Meet Nexus, the Lost Goddess of Terminus

Nexus, the Lost Goddess of Terminus
Nexus, the Lost Goddess of Terminus

Nexus is the divine figure whose existence predates every pantheon on Terminus. Her mysterious visitations to gods and mortals began in the wake of the first planar collisions, saving their souls from the void and offering them refuge upon her once lifeless world.

Not much is known of the lost goddess, Nexus. Her name was first recorded within the Astral Tome, a magical and intelligent manuscript that has existed since the dawn of time. It speaks of a time before the world of worlds came to be and where Nexus ruled over the entire universe. In that era all other deities bowed before her benevolence, each offering her a portion of their might. The entity that was Nexus became the central power of the universe, supreme and omnipotent. So she reigned, unchallenged for eons until the rise of an evil league of dark lords from the void of Myraxys. What followed was the sundering of the War Before Ages. In an effort to preserve all life from the corruption of the dark lords, she unleashed the power of the Terminus Arcana, magic so powerful only she could wield it. Then all went dark.

In the darkness, Nexus was reborn. A spark of her essence ignited and soon reached out across the veils of reality, now shattered by the power of the Terminus Arcana. Finding new worlds and civilizations, Nexus plucked life from other worlds so that Terminus could be reborn. Since then, she has made herself known as goddess, as warlord, as beast. Her visitations and visages can be many. Nexus is the lost goddess returned and Terminus is her ward.

Nexus Reaches Out

Prior to the launch of the Kickstarter site, resourceful fans were able to locate her on Twitter (@PantheonRotF). Here are the words she spoke, and a description of them.

January 9 - "Through shattered veils I reach out."
Nexus reaches out into the void to find heroes--you, the player.

January 10 - "In seas of lost legends I seek the ones."
She searches through many lost souls to find the heroes.

January 11 - "Slumbering within the void are the champions of lore."
Nexus finds the souls of the hero players.

January 12 - "Follow me to discover places long lost and gods once forgotten."
She gently pulls you from the void...

January 13 - "Rise! A world of worlds called Terminus awaits."
...and places you on Terminus.

      Although the look is obviously different, I can't help but feel Nexus is reminiscent of Firiona Vie, in a good way! Awesome :)

      Philisha Riddell - I agree with you. Female characters will appear strong, classy, and beautiful, without us resorting to thongs and the like.

      Goddess can be beautiful yes, but keep it classy, if she and the other females are designed after some anime girls I've run into on my gaming journey of many years I will lose what respect I have left for the industry. This backer isn't male and doesn't want to watch her own character's behind with a thong on. /shudder

      That was awesome. So far the story, the artwork, and the 'vision', is all blowing me away.

      James definitely did an epic job of creating the icon of the Pantheon universe. He is an Art God!

      If your going to have a Goddess then make her beautiful. Very well done. Name rings a bell for some reason :-)
