And He said to Haket: Learn from the successes and mistakes of those who have lived full lives and guard against unwelcome futures.

Aster, Whispers

Haket has domain over departed souls, the responsibility of transmitting knowledge from the departed to the living, and conveying wishes of the living to the departed. He also has control over light itself, creatures of flight, and is known as the Winged One.

Worship

Worship is less centralized for devotees of Haket and is more of a philosophy that relates to determinism when the future can be known. At least three times throughout the year, those who worship the Winged One are expected to make pilgrimage to a gate when Haket’s portion of Astran faces certain directions relative to Vale Reef.

Gates

Not much is currently known outside Vale Reef about the gates to those who are not kets, though we would like to learn more.

Artifacts

Haket’s Staff of Divergence has many uses, the chief of which is purported by the Kettlah to be able to rearrange Omneutta temporarily to align the gates, in accordance with Kettlah philosophy.

View of Sentient Species

Haket’s view of Sentient Species are quite similar to Aster’s in the ends, but quite different in the means. While Aster and Haket both view the Sentient Species as positive overall, Haket less favourable to the Sentient Species’ agency as a whole.
Haket was quite pleased with the extraordinarily long lifespans of his Sentient Species (the Kettlah) in particular, with the assumption that they would aid his process of communication between the living and the dead (of all species, not just the Sentient ones). According to the Ontiba Section 3, the reason for the Kettlah’s lack of outright flight is due to his displeasure regarding their assistance or lack thereof. There are numerous rumors of statues to Haket appearing throughout major city-centres across Omneutta and disappearing, presumably being Haket in disguise.
