Dyeus-Zatar (Proto-Zozan: ᐊᐄᐅ, The Father From Above) is a deity worshiped in many ancient Post-Allodian cultures among The Land of Zoza and Urn. While depictions of him vary greatly from mythos and culture, many common elements of him stay. He is usually depicted as an battle hardened middle aged to old man with long, red or black hair.
Dyeus-Zatar was the chief deity in many religions that featured him. He represented war, and the good and bad that it brought the cultures that worshiped him. He was a vicious and merciless warrior, which made other gods fear him. Ancient text mentioned how he would destroy entire kingdoms simply to make his followers fear and respect him more. Later depictions gave him a much more heavenly, but none the less cruel exterior.
Many origin myths on him vary, but usually have common elements. The most common version of the myth is thought to have originated from The Mouth of Zoza. It details how Dyeus-Zatar and his siblings, Dyeus-Gohut, Hieti-Konelio and Rashibur were born as full adults in the abstract land of Nieros. Dyeus-Zatar and his brother Dyeus-Gohut rose from the inky blackness that covered the realm and repelled the darkness. After the destruction of Nierous, a mysterious seed feel from the heavens, nearly instantly it grew into the "Life Tree", which gave birth to the ten "Sky Lands" and many "Lesser Lands".
Each God got their own Sky Land kingdom, and each lesser land blossomed into a realm of completely different possibilities. The first of these lands became the land of mortal men, the second of the immortal demons, the third into the ageless angels and the fourth into the land of great beings. Despite his cruel exterior, Dyeus-Zatar genuinely cared for the Human Realm and its denizens. Often protecting them against the immortal demons or great beings.
After thousands of years, the mythologies that worshiped him slowly died out and began to practice the current religions of the time. However during the Second Great Age, Master Ebon would rediscover the "old gods" of Urn and Zozan. Dyeus-Zatar fit his image of a perfect man and so he used him as the face and key factor of his artificial faith, the Ebonic cult of personality.
