Aster, also known as the High Father, is the first of the Ontautt and is the central pillar of Uatti, the de-facto religion of most Omneuttians. He holds the domains of Creation, and Life, and those who seek his blessing usually do so for clarity in meaningful life choices. Along with Porrair and Taruthe, he is one of four Ontautt who is worshipped in some way nearly everywhere in Omneutta, with the fourth being the parental Deity of the local Sentient Species. It is debated whether his appearance was because of the creation of The Known Universe or vice versa, but it is generally agreed that they coincided, after which he created the other Deities.

Worship

Temples

In most areas of Omneutta, capitols of continents, planet-stars, and star-planets. contain a temple to Aster. Additionally, large cities usually have representations of multiple if not all of the Deities and Aster is often the most prominently displayed.

Whispers

A series of one and two-sentence missives to the other Deities, Aster’s Whispers are often recited or read in many forms of worship by followers of Ontautt. In response to each directive being species-ist due to their origins directed at specific Deities, diverse Uatti followings do not restrict each missive to members of each species.

Artifacts

Aster is the only Deity not to have any artifacts solely attributed to him.

View of Sentient Species

Aster’s view of Sentient Species is usually positive, and he is regarded as one of the most favorable deities to the Sentient Species. Because of this, worship that includes multiple deities almost always involves his worship as well, with some denominations even going so far as to worship only Aster. His involvement with the Sentient Species is mostly one of laissez faire, allowing things to happen without intervention. He is aware that the other seven deities occasionally intervene, but tries to keep himself impartial in the affairs of the mortal world- only asking the other deities occasionally to stop their actions.

Appearances/References

With his hands-off approach, Aster is likely the only Deity to never have been spotted among the ranks of mortals since the Time Reset. This is highlighted by Aster not having made a mortal species in his image, though being the father of the universe, it is likely that Aster could change his form into that of one of the Sentient Species.
