign to himself a flaw but instead change his expectations. In this respect he can be conceited and unwavering, not willing to give up ground, even for a simple compromise but he is also strong in his boundaries and nearly impossible to scare or bully into doing something he dosen't want to.
OSA is, however, remarkably shallow, he desire the world to be as beautiful as him and respects those who try to make it so. He is dismissive and uninterested in those that don't even try to look their best for him and should something be truly awe making he will attempt to engage in mating with it.
Diamonds and Mysticism.
FATIGUE: OTSA old power still resides in him somewhat. He can fatigue a single target, making them tired, out of breath and winded for a short while-roughly 30 minutes- but may only do this one a day.
VISIONS: He can strike any who displease him with visions, abrupt, jarring sights that last for a night and day or earlier, if he decides. These visions are typically unpleasent and give a great sense of judgement and supernatural dread and anxiety. This vision do not blind the target, they still remain capable of normal activity.
WARD: OTSA can brand anyone with strange cave like images providing protective magics from certain things. He can only provide a ward on a person or a area-which affects 30 feet or a home its in- the wards always have to be something specific. While weak the wards will decrease, turn away or even seem to induce minor physical affects to those that trespass them.
For beasts and mindless things: his ward will make them avoid them if stated in said ward. Such as snakes slithering away at the sight of the warded person for a ward of snakes.
For more intangible things such as sickness or poisons: the symptoms will delayed and lessened considerably. Something would be act in effect immediately would take several minutes to slowly kick in. The ward must specify what vague type of sickness or posion - skin related-
For intents and abstracts: If someone were to enter a ward with intent to harm they will seem to breathe louder, as if panicking, alerting vigil lookouts. If it against being conned or lied to-in either specific case- the liar might seem to suffer with odd heat, sweatiness or thirst.
Wards don't stack. They can also only be applied to one thing for each ward-so you can't tattoo loads of wards onto a guy but you could put on his necklace and him-
FATHER OF MANY THINGS: OTSA can communicate with any jewel, butterflies and the occasional rare beast which has an unnatural wonder to their appearance or attitude. As he in many case is directly their father via mating with physical things-such as mountains- or their ancestors. All of these things feel a easy kinship with him and more relaxed.
This goes true for humans who seem to have a undying "light in their eyes" if they have a unusual sense of constant "spark", as well as physical attractiveness although such descendants of his human wife would be very rare.
GREATER POWERS (closer to or at old godhood)
Mysticism is the precursor to magic.
The domain over mysticism allows OTSA to implement the fulfilment of an effect should someone attempt to utilize non-standard world logic and appeasement to get it. To put it simply, invocations, chants, rituals, dance, trances, even self drugging. So long as the effects are not inherently manifest nor obvious and follow some semblance of logic and preparation he can cast a spell. This dosen't mean he can shoot fire balls nor heal someone.
The enigmatic maybe is what MYSTICSM entails. Its the bit of you that says..."oh. I put a coin in that wishing well and I found five bucks...hmmm...oddly lucky...could it be?" although his power can go slightly further depending that such a request not enter the realm of absurdity - He can...for example make a drugged up shaman have strength of a lion when wearing a lion pelt and playing one-
OTHERNESS: When nearer to his true godhood OTSA can perceive and interact with the magical. He can see spirits of the world, demons, celestials or whatever else might be there. He has no inherent sway over these forces although his divinity is respected. This allows him to communicate and potentially barter with them for certain favours if he so desired. He may even enter magical or hidden spiritual areas.
The Old father: at closer to his godhood OTSA can call forth some of his more magical, dormant or banished children to his side. These include the old golems who were born from the earth. The unicorns and the crystal stags. There are only so many left and he will have to find where they have been driven to. But he has a innate sense of how close he is to his grand children.
The common story is that nomadic man found a diamond via happenstance and in its opulence he believed that more beautiful things could exist in this world and from that the diamond hatched and OTSA was born.
Being in existence back before man even had proper speech he was painted and beckoned regularly as a being of ideals. He represented pure fancy, a world without suffering, a magical force that exceeded the issues that plagued all alive. His role was many, from granting wards of safety, to providing magical means to things and wisdom. He was a helper of man but only those that attempted to be at their best and most luxurious for him.
Many stories mark his life. It is said that he could provide the road to godhood. The story goes:
"OTSA granted mans request. He stood at dawn with his back to the sun, through his chest a rainbow formed the as the light hit him. But many failed. For no man was quick enough to reach past the clouds before the sun rose out of proper angle and dispelled the prismatic road. Falling to their deaths"
Note: many failed. Not all. But it could just be a myth. It is stated that OTSA eventually ceased this, with nothing but "Mortality has been bared from the upper spheres now and forever"
OTSA also fought many horrific beast and magical menaces that threatened humanity as he regarded them well. He also struck humanity done when offended, although rarely.
OTSA death is recorded in many ways. On old bones via runes, symbols, crude drawing in caves and still preserved cuneiform. One story states that he died because he fell in love with a beautiful deer and was later offered it head as tribute and killed himself out of despair. Others state that a king desiring his head as a gift to his love interest sent his armies to slay him and tricked him somehow. Some even say that OTSA was killed by a monster that ended in both defeat.
These myths are known only be a few intellectual circles interested in such exotic and old theological trinkets. Most of what is known is scrounged up by broken, faded and oddly preserved artefacts found through happenstance or absurd luck.
Only OTSA knows the truth of his many fables.
Here you go, kindred, Excuse if the dude seems too close to "god of magic" but I really wanted to go for a,motherfucking, cave man shaman vision sort of deal.
