Eidolon

Eidolons are celestial beings from which all other celestial beings were formed. The Eternals designed eidolons as “blanks” to create the original angels and other beings to maintain the order of Elohim. Few eidolons exist, but those who do serve higher powers against existential threats to Creation.

Eidolons were created from the pure Essence found in the Essence Core. The Eternals used them to create the original angels, cogsmic, and evolutionaries at the beginning of Creation and the eidomon later on. These races are capable of reproducing without new eidolons. They did not birth the Titans or the Colossals, but the Titans used eidolons to create the first Paragon gods.

Faebles are the result of Oberon experimenting with captured eidolons.

Now without purpose, some eidolons became lost, aimlessly wandering the Knowing or the Spirit Plane. There they could become confused by the beliefs of mortals, becoming tulpa with the memories and personalities of the figures whose mythology they had stolen.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness within the same range as if it were dim light. Absent even dim light, this vision is monochromatic.

Deific Attunement. You can meditate to cast augury as a ritual, gaining a sense of what your planned actions mean in terms of how your deity wants you to act rather than whether they endanger or benefit you personally. Starting at 7th level, you can cast divination as a ritual in the same way, once per day, with the same limitation. These versions of these spells never give random results and require no material components for you. Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for them.

Eidolon Knowledge. You have proficiency in the Arcana and Religion skills.

Eidolon Senses. You have proficiency in the Insight and Perception skills. Also, you can cast detect magic and detect evil and good. You can cast detect magic any time as a ritual, and you regain the ability to cast both spells when you finish a short or long rest. Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for them.

Heritage (Celestial). You are humanoid, but you are considered to be a celestial whenever it is detrimental for you.

Languages. You speak, read, and write Common and Celestial, though if you have been called to a realm or region by divine guidance you would also speak, read, and write the languages of that location.
