The Lost Gods are ancient deities possibly older than the Cosmic Balance and far more powerful than either Chaos or Law. There are only two of them, the brothers Kwll and Rhynn. The brothers had sworn a vow never to commit violence upon one another. It was a sacred vow, and one day it was broken. The brothers fought each other and Rhynn struck off Kwll's Hand, while Kwll gouged out Rhynn's Eye. After this, they accepted their punishment for breaking their one sacred rule. Kwll was placed into Tanelorn and sealed away, unable to escape since he was now incomplete. Rhynn was cursed to forever search for his eye without the hand and never find it, since the two were always together.
Eventually, Corum Jhaelen Irsei would receive both the Hand of Kwll and the Eye of Rhynn to replace his missing right hand and left eye. When at the end of his adventures, he at last came to Tanelorn. There, Corum returned Hand of Kwll and the Eye of Rhynn to their original owners in return for help fighting the Chaos Lords. Kwll and Rhynn, now complete, were the most powerful beings in the Multiverse, and were even able to disregard the Cosmic Balance. They fulfilled their oath and slew all the Chaos Lords, but they also killed the Lords of Law for good measure, leaving mortals free to weave their own destiny, without the meddling of any gods from either side.
Description[edit | edit source]
Each of the brother gods have four arms with six fingers on each hand, with grinning faces and jeweled, alien bodies. Kwll is considerably smaller than Rhynn and has four legs while Rhynn only has two.
