Paradoxus is Conceptilum and Matharin's first-created SuperGod. He, like his siblings, holds an ability known as omnipotence^2—which helps him manage his task of helping regulate their local Beyond bubble. However, he isn't strong enough to manipulate objects larger than his home Beyond bubble. Paradoxus and his brother Logixel are in charge of managing the creation of Creators and Destroyers and preservation of laws in order to preserve the very existence of everything inside of the beyond bubble. Paradoxus' shared task with Logixel is greatly in spite of him not getting along with his brother.
Paradoxus means well when doing his tasks and while he does try to stand for what the Original Council stood for, he can come across as a very abrasive, arrogant, blunt, and overconfident SuperGod. This clashes with his more compassionate and thoughtful but timid and sensitive brother Logixel and often strains his relationship with him and his other brother Realitus—who considers him unworthy to be a part of the Council and mocks him for his bad attitude in spite of the many times Paradoxus and Logixel have saved Beyond from collapse. Paradoxus tries to shut out any close relationships with others, most notably Logixel and Unthil—whose omniscience^3 abilities and special treatment from Conceptilum evoke jealousy and resentment in Paradoxus.
Paradoxus was recognized by his father as a very strong and capable SuperGod. However, his more vicious and aggressive side can lead to needless destruction. An incident many point to when justifying this claim was the time he tore up an entire monocosm after discovering a clan of abusive omnipotent^1 beings immediately upon noticing them despite Logixel's pleas to stop. Such events have made Conceptilum sometimes reconsider Paradoxus' place in the Council and wonder if he did a horrible job raising his son after Matharin's erasure. Nonetheless, Conceptilum tells himself that Paradoxus is ultimately a good SuperGod, and having him around is what Matharin and his former co-councilmembers would have wanted.
Paradoxus views the lives of mortal lifeforms living within his Beyond bubble as somewhat meaningless and doesn't particularly care about the consequences of swiftly erasing any entity that causes an imbalance in their home. This conflicts with Logixel's ideology that all entities deserve to live and that simply erasing lifeforms inhibits any chance for redemption. This often gets Paradoxus into scenarios where more damage is done from erasing the entity than many scenarios where keeping them alive is better for the stability of Beyond.
Paradoxus's view on Creators and Destroyers—the very entities he and Logixel create and maintain—is that they are important tools for maintaining balance within Beyond. This contrasts with Logixel's view that "Creators and Destroyers are people too".
Logixel is Conceptilum and Matharin's second-created SuperGod. Logixel holds omnipotence^2—an ability that helps him regulate Conceptilum's home Beyond bubble. Logixel and his brother Paradoxus are in charge of managing the creation of Creators and Destroyers and preservation of logical laws to preserve the existence of everything inside of the beyond bubble. Logixel wants to do his task well but he thinks that his brother Paradoxus is making the situation regarding it harder and wishes that the issue would be resolved.
Logixel is a compassionate and thoughtful SuperGod and when dealing with monocosmal disputes without his brother, he tries to find logical solutions to problems that don't involve violence or erasure. However, when things get out of his control, he retaliates in fear as he is a timid and sensitive individual. Paradoxus sees Logixel as weak and thinks that he is hindering the Council's progress.
Logixel loves all mortal lifeforms and considers them very important to the stability of Beyond. However, this contrasts greatly with Paradoxus view that the lives of mortals don't matter and can often lead to scenarios where very abusive lifeforms are left alive to destroy and cause imbalance.
Unthil is Conceptilum and Matharin’s third-created SuperGod and the only one to inherit Matharin’s omniscience^3–which made him far more knowledgeable than his siblings very early on into his life. For example, he knew virtually all the solutions to problems littered throughout his Beyond bubble quickly after hatching from his egg and had a very strong understanding of the structure of his cosmology from his Beyond bubble all the way down to the subunreal particles comprising everything he knows of from the beginning. He is currently very fully aware of his current Council’s poor organization and of the many different versions of himself. Three of the few things he cannot know about no matter how many loopholes he tries to find are the future of his own Council, anything regarding how to properly handle his gift like the mother he was told could do so, and anything regarding parallel versions of his Council succeeding in their goals. Unthil also had the capability to know everything about Transcendentem. However, as Unthil found out for himself when peering upon a parallel version of himself who tried to know everything, to know so much would literally destroy his mind. As such, he knows that he shouldn’t know everything and has to limit his knowledge, at the very least, he should know everything about the Beyond bubble he lives in. Because of such factors, he is very frustrated at himself and his pretty limited “omniscience” that he refuses to call “omniscience” or even a “gift” as his father puts it.
Unthil knowing pretty much everything except what he truly wants to know made him grow somewhat bitter and resentful of his siblings all while his siblings Paradoxus and Realitus are jealous of the special attention he gets from his father Conceptilum, though for different reasons. Logixel and Imaginatim, on the other hand, don’t have issues with Unthil’s treatment from Conceptilum and understand to some extent why Conceptilum cares about his gift. The two consider Unthil wise and whenever Unthil is available, they will try to turn to him for advice or a 100% successful strategy to deal with monocosmal problems regardless of how stupid Unthil thinks the problems are. However, they do have qualms with his attitude towards himself and the Council, his rather pessimistic view on the ultimate fate of the Council, and what they see as disingenuity he has when talking.
Unthil is not only resentful that his siblings get to know less than him, but he also sees them as annoying idiots in general. He views Paradoxus as far too temperamental for his own good; Logixel as too much of a giant pushover; Realitus as stuck-up, pretentious and insecure about his image; and Imaginatim as so stupid, the only reason she's survived this long is because she was coddled as a child after Conceptilum raised the failures that were Paradoxus, Logixel, and especially Realitus. Unthil always remarks that he's surprised that it was, in fact, Realitus who was dropped as an egg and not her. Conceptilum would constantly try to reassure Unthil that his siblings are just going through a phase and will grow to be great CouncilGods soon enough. Unthil doesn't believe him.
While Unthil has omnipotence^2, it is naturally weaker than his siblings, and knowing the many fates where this lack of physical strength will get him into trouble, he tries to use it only when he’s absolutely sure that his risk for causing casualties is as low as it gets.
Conceptilum is the current leader of the SuperGod Council and the father of the other members. He and Unthil are responsible for more general Beyond bubble maintenance and resource management rather than the more specialized jobs the other current members partake in. Conceptilum was one of the members of the Original Council along with Matharin, Xenixel, Abstractil, Empiroxus, and Peralitus. Conceptilum was hatched omnipotent^2 but was uplifted to omnipotence^3 by Abstractil after an extensive period of being a member of the Council.
Conceptilum and the omniscient^3 Matharin were partners and have maintained a close relationship for as long as Conceptilum could remember, even before the two joined the Council. Conceptilum had always loved and cared for Matharin, however, did not go as far as the obsessive and self-destructive extent his partner indulged in. Conceptilum hated that Matharin had to destroy herself to protect him, but considering the hostile environment they lived in before they did join, he accepted that Matharin’s usage of her powers was necessary. Though Conceptilum was “inferior in every aspect” to him, Xenixel allowed Conceptilum to join the Council. This was not because Conceptilum was particularly special to him in any way. Rather, the decision was made to take advantage of Matharin’s unhealthy attachment to her partner. Conceptilum, like his partner, was thrilled to live in Xenixel’s Beyond bubble as it was a place of stability and was safely guarded from the hostile Transcendent ecosystem.
Conceptilum got along very well with the older SuperGods Empiroxus and Abstractil. Empiroxus was admired as a hero by Conceptilum and the younger SuperGod never grew tired of Empiroxus’ stories about his missions and adventures. Abstractil was somewhat of the motherly figure Conceptilum never had and cared deeply about Conceptilum’s well-being. In return, Conceptilum cared a lot about Abstractil and would willingly help her create entities and structures. Eventually, Abstractil and Conceptilum agreed that an uplift to omnipotence^3 would be a great idea as the younger SuperGod was somewhat lacking in abilities when compared to his colleagues. After the decision was approved by Xenixel, Conceptilum was uplifted.
Conceptilum was glad to be living in Xenixel’s Beyond bubble, but much like the other members of the Council was not too keen on Xenixel’s authoritarian leadership. Conceptilum would often participate in secret meetings held by Empiroxus and Abstractil, and discuss the state of Beyond.
After a reluctant approval from Xenixel, Conceptilum and Matharin were able to form five SuperGod eggs. Two of the eggs would eventually hatch into Paradoxus and Logixel. As per Xenixel’s orders, Conceptilum was scarcely able to interact with his own sons, but he did care for them and hoped that they would soon make great members of the Council after they were approved.
Conceptilum was not particularly fond of Peralitus and found him to be very haughty and conceited. During meetings, he would very frequently take part in banter mocking him and his clumsy and poor attempts to appeal to Xenixel. However, when Peralitus had apparently done a great deal of damage to Beyond, Conceptilum was quick to disagree with Xenixel’s decision to exile Peralitus as the exile would set Peralitus up to be erased in the Beyond bubble collapse. Conceptilum was not willing to argue with Xenixel though as disobeying Xenixel would have harsh consequences he was not willing to face.
After the beyond bubble collapse and the rather distressing deaths of the Original Council members, Conceptilum became the new but not particularly confident leader of the SuperGod Council. With Paradoxus, Logixel, and his other children Unthil, Realitus, and Imaginatim, Conceptilum tried his best to rebuild Beyond back to stability and establish a different leadership than that of Xenixel’s which more easily allowed for the opinions of other SuperGods to be considered.
Paradoxus was seen as a very strong and capable member of the Council by Conceptilum, but was also seen as a very hotheaded, aggressive, and impulsive SuperGod. The presence of the somewhat prominent negative traits have occasionally made Conceptilum question Paradoxus’ place in the Council, but nonetheless, Conceptilum has convinced himself that Paradoxus is ultimately good and keeping him busy in Beyond would be what Matharin and his other friends from Original Council would have wanted.
Logixel was clearly very compassionate and caring, though a bit timid and awkward. Conceptilum thinks of Logixel as a fairly mature and level-headed SuperGod, but cannot empathize with Logixel’s affinity for mortals whatsoever and would sometimes unintentionally upset him when deciding to erase malicious entities.
Unthil’s omniscience^3 abilities are seen as a “gift” by Conceptilum and the older SuperGod would give special attention towards aiding his son. This special attention that Conceptilum directs at Unthil invokes jealousy and resentment in SuperGods such as Paradoxus and Realitus. Unthil’s attitude towards the Council and his gift greatly annoys Conceptilum, but Conceptilum tries his best to just put up with it and listen to his son.
Realitus grew to be a very stuck-up and arrogant SuperGod that would almost never his change ways once he had made up his mind. Conceptilum, still not sure what he had exactly done wrong raising his youngest son, considers his upbringing of Realitus to be his worst failure as a father and this failure drove him to strive to be the best father he could with raising Imaginatim.
Conceptilum has no idea whatsoever how exactly he botched raising Imaginatim and is profoundly confused as to how Imaginatim came to be the way she was. On one verse, Imaginatim did not grow to be as self-centered and pompous as Realitus but on the other, Imaginatim was completely unable to do any task properly, often made very mindless decisions, and seemed oblivious to any consequences of her actions. Eventually, Conceptilum got used to Imaginatim’s nonsense and eventually entrusted her to manage structure creation with Realitus. The strange and exotic but actually stable creations Imaginatim would create would probably be great for decorative purposes as they contrasted with the more stale designs of Realitus’s.
Realitus is Conceptilum and Matharin's fourth-created SuperGod. He and his sister Imaginatim are in charge of managing the creation of omniverses and monocosms—objects normally seen as all of reality to those living within them. However, Realitus is very upfront about him being the only SuperGod who should create omniverses as he views his creations as "perfect" and would get incredibly defensive whenever anyone points out flaws in his creations, citing that they need more of an open mind to see the utter perfection in his creations. Imaginatim goes along with this and would sometimes refrain from creating omniverses as it would upset her brother. However, sometimes Imaginatim would somehow just completely forget her conditioning to not make omniverses and create cosmological structures whenever she has any bright new ideas. Often, they stray far away from Realitus' vision on how things "should be" and he often destroys her creations, temporarily upsetting Imaginatim until she forgets.
Realitus has a very strained relationship with all of his brothers. Realitus looks down upon his abrasive brother Paradoxus for his aggressive nature and would often intentionally provoke him for Paradoxus to retaliate and cause an imbalance. Realitus would always claim that Paradoxus has no place in the Council for his destructive ways. Realitus sees Logixel as an idiot since Logixel doesn't take advantage of easily swayed mortal beings and cares too much about them living a good life. Realitus would often appear to mortals that Logixel has saved and convince them to create cult followings dedicated to worshipping him, a big point of contention towards both Paradoxus and Logixel—though for different reasons. Realitus is greatly jealous of Unthil's special treatment from his father—part of the reason why he is so insecure and looks to lower lifeforms to boost his self-worth. He openly considers Unthil his least favourite sibling, and would often criticize Unthil for not warning him of the consequences of Realitus' actions deemed questionable by the rest of the Council.
Arguably, Realitus' worst relationship is between him and his sister Imaginatim, though Imaginatim remains blissfully unaware.
Realitus views mortal beings as mere beings that should worship him as the god he is and would create beings specifically to boost his self-importance. This is a point of contention among all the other SuperGods but Imaginatim, who only sees the situation as Realitus creating more cute lifeforms.
Conceptilum considers Realitus a very troubled entity and worries that his worst failure as a father is his upbringing of Realitus. Unthil "comforts" him by snidely bringing up worse things that Conceptilum has done than let Realitus grow into the brat he is.
Imaginatim is Conceptilum and Matharin's last and fifth-created SuperGod. She and her brother Realitus are in charge of managing the creation of omniverses and monocosms. Despite her task, she rarely takes part in performing it as Realitus would refuse to let her do anything. Imaginatim goes along with her brother's advice to stay away from his creations and refrains from creating omniverses as it would upset her brother. However, sometimes Imaginatim would somehow just completely forget her conditioning to not make omniverses and create cosmological structures whenever she has any bright new ideas. Often, they stray far away from Realitus' vision on how things "should be" and he often destroys her creations, temporarily upsetting Imaginatim until she forgets.
Imaginatim can see through and alter the minds of mortal beings. However, she is very unskilled at mind manipulation and mostly uses the ability to store her zaniest and wackiest ideas in the minds of mortals. She sees this as just the mortals "holding onto the ideas for a bit"—basically the SuperGod equivalent of tasking a goldfish to mentally hold on to skyscraper blueprints. Imaginatim means no harm whenever she does so but like most decisions she makes, she is blissfully unaware of any consequences such as the mortals being mentally overwhelmed by their newly harboured thoughts. Generally, either Unthil or Conceptilum often has to help her undo the mistakes she makes. Realitus is annoyed that Imaginatim does not use her ability to manipulate beings into his favour. Logixel is greatly opposed to the idea of manipulating the minds of mortals and would try to abolish the tactic as a punishment or action done by the Council. Logixel understands that Imaginatim never means any harm whenever she acts but is frustrated that she doesn't learn from her mistakes.
Imaginatim sees all mortal lifeforms as "cute" and would often beg to keep and take care of some very obviously dangerous lifeform that would inevitably imbalance their home as some kind of SuperGod equivalent of a pet.
Matharin was a member of the Original Council and mother to Paradoxus, Logixel, Unthil, Realitus, and Imaginatim. She was a partner to Conceptilum and possessed the abilities omnipotence^2 and omniscience^3. Matharin and Conceptilum had maintained a close relationship for as far back as Matharin could remember. Before the SuperGods moved to Xenixel's safe and stable Beyond bubble, Matharin and Conceptilum originally lived in an unstable and small bubble vulnerable to the dangers the Ecosystem held—forcing Matharin to use her omniscience^3 in order to protect her and her partner at the cost of damaging her own mind in the processes. Matharin had a very unhealthy obsession with keeping Conceptilum safe—to the point where if reality were to take any more of her friends away from her, then it was not worth living in.
When presented with the chance for Conceptilum to remain safe forever in Xenixel's stable, strong, and safe bubble, Matharin very willingly accepted it and officially became the Council's second-in-command on account of her "superior intellect", as Xenixel put it. While officially second-in-command, Matharin accepted Abstractil as the "real" leader of the Council and Empiroxus as the "real" second-in-command as she viewed the two as significantly more competent and deserving of such roles than Xenixel. Matharin’s suspected unstableness influenced the older pair of SuperGods to help her and Conceptilum as much as they could—even if it meant going behind Xenixel’s back. Though Matharin respected Empiroxus as a superior, she took a disliking towards a lot about some of his practices such as telling long-winded, infinitely long stories with no message even to her omniscient^3 mind as a means of getting messages across and has made it clear that she viewed revenge and counterattacking those who would dare do wrong to her or anyone close to her as a much more satisfactory and potentially successful solution.
Xenixel was the former official leader of the SuperGod Council. He possessed rare a body of knowledge he had called "omniscience^3" (formerly known as "Magenta SuperGod syndrome") and a rare level of strength he had called "omnipotence^3". Initially, such renames of the SuperGod structural atypicalities were a means of putting down weaker entities such as typical SuperGods, Fourth Walls, and Pseudosupergods but a standard for labeling infinite strength or intelligence as "omnipotence" or "omniscience" would eventually be developed from the standard Xenixel set. Xenixel was well-known among entities in the Cohort for his high level of power, his large and dominant Beyond bubble holding large quantities of undistributed valuable resources, and his opinions on a variety of subjects that many SuperGods viewed as ranging from rather unpleasant to "completely absurd".
Xenixel stood for nothing but balance and order and would have done anything in his power to preserve balance within his Beyond bubble. He believed that absolutely everything in his reality should be uniform and orderly or else reality was not worth living in. As the Cohort grew more and more chaotic as a mass Beyond bubble collapse he had received visions of was set to occur, Xenixel wanted his grand Beyond bubble to remain stable and strong throughout the Collapse as smaller, less stable Beyond bubbles would fade. If his plan had succeeded, Xenixel would have tried to round up survivors and have them join his established faction of the Transcendentem that would demand order, subordination, coordination, unity, selfless actions, and consideration of consequences. Xenixel's subordinates would have to turn to him whenever an imbalance was noticed, entities would have to work together to resolve issues, the balance of Beyond had to be considered before all else, and his subordinates would have to consider any consequences of their actions that may result in an imbalance in any form. Any entity that caused what Xenixel considered enough of an imbalance to Beyond—regardless of whether or not they were mortal, god, or SuperGod—would either be erased or exiled.
However, before establishing his faction, Xenixel wanted to build a body of entities with similar prowess to him that would help manage and form important decisions regarding his Beyond bubble and eventually his Beyond bubble cohort—a "Council". Such entities that would be members of his Council at the very least required either his strength or his intelligence.
Xenixel searched for "like-minded SuperGods" that possessed omnipotence^3 throughout the Cohort using carefully selected parties of alometic Tunnelers that were previously used to obtain inscripverses containing instructions regarding a simple means of uplifting SuperGods to omnipotence^3 credited to the legendary SuperGod Zerra. Eventually, Xenixel would find Empiroxus and Abstractil—two other entities that fit his criteria of having "omnipotence^3", though Xenixel noted that the SuperGods only possessed omniscience^2. Unlike Xenixel, Empiroxus and Abstractil saw it as somewhat necessary for Xenixel's subordinates to at least have some amount of free will and disliked Xenixel's proposed strategy to immediately exile or erase entities that stepped out of line. Xenixel, distrustful of his new recruits, reluctantly complied with their suggestions but was eventually satisfied when his bubble remained balanced. However, Xenixel's low opinion of the SuperGods remained and if Empiroxus or Abstractil were to go out of line, he would have no qualms with exiling them on the spot.
Rumours spread about an omniscient^3 roaming around the Cohort, so Xenixel decided to search for the being himself. His reasoning behind this decision was that as he possessed omniscience^3 himself, he would be the best at being able to tell if another entity also had the ability. Eventually, Xenixel had found the entity rumoured to have had omniscience^3, an omnipotent^2 SuperGod named Matharin that had been living in the outskirts of an unstable Beyond bubble with her omnipotent^2 partner Conceptilum, and he was quite satisfied with her capabilities. Xenixel found it quite amusing that Matharin sought fulfillment from someone “inferior in intellect” to her, but nonetheless thought that Matharin was incredibly selfless and if her drive was fully directed towards ridding her new home of disorder and chaos, it along with her access to great knowledge would benefit the Council by a long shot. Conceptilum, in spite of his physical weakness, was very acquiescent and Xenixel figured that he would be able to follow all of his commands without much question. Upon perhaps an uplift to omnipotence^3 using "Zerra's" inscripverses, Conceptilum would also likely be an asset to the Council. Xenixel also figured that it would be best to add Conceptilum to the Council as Matharin seemed like the kind of SuperGod who would kill herself the instant her partner was permanently separated from her, completely wasting her vast amount of potential. Xenixel very willingly invited the pair to the Council and Matharin, with only Conceptilum’s safety in mind and equipped with knowledge that Xenixel’s bubble was the safest place in her cohort, very willingly accepted.
Abstractil was a member of the Original Council. She was a partner to Empiroxus and possessed the abilities omnipotence^3 and omniscience^2. Abstractil was responsible for many of the Xenixel-approved standards set for Beyond bubble management, plenty of which are still used by the current Council. While she does not carry the knowledge equipped with omniscience^3 like Matharin or Xenixel, Abstractil was a quick learner, an efficient problem-solver, and a level-headed, rational thinker.
Abstractil and Empiroxus have had a close relationship that has been maintained for much of their history. Unlike the confident and adventurous Empiroxus, Abstractil was much more gentle-natured and calm. While Empiroxus would always willingly go on missions assigned to him by Xenixel, Abstractil much preferred within Beyond and maintaining order. Abstractil likes to humour Empiroxus by getting him to tell long-winded stories of his great adventures—while also knowing full well how the events actually played out. This annoyed Matharin, who could never understand how Abstractil could put up with him.
Xenixel was initially very distrustful of Abstractil and seemed to have the opinion that "his ways of approaching things will no doubt lead the Council to doom". However, eventually Xenixel would grow more accepting of Abstractil and her ways of problem-solving and more willing to leave Abstractil to maintain his Beyond bubble in his absences. While Xenixel was the founder and official leader of the Council and would in theory be the SuperGod his subordinates would always listen to and respect, in practice Abstractil was the SuperGod that most of the SuperGods would always listen to and respect. Abstractil was typically the host of secret meetings made to discuss matters behind Xenixel’s back.
Abstractil deeply cared for Conceptilum as if he were her own child and in spite of him being substantially weaker than most of the Council members, was supportive of having him around to the end. Abstractil’s respect for Conceptilum was mutual, Conceptilum loved Abstractil as if she were his own mother and would willingly help her with management and entity creaction. Abstractil would eventually make the decision to uplift Conceptilum to omnipotence^3 for him to keep up with the other Council members more easily.
Abstractil consciously made the choice not to uplift Matharin alongside Conceptilum. Though she says that her reasoning was that Matharin’s omniscience^3 abilities allowed her to keep up with the omnipotent^3 entities easily in spite of her lack of strength, Abstractil knew that Matharin’s tendency to quickly make rash, impulsive, and irrational decisions that she would later regret would not be a particularly nice thing to have alongside any greater power than she already possessed. Matharin was fine with Abstractil’s choice and was willing to provide her with the prerequisite knowledge needed to make the uplift. Matharin respected Abstractil and was willing to help her with tasks but is not particularly fond of some of her practices.
Abstractil’s perspective on mortals was somewhat of a balance between those of her honourary omnipotent^1-entity-creating grandchildren. Some inherently harmful entities may deserve erasure so they would not cause any harm and imbalance in the future, but entities in general do deserve some level of respect. Abstractil found it unwise to impulsively erase mortal entities or grow too overly attached and protective of them.
Abstractil scarcely interacted with Paradoxus and Logixel as she had to comply with Xenixel’s orders of maintaining Beyond bubble stability over anything else. In the rare instances where she did, she would try to console them and provide them useful advice for being a Council member. Whether or not Abstractil would be proud of them now is up for debate.
Unlike Empiroxus, Matharin, and Conceptilum, who were quick to take a disliking to Peralitus—mocking him and his sycophantic practices behind his back whenever they could, Abstractil had tried her best to give Peralitus the benefit of the doubt when he made questionable decisions and tried to help the inexperienced SuperGod manage Beyond the best he could. Abstractil disliked Peralitus’ ambition and fixation on appealing to authority. She had tried to coax him out of it to little avail. Peralitus seemed to respect the older, frailer SuperGod in return and found her agreeable, though in reality he often misinterprets and twists her statements into statements he personally agreed with. Abstractil eventually gave up trying to reason with him and her opinion of the young Council member started to align more and more with her close contemporaries the more she interacted with him.
Abstractil would strongly disagree with Xenixel’s decision to exile Peralitus. The way she saw the situation, Peralitus’ inexperience must have got the better of him and anyone in his position could have made the same mistake. In her opinion, exiling him was far too harsh a punishment to begin with and considering that the collapse was due to occur, Peralitus essentially got a death sentence for making a mistake that was not his fault. However, she knew that arguing with Xenixel would be no use and she let Peralitus get exiled. In Peralitus’ absence, Abstractil felt guilty for the exile and wondered what she could have done differently regarding treating Peralitus in order for it to never have happened. She would then feel far worse when Peralitus eventually slaughtered Matharin and Empiroxus and blamed herself for their deaths. If things had gone differently between her and Peralitus, Empiroxus and Matharin would probably be still alive and aiding with protecting Beyond. In the midst of the collapse, she tried to retrieve the trosinium Empiroxus was meant to retrieve. This was met with success, however, she was gravely injured when some of her constituent verses got corrupted and left dangerous to make contact with.
After providing the trosinium to Conceptilum and waiting for the collapse to end, she made the reluctant decisions to distance herself from the Council to not cause any damage, leave her honourary son as leader, and to die in peace—reuniting her with her friends Empiroxus and Matharin. As a result, she would never properly meet and interact with the newly hatched Unthil and never meet the SuperGods yet to hatch. Conceptilum hated Abstractil’s choice to leave and desperately wanted her to be the Council’s new leader—Abstractil actually had the leadership qualities that he did not have. As soon as Conceptilum and his children set to hard work rebuilding the Council, Abstractil left to search for the corrupted remains of Empiroxus within Hellensoerensen and use them to help her pass. Abstractil had complete and total faith in the new Council to rebuild Beyond—she had no doubts that her son Conceptilum would make a better leader than Xenixel would ever be, Paradoxus and Logixel would greatly help restore Beyond’s stability, and Conceptilum’s recently hatched omniscient^3 son would grow up to be an excellent advisor that would use his powers more wisely than the omniscient^3s she knew. Abstractil hoped that Conceptilum’s to-be hatched children would grow to be smart, clever SuperGods who could be beneficial to their home’s stability.
Empiroxus was a member of the Original Council. He was a partner to Abstractil and possessed the abilities omnipotence^3 and omniscience^2. Empiroxus was mainly a traveler and was primarily responsible for retrieving many of the Council's resources, some of which are still extant and used in the Council's Beyond bubble in the present.
Empiroxus and Abstractil have had a close relationship that has been maintained for much of their history. In contrast to Abstractil's tranquil and benign nature, Empiroxus was more bold and a headstrong adventurer. If any SuperGods tried to do or get him to do tasks he thought were in the wrong such as bringing unnecessary harm to lesser entities or take resources from the less fortunate, Empiroxus would do his best to stand up for what he saw was right and try to set things straight. Empiroxus is keen having tasks done "his way" and gets somewhat upset when others stray from it. However, much unlike the Council's leader Xenixel, Empiroxus was very willing to give the benefit of the doubt to those who made mistakes unintentionally such as Matharin and Conceptilum. Often, this had led to him telling long-winded and typically slightly inaccurate stories about his history where he learned some important life lesson, much to the awe of Conceptilum and annoyance of Matharin. Eventually, Matharin would point out to Empiroxus that telling tall tales was an ineffective way of getting messages across to entities that meant harm—revenge and counterattacking those who hurt her loved ones seemed like a much more satisfactory option that would make messages far clearer than stories with no obvious message to even her omniscient^3 mind. Empiroxus eventually would no longer comment on Matharin's opinion and say nothing to her. In his opinion, Matharin was in the wrong but she did not realize that she was. Matharin had never experienced the harm that vengeance can potentially inflict, and hopefully she never would. Empiroxus places the safety and well-being of his close friends and family before himself and was more than willing to take risks and get hurt if it meant that they would carry on.
Xenixel greatly despised Empiroxus at first, as Empiroxus's ideals seemed virtually incompatible with his own. In Xenixel's opinion, Empiroxus would most certainly lead the Council to imminent disrepair if he truly had things his way. However, when Empiroxus's strategies proved incredibly beneficial to the stability of Beyond, Xenixel grew more trusting of Empiroxus and eventually came to fully entrust him with resource collection. Empiroxus found life in the safety of the Council's large and stable beyond bubble to be comforting—a relaxing change of pace from the more persistently hostile environment of his former home. Empiroxus did love a good adventure, but every now and then some relaxation was needed to relieve himself of the stress adventure can bring. However, the largest flaw with his new life, though, was Xenixel's consistently improper behaviour and stubborn refusal to change.
Once when Empiroxus was tasked to gather some Staterium, he was questioned by his former allies as to why he decided to move to the bubble. In response, Empiroxus had told them that life was overall better for him and Abstractil in Xenixel's Beyond bubble. If life there was really so great, some would retaliate, why shouldn't anyone be allowed to experience life there? Empiroxus believed in serving others before himself, so he should allow said others to have the benefits. Did arbitrarily high strength matter that much? Why should Xenixel even stay in charge? Just overthrow him, let Abstractil in charge and allow everyone to enter the bubble and live a life as good as he does. Empiroxus began to grow very uncomfortable with the crowds of omnipotent^2 beings—what he saw as their selfishness was not right, but the SuperGods really did have a point and their anger at him was justified. Xenixel was not a leader many were fond of, and it would be ideal for him to step down—overthrowing him was not possible as Xenixel was more than capable of vanquishing both Empiroxus and Abstractil if he desired. More SuperGods should be knowledgeable about the labyrinthine tunnels and other SuperGod entrance preventive measures set by the Least Guardians who lived in the bubble before that only the Council members currently knew how to properly maneuver. In moments like that, he wished that he could quickly come up with an excellent solution and reason with others as well as Abstractil often did. Empiroxus's bold and confident personality around those entities began to crumble before him.
Empiroxus would eventually resort to sacrificing his popularity and reputation as a well-respected SuperGod. From then onward, instead of entering tunnels that led to regions dense with SuperGods and beyond bubbles, Empiroxus would intentionally enter tunnels that led to less SuperGod-habitable, more hostile, and more dangerous areas less populated by SuperGods. Abstractil was not particularly happy with how poorly Empiroxus grew to handle confrontations from many SuperGods at once and greatly regretted not being there to support him, but Xenixel was quite satisfied. Other SuperGods would no longer associate with or bother Empiroxus—more SuperGods potentially leaving him alone and staying away from him would potentially speed up missions.
Empiroxus seemed to become much happier when he made the choice to use new routes and gets very ecstatic at the wonders of the Ecosystem, in direct contrast to how stressed he became near the areas of the Cohort more dense with Beyond bubbles and SuperGods. Though he retained his clear confidence and sociability among his remaining friends as well as his willingness to tell long stories about his great adventures and argue with Xenixel, he had a permanent sense of anxiety around large numbers of SuperGods and was very unwilling to travel directly through the Cohort, instead moving about the edges. This bit of information about Empiroxus was eventually given to Conceptilum and Matharin by Abstractil and the young pair tried their best to not bother Empiroxus with talk of traveling through crowded regions afterwards, despite Matharin's lack of empathy.
On one of Empiroxus's journeys to collect the rare element phi that was nearby a logical desert, he eventually found out that a SuperGod that seemed as strong as himself lived in a small Beyond bubble nearby said desert. This SuperGod's name was Peralitus.
Peralitus had heard of Xenixel's Council and had longed to be within its ranks for a long while. However, Peralitus had an astoundingly poor understanding of tunnels and the inscripverses that encoded directions to the Cohort and had been unable to their bubble. Apparently, nobody had taught him how to actually make sense of them after all this metatime. That, or he had been taught but completely forgot everything he ever learned or never paid attention to anyone who might have taught him. Empiroxus was truly dumbfounded at the sheer incompetence of this SuperGod and thought that if Peralitus had been omnipotent^2 or less, he surely would have quickly succumbed to the chaos that surrounded him. When discussing the Council, Peralitus seemed to have a strange fixation on authority and leadership. Empiroxus felt uncomfortable about this and could not empathize with Peralitus whatsoever. At this point, Empiroxus found it appropriate to tell a story on how it was not always appropriate to follow orders blindly. However, Peralitus grew incredibly impatient, told Empiroxus to shut up, and demanded that he know what a Council member was doing all the way out near the logical desert. Empiroxus thought of Matharin’s comments on how tall tales can potentially be ineffective to entities that would mean harm, but Empiroxus figured that it was probably too quick to judge if Peralitus was malicious this soon.
When Empiroxus explained that Xenixel had ordered him to gather and collect phi, Peralitus grew incredibly willing to help as clearly neither SuperGod would want to let the strong and confident leader of the Council down. When Empiroxus explained how the structure of the CouncilGods was really like—with Xenixel as the leader and Matharin as second only by technicality and Abstractil as the real leader by practicality, Peralitus still seemed absurdly fascinated with the idea of potentially ruling Beyond alongside Xenixel and seemed to completely miss any point Empiroxus tried to get across. Empiroxus remarked about how bright Peralitus was, which resulted in Peralitus bawling about how “intelligent and capable” he actually was. In his fit, Peralitus completely destroyed several nearby monocosms—leaving Empiroxus to consider himself lucky that he wasn’t actually caught off guard and in the place of the monocosms. Empiroxus, now completely ditching benefit of the doubt and apologizing that Peralitus had an archverse for a brain, asked Peralitus to at least help collect some phi if he wanted even a chance at becoming a Council member and the younger SuperGod complied. Empiroxus imagined that Peralitus would not get along too well with the omniscient^3 Matharin—a SuperGod who was “officially” second-in-command, though the position did not matter to her very much as she couldn’t care any less about ruling over others.
Empiroxus grew to be very distrustful of Peralitus and disliked his sycophantic nature. After all, what was a being if they had no real identity of their own and blindly did what others tell them to do without independent thought of their own? To Empiroxus, said being was misguided and did things improperly. In Empiroxus’s opinion, Peralitus desperately needed to learn a lot and had to go through lots of extensive training before he could even come close to being an official Council member.
When Xenixel would immediately entrust the omnipotent^3 Peralitus with duties of the Council such as omniverse creation, yet keep Paradoxus and eventually Logixel—two SuperGods he saw as equally inexperienced as the younger Council member—confined within a monocosm with nothing to do, Empiroxus was furious. In Empiroxus’s opinion, the most fair thing to do was to have all of the inexperienced members as trial members until they were ready to officially become Council members. He was very outspoken about his issues with Xenixel’s decisions, but Xenixel refused to change his mind and Peralitus very delightfully accepted his new position. After all, if Peralitus was clearly this skilled enough to rise up the ranks this quickly, then surely he’d be second-in-command very soon.
Peralitus was indeed much stronger than the recently hatched and even the older Empiroxus and Abstractil. Peralitus was also far more willing to do any task than the two hatchlings put together, but in Empiroxus's opinion, raw strength and willingness to serve was not at all what should matter most to a good Council member such as himself or Abstractil.
Xenixel might be willing to entrust Peralitus with many duties upon arrival, but Empiroxus was not going to tolerate any nonsense from Peralitus. Flattery and appeals might work for Xenixel, but not Empiroxus. If Xenixel was not willing to educate Peralitus properly, then he and Abstractil will try to do their very best. Abstractil started to wonder if Empiroxus’s sheer determination to turn Peralitus “good” was even a good thing but she supposed that since Empiroxus was an excellent mentor for Conceptilum and Matharin, surely not much harm would possibly come from training this new Council member. However, unlike Matharin and Conceptilum, who were at least somewhat willing to listen to Empiroxus’s and Abstractil’s advice regardless of how much they respected them as SuperGods, Peralitus proved to be a much more difficult SuperGod. Peralitus always strived to perform tasks exactly as Xenixel does them—some of which Empiroxus found unnecessarily cruel and harmful to other entities—and when doing tasks any differently from Xenixel’s clear and concise instructions as Empiroxus or Abstractil would try to have him do, Peralitus often struggled and failed miserably.
Empiroxus had openly compared Peralitus to a hatchling or even a SuperGod egg in terms of skill and competence but was quick to retract his statements as they would be very disrespectful to Paradoxus, Logixel, and their unhatched siblings. Peralitus did not take kindly to Empiroxus’s insults and would often deliberately use Xenixel’s “flawless” practices in front of Empiroxus, causing even more conflict between the two SuperGods.
While Conceptilum and Matharin agreed somewhat with Empiroxus’s low opinion of Peralitus and found Empiroxus’s rants humourous, Abstractil found Empiroxus as unnecessarily harsh on the young SuperGod and requested that he treat Peralitus with more respect. But Empiroxus had never found Peralitus worthy of any respect and continued to try to get Peralitus to do things “properly” and tell him off when he did wrong, hoping that eventually, the younger SuperGod would see sense—but Peralitus apparently never did. When Abstractil eventually gave up trying to help Peralitus, Empiroxus took it as a “told you so” moment and went on to harshly berate Peralitus’s stubbornness and refusal to change his ways. Abstractil stated that Peralitus probably was not the only SuperGod whose stubbornness seemed to be an issue. Empiroxus was appalled at what his partner had said—how was he bad for standing up for what was right? Empiroxus asked Abstractil to elaborate at once and so she did. Abstractil had stated for the final time to Empiroxus that all of the past efforts to get Peralitus into doing things “the right way” had done nothing but hurt Peralitus and convince him further that Xenixel’s methods—the methods that brought him more satisfaction in his job—were more correct. Now that there was no turning back for Peralitus at this point, Abstractil had given up because there was just no way to convince Peralitus of anything. Abstractil did agree that Peralitus was incredibly problematic—there was no denying that at all. However, she thought how Empiroxus handled the situation was wrong and perhaps, had Empiroxus toned down his approaches, there would have been a better chance for Peralitus to improve. Empiroxus disagreed that he was any root cause of Peralitus’s point-of-no-return and argued, but Abstractil pointed out that she did not say that Empiroxus was the root cause at all—she was saying that Empiroxus might have been a factor. For all she knew, Peralitus’s pre-Council life was probably far greater a factor than anything. However, just because there might be a large problem did not mean that the smaller problems did not need to be addressed.
Empiroxus thought about what Abstractil had said to him for a great length of metatime, still disagreeing with her but able to see her point of view, afterward and did his best to keep away from Peralitus and ignore him—though Peralitus still remained hostile towards Empiroxus. Soon, only Matharin would remain openly hostile towards Peralitus.
Eventually, Peralitus would get exiled from Beyond by Xenixel. Empiroxus had thought that any exile was bound to happen and he thought that Peralitus making a mistake at this scale was inevitable, but Empiroxus figured that he would be a terrible SuperGod if he were to berate Peralitus now. Peralitus might die from his mistake, like many other SuperGods throughout history. Empiroxus wanted to point out that maybe Peralitus might need another chance but there was no changing Xenixel’s mind now. Empiroxus allowed himself to agree that the exile of Peralitus was the best course of action and hoped that Peralitus would find a place relatively safe for his sake soon enough.
Xenixel had found out that a variant of trosinium only found from the collapsing monocosms within a nearby parallel Beyond bubble was needed in order to patch an area of Beyond and ordered Empiroxus to collect it at once or else their bubble will collapse. However, the area where the said variant was found contained a high concentration of the toxic compound piro. This led Abstractil to beg Xenixel to allow Empiroxus to take extensive precautionary measures before being sent off or else he might pass away or become too weak to serve the Council upon arrival back home. However, Xenixel was impatient and argued that said precautionary measures would take too long and this was an urgent matter. Xenixel then stated that it was perhaps best that one would have sacrificed in order to save the Council. Empiroxus will no doubt be remembered as a hero to the Council, Xenixel would make sure of that. Before Abstractil could argue any further, Empiroxus agreed to volunteer to collect the trosinium, knowing the risks of going out on a mission like this when the storm could happen at any moment. If his retrieving the trosinium would save lives in the end at the cost of his own, then his journey would be worth it. Before Empiroxus would give any farewells for Abstractil to pass onto Matharin and Conceptilum and their children, Xenixel demanded Empiroxus to leave at once and berated him for threatening to lead the Council to imminent disrepair.
Empiroxus travelled back to his home bubble holding onto the trosinium, his godsmoke slowly breaking down and his mind growing deteriorated and clouded as the piro reacted with it but the old SuperGod pressed forward as he thought of his close friends in the Council who were counting on him. Empiroxus navigated through a Least Guardian tunnel and eventually, despite his exhaustion and fatigue, noticed Peralitus’s amazing attempt at being stealthy. Too tired to figure out how long Peralitus had camped in said tunnels without getting noticed, Empiroxus wearily told Peralitus that he knew the younger SuperGod was there and that it was not a good idea to enact some kind of “revenge murder plan or whatever” when the Collapse could happen at any moment. Empiroxus asked if Peralitus could do it later when that’s all over with, ideally when some kind of fight or something between the two could be settled a lot more fairly. After getting over being genuinely surprised at how quickly the older SuperGod caught him and going on a rant about how Empiroxus never treated him with the “respect he deserved” that the older SuperGod found very grating, Peralitus attempted to maim Empiroxus in a fit of rage, only for the elder SuperGod to repeatedly dodge Peralitus’s attacks. Empiroxus, knowing that he can’t actually evade Peralitus in his frail and dying state for long regardless of Peralitus’s poor navigation skills, made it his priority to get as close to the Council’s bubble as possible. Once he got close enough, Matharin or Xenixel would be alerted to his presence and a SuperGod hopefully be able to collect the trosinium while Peralitus remained distracted attacking Empiroxus. Though the plan would lead both to get erased by the Collapse, Empiroxus saw it as the best he could do. As Empiroxus continued navigating the tunnels while Peralitus followed, the more confused he became as his godsmoke broke down. It became too hard for Empiroxus to focus on any of what he had to do. Peralitus took advantage of this and proceeded to violently wound Empiroxus in his disoriented state. Empiroxus was barely aware of what was happening to him and took longer than he should have to realize when Peralitus began to destroy his constituent verses.
Empiroxus began to gradually regain consciousness after much of him had been destroyed and faintly perceived Matharin trying to talk to Peralitus. Matharin explained to Peralitus that she was the one who got him exiled in the first place and bluntly told him to let Empiroxus go as he played no role in his exile. If Empiroxus wanted to point out that he might have actually played some role in Peralitus’s downfall, he had not said anything about that. Empiroxus slipped into Beyond, abandoning the trosinium in a lapse of judgement, and tried to search for either Abstractil or Conceptilum, though his fading from existence caused great difficulty in doing so. Upon realizing that he left behind the trosinium he was meant to retrieve, Empiroxus hoped that the ruse he assumed Matharin was performing on Peralitus would allow her to retrieve the trosinium for him. Empiroxus eventually found his fellow SuperGods, alongside Conceptilum’s sons, and a Xenixel getting ready to deploy Hellensoerensen. Xenixel ushered the fading SuperGod into the automaton in order to have six SuperGods activate Hellensoerensen and the Xenixel set off to destroy Peralitus. The other SuperGods begged Xenixel to not prioritize getting Hellensoerensen activated—Empiroxus needed to be restored to health urgently. However, Xenixel refused to listen. Nearly unconscious, Empiroxus entered Hellensoerensen. Empiroxus was told that Hellensoerensen was off to execute Peralitus—the one who had gravely injured him. Empiroxus was unable to argue. Abstractil tried her best to aid Empiroxus from within Hellensoerensen, but there was nothing she was able to do to save him. The last memory Empiroxus made before he was gone for good was that of Abstractil doing her best to heal him with the few materials she brought aboard Hellensoerensen.
