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.
