Creation

main article: Main Article: Ontiba 1:2

Sham’ayn was inadvertently created by Aster when he felt that one more deity was needed. However, instead of creating one more deity, Aster created both Sham’ayn and Taruthe.

Powers

Sham’ayn is the curator of all loose magiks in Omneutta. During her early years as an Ontautt, she was somehow able to access these powers, which were then restricted by Aster. This restriction is that she is unable to lift any curse she places. Loose magiks enable her to access any powers not given to other Deities for sole use. She is able to teleport, distort forms of life, manipulate time, and more.

Artifacts

Sham’ayn is sometimes depicted with a staff, though this is rare in comparison to the times in which she is depicted channeling loose magiks from her hands. Symbology may be more important in channeling Sham’ayn’s magiks than other Deities, since the magiks are not directly hers to control, and therefore not held in any artifacts. However, there have been a few artifacts attributed to her over time, believed to be sources of some of the magiks that she found.

View of Sentient Species

Sham’ayn has developed a bit of an appreciation for the Sentient Species and unlike some of the other Deities, believes that they should have full control over their own lives. However, she resents what her species, the Sha’an, have become- a continually dysfunctional society whose power is constantly changing hands. She harbours this resentment not against any other deity or a Sentient Species not her own, simply the fact that they cannot coalesce into a society like each other Sentient Species has done.

Appearances/References

Unlike Deities such as Aster or Quarrnyl, Sham’ayn is known to frequently interfere in the lives of mortals. Unlike the other Deities, she has no desire to make large-scale changes, and is believed to be a bearer of bad omens and luck to Sentient Species other than the Sha’an.
