kavkem mythology is fairly Threadwielder-centric. It's the result of Evenatra and Ysikary having revealed themselves both to the Nayabaru and the kavkema very early on, and tried to teach them about Threadwielders and the nature of the universe. Of course, of the two, Ysikary later withdrew, an action correlated to that the Nayabaru culture became more secular over time.
There are several regional flavours of kavkem mythology that can be distinguished from each other.
The kavkem mythological pantheon, the basic dynamics between the deities and the origin story of the world is known as the baseline faith Taaravahr.
|Garukaron||The god of time; the Ur-deity.||Madjan|
|Maenona||The goddess of the celestial objects of the night (distant stars, planets).||Zalaagra|
|Tkanetar|| The god of light and fire; also the master of mammals.|
Considered by many flavours of the mythology to be the creator of Terenyira and the Nayabaru.
|Vasharesh1)||A fallen deity / demi-god.||Valcen|
|Tamas̈elu||The goddess of qanu (life worth living), fertility and peace||Evenatra|
Ysikary has been entirely forgotten by the modern pantheon.
There are other, recurring demigods or minor deities in the kavkem pantheon:
