You see... one of the basic premises of that reality is that I am its monotheist, I wove that condition into the world. The only other gods it can have will rise up within. Gods may channel energy in but not enter without being trapped, so their cults can work but not be viewed or checked on. I created the world as a Singularity to draw in a ton of people all who exist in my manse and thus de facto represent and channel power to me... as it cannot get to their god Their God will either abandon them allowing me to take their place fully on my microreality, or else grant them prayers for me.. while I gain the benefit of their worship. Increasing my might. Either way I get stronger. Either way I win
~ Tirlerion to Farpoint


Tirlerion, previously known as the Man in Black is the Caelestian Intermediate Power of Forbidden Magic and the only known Intermediate Power within the AE storyline. Among all of the Caelestian deities, his role in the Lorian Pantheon is among the most mysterious and obscure. Tirlerion's goal is to establish a world where he is praised as the one and only god and he intends to do so by bringing all things within Terra into the World Pool and to seal all of creation from the rest of Caelestia.
