Tastiarothshyhin, also known as Draguros is one of the four Xhodocto, and the lord of Equilibrium. The most enigmatic of the four Xhodocto, Draguros is known to represent the subset of creation, and is sometimes seen in Xhodocto-based religions as the chief entity of the four Xhodocto, despite his equal status with his counterparts.

History Edit

Historically, little mention of Draguros is made before the events of the War of Ages. A vast majority of recovered historical documentation of the Zhulultu only makes reference of Angazhar, and thus Draguros and the other two Xhodocto may have remained unknown or unmentioned in the ancient history of the First Gigaquadrant. In more modern knowledge, Draguros still remains as the most unknown of the four of the Xhodocto, with his spheres of influence being hidden from the scope of those who follow him. Whilst he represents the creative energies of Chaos Energy, Draguros' role among the four Xhodocto is not an explored area of study. Many have come to assume however, that Draguros' role is concerned with the most minimalistic qualities of reality and in juxtaposition with nothingness - as Chaos Energy's creative subset drives chaos and cosmos into patterns both logical and illogical, Draguros' possibly identity is the personification of both what is and what is not.

The name Tastiarothshyhin, which is attributed to Draguros translates from a long extinct language into the moniker that which sets things apart, which may give some insight into the entity of Draguros being the convergence and divergence of dimensions seen and unforseen. Draguros may also represent dualism in its most core sense, as chaos and cosmos are sometimes defined as non-existence and existence, among other analogies. In the divisive scope, Draguros polarises Santorakh and is paired with Angazhar, whilst in the substantive scope, Draguros is paired with Krathazhrukhal.

It is a possibility that these dualistic attributes of Draguros is a factor in him sometimes being treated as above the other three Xhodocto - whilst the Xhodocto as a singular force represent multiple aspects of existence, the fundamental aspects of the Xhodocto - chaos against order and vice versa - are seen in Draguros as a fundamental prospect. Draguros is not known to destroy nor create, and the more speculative followers of the Xhodocto merely state that Draguros is, rather than what his aspects are (although this may be derived from the mystery surrounding Draguros instead). Draguros has not been treated as the chief deity by the authorities of either the The Congregation or the Dominion of the Xhodocto, who believed that Angazhar and Krathazhrukhal respectively were more fitting of that title. Draguros nevertheless has been held in equal respect, but the core qualities and creed of both factions were not in accordance with Draguros' spheres of influence.

Characteristics Edit

Appearance Edit

Of all the Xhodocto, Draguros is the least referenced in art - in more ancient lines of thought, proper veneration of Draguros was to not portray him at all. As the embodiment of dualism, Draguros has been portrayed in several forms not common to the Xhodocto - sometimes as androgynous deities exhibiting both male and female features, or unusual forms that are simply greater than that of those who surround him. The absence of Draguros in more contemporary art is likely out of a lack of understanding of Draguros - more symbolic art forms have come about as a result. Symbols representing that of the Monad have been attributed to Draguros, as well as even more minimalistic idolatry. Monochromatic colours are often the motif of those who follow Draguros, and it is thought that his eye manifestation is the simple juxtaposition of black upon white, or vice versa.

Personality Edit

Unspoken of in religious text, the persona of Draguros is unknown. Even in more modern instances, the very existence of Draguros a substantial entity has little exploration, and is generally left as more of a conceptual entity than that of one with evidential interaction as with the other three Xhodocto. Draguros is without personality or speech, and even in the recently defined texts surrounding the nature of Draguros, there are no apparent instances of dialogue from him. Those who have claimed to have heard Draguros speak infer that he speaks without a voice.

He is the one who will sing the song that will end all. He is the master who will lead us all to our ends. To oppose him is foolishness, to follow him is merely delaying your end.

There are no words to describe what he is. No solid way to explain his nature. He just...Is.

...However, Hiroghain didn't bless us with sight to simply serve as a voice for the blind. We were given this gift to see; to understand and internalize. The truth of the world opens in front of us and we are to know its meaning, not to simply rush into it.
