Certain of the Children of the Gods have, in the ages since the beginning of time, become so perfected and powerful that they have ascended into the eternal halls of their parents and even have their own followers and those who worship them among the mortal children of Arat’. These are referred to as The Ascended.
Heroes and Tyrants
Most of the ascended rose to godhood by having the power of those who worshiped them for their epic feats added to the existing power of their souls or were given a portion of the power of an existing god, or possibly both. Those ascended to the heavenly halls by the power of worshipers acquired while they were in the flesh are referred to as either heroes or tyrants. Here is a discussion of some of them.
