- Parent: Second Born Spirits
It is said that Thanatos once served as the apprentice to Oran, the Lord of Death. In his pursuit of knowledge about death's cause he stole the Great Lore from Io. He imagined that he could become more powerful than The Named One and thus began the Insurrection War. Thanatos brought such war and destruction to the world of Ilya that mortals began to fear and believe in him as supreme. He gained the status of a Greater Power over darkness and entropy. With this new found power he set in motion his ultimate plan for the final destruction of creation. At what seemed to be his moment of triumph, with the world being drawn into the Black Void, the First of the Seven, Caliel, cast Thanatos into the void, imprisoning him in chains of darkness. The Emperors of Cyra, or Thordex as it is known in the west, claim lineage to Thanatos and there are many in that land that await his reawakening. As a Greater Power within the Void, Thanatos can grant his priests up to 9th level spells within ten miles of an active Void Portal. As a Second Born power, Thanatos can only grant non-domain spells of up to 3rd level to his followers (domain spells are limited by Power status).
