Some of the deities one encounters in the Seven Worlds originated from another universe entirely.

He is an antigod or an Other (an intruder upon the plane of the Seven Worlds), depending upon how you look at him. His tentacles are made of antimatter. His army consists of cultists and small vermin called Gnashers and Slashers, the latter of whom can only exist under cover of his unnatural darkness. Symbolized by a ring with a star at its edge, an eclipse.
