And He said to Extiru: Be ready to fight when called upon, take care not to dwell too far from others.

Aster, Whispers

Extiru, who is also called The Blade Lord, is the second Ontautt and generally seen as the opposite to Aster. Extiru lords over the domains of Destruction and War, which is why he is regarded as presiding over strength in battles, whether physical confrontation, long military campaigns or thought of as giving strength to pirate groups. According to the Ontiba Extiru was hastily created by Aster to clean up his mistakes, rather than the latter learning from them.

Worship

There is nothing too large for Extiru to destroy, and this is a frequent request of worship. Extiru has destroyed everything from the smallest creature to the largest star-planet (including Astran, if the Rux is to be believed). He is also regarded as presiding over strength in battles, whether physical confrontation, or long military campaigns. Though he is often regarded as the least intelligent and sensible of the Eight, he is usually attributed prowess in conducting large-scale and long-term military campaigns—especially by shani remnants and reigns.

Crater Stones

Long ago before the physics of Omneutta were entirely understood, many religions theorized that the rare crater-leaving-meteors were shows of Extiru’s power. This theory has since faded, but stones standing by themselves—especially large ones—in a depression are often used to pay tribute or respect to the Deity.

Artifacts

Two of the most powerful artifacts in Omneutta, the Suit of the Onslaught and his Warlord’s Axes are Extiru’s personal tools of destruction. Depicted often as one large dual-sided axe, the Axes actually separate into a small axe and a large scythe with a spear-point on the other end. Likely hyperbole, the metal teeth at the core of the Suit of the Onslaught are said to be used to devour celestial bodies.

View of Sentient Species

The creation of his own Sentient Species was borne from his own self loathing and jealousy of the other Deities who had Sentient Species. His view of the other six Sentient Species stems from this and is different from most of the other Deities. Originally, Extiru attempted to use the Sentient Species – more than just his own Xiruen—as means to his own ends in reshaping Omneutta as he saw fit. By the Timekeeping Reset these practices became outlawed among the Deities, and it is unknown if he continues them in modernity.
