"The All-Father" is the name for Eld used by members of the High Eldenari Church. This name reflects the Eldenari Orthodox belief that the All-Father is the creator, sustainer, and judge of all mortal life in Ao, exercising his divine providence to guide the world to a final, cataclysmic end in which his followers are given dominion over a New Ao while the rest of humanity is consigned to oblivion.
