From the highest heavens, the mightiest gods watch down over Calopius. Thirteen thrones rise from their celestial palace from which they watch the full of their dominion. The first of them sits farthest away watching time itself slip by. The titan once known as Chronos forsook the name given by his mother Gaia and took for himself the name Grandfather Time. Glimpsing into the future, he saw the triumph of his children and turned to them as Purosphuros finished smithing the weapons of the gods for the Cosmomachy. Lead by Xiphios and his wife Aedai, eldest two of Grandfather Time’s children, they laid waste to the titans and monsters of Gaia, and ultimately triumphed.
Now, the Trisdekatheon is the greatest authority in Calopius. While they claim children, brothers, and sisters among the Hupotheon, they maintain greater authority save over individual domains. They rule jointly, and the primacy of Xiphios is accepted by all, save the grumblings of Thantadeus. Despite this, the gods can be petty and fickle when squabbling with one another, inspiring heroes to undermine the plans of other gods or offensive mortals as they make political moves to curry favor and alliances.
