Many say that the god king was so disappointed in his children that he disappeared from the world for thousands of years. After the humans rose up from the depths and walked upon the surface once more, Mathias reappeared in an effort to guide his lost children back into prosperity.
With Tellest’s lands so greatly in the favor of the elves and the dwarves, Mathias created the other major races, like the orcs, the minotaurs and the kobolds. Knowing that they would be adverse to working together, he gave them common foes in the goblins, gnolls and lagano.
Over time Mathias is said to have taken consorts with various mortals upon the face of Tellest. It is unknown whether or not he has sired anyone with these companions.
Mathias has a great many abilities. He is known foremost to be able to change his size and appearance, as well as his voice. Those who have claimed to see him have also spoke of countless other powers that the king of the gods is capable of.
