Ahn, A Shattered World
Gi is the closest to an overgod in the Shard pantheon. Gi was the first True Born to be shaped from the Light of Creation. This gave him a physical form in the ethereal plane of Creation and also established the first language, Te. This new presence which was not a Shadow was completely alien to the Shaper people. As he grew and aged, another strange concept for a Shaper, he grew more powerful. He was able to speak to Shadows and break them of their half-existence. In doing so, he unwittingly created the first Shard. In fear and rage, they lashed out at Gi‘s mother, another Shaper, who gained the name Ihi when she spoke it in Te. It was the only word she had been able to learn from Gi. Upon discovering Ihi’s body, Gi spoke the Unspoken into existence and used it to bring about The Shattering. After Creation had been emptied of everything but him and Ihi’s body, he closed the gates with the Whisper and cursed the whole of the Shaper race with Shardshame. No one knows what happened after that, as the gates cast a shadow over Ahn, hiding Creation and the Light of Creation from view.
