Eywaat is a playful god worshiped by a serious people. A less ambitious deity he tends to helps floundering people groups in inhospitable lands. He sees all his worshippers as his "nestlings" and commonly manifests in signs and dreams.



Eywaat is often the patron god of inventors, and desert dwelling Chaktawe and is an important deity among inventors and all who love birds. He inspires ingenuity and is the proverbial prince of all birds. However, he has a special affinity for black feathered birds. To the Chaktawe he is worshipped as primarily the god of crows and ravens.

It is thought that Eywaat was an idle god pleased with making games and inventions before the world came into being. He flew amongst the divine in the shape of a large black feathered creature with wings and was often consulted for a pithy word or asked to create an amusement.

When Mizahar was formed, though, Eywaat saw a purpose for all his creative energy. It is rumored that Caiyha is his mother and bestowed on him lordship over a class of animals that would resemble his favored shape. The first bird flocks were crafted from his black feathers and Caiyha's blessing. Eywaat breathed over the feathers, teaching them flight and giving them life. The birds he formed retained kernels of his personality in their curiosity and tenacity.


Eywaat commonly manifests himself in the unassuming form of a glossy crow, but is known to occasionally appear as dire versions of other bird species. When in a humanoid form he is a young man with wavy dark hair, a long nose and a large smile. His skin is somewhat tanned and his eyes are hazel. He dresses like a Chaktawe, with an affinity for shiny green rings, but maintains human features, combining all cultures where he holds prominence.


After an encounter with the god, most followers express either feelings of cheer or an awakened curiosity. Eywaat is called Brother-Crow because the role he plays is that of a protective and playful older sibling. He is wise and clever, but commonly feigns confusion because he prefers his followers seek out their revelations through experience. As one who speaks to the birds, he has a vast knowledge of the world and what happens within it. His friendly personality tends to obscure his powers, so people are often surprised when he does something miraculous or requiring great physical strength or speed. It is thought the god prefers it this way, desiring his followers joy more than their cautious reverence.

Eywaat is also a fool for a pretty face paired with a witty tongue, and is not beyond trying to romance mortal women. His looks are less than god-like at the beginning of these romances, choosing only to reveal himself when he has won the girl's heart and discerned her inner goodness. While Eywaat has the charm of a young man and a lively spirit, he is not cruel. A woman he favors will be his paramour for as long as she wishes, however, she may have to share him. Eywaat has maintained ten wives and even more lovers at once.


Worshipping Eywaat can be through promoting ingenuity in invention and art or treating others (including birds) with the same care and attention Brother Crow shows to his followers. He is an admirer of artisans and will happily reward those who excel in their craft. Ingenuity can also be manifest through survival in adverse lands, such as the desert.

Eywaat also enjoys songs, dance and stories and occasionally sits invisible by fires to hear them told. A youthful god, he is still a little vain and delights in hearing tales about himself. This has given to the custom of setting a place for him in hopes he may manifest.
