The first apotheosed god

Score 324

Born: -95000

Arguably the most accomplished, driven, powerful entity in the entire Song With Many Verses, except for Gulith-Yasoth.

A mortal born in the First Universe, Tyrant was originally just a child who became a warrior. But that warrior became a warlord, that warlord became a conqueror, and that conqueror brought nations, and then planets, and then systems and even galaxies under their rule. 

But it wasn't until after she already stood astride the cosmos that she finally made her most significant accomplishment of all. At her behest, a great amount of research was done into the nature of the strange materials, Zenithium and Nadirium. This research determined that the metals interacted with the fabric of reality itself, and could be used in concert to manipulate all forms of Res.

Her artificers then crafted for her a planet-sized body made of the two metals: Nadirium mechanisms to push the fabric of reality to the shape of Tyrant's will, and Zenithium conduits to channel her will, and activate the Nadirium mechanisms. Lastly, Tyrant's mind was transferred neuron by neuron into the Zenithium pathways, and Tyrant was incarnated into her new body, becoming the first god to exist since The Original God.

Tyrant, at this point, was very nearly all-powerful. Her artificers had done flawless work, and there was no potency that Tyrant's form lacked. However, she was opposed in her supremacy. Tyrant's apotheosis had taken eons, and Gulith-Yasoth had been working away the entire time. A crawling evil that infected the souls of mortals, and reproduced by doing so, 2 qliphoths had multiplied exponentially, and become a tide that flooded infinity. The Outer Void pressed in from all sides, consuming planet after planet, system after system, and galaxy after galaxy, in a grotesque reflection of Tyrant's own conquest.

In no time at all, Tyrant was the last soul alive in her own universe. Anything and everything with less power than herself had been consumed and turned into qliphoths. Having not the power to overwhelm an entire universe turned against her, Tyrant heaved on the very edges of her power to make a desperate gamble. She picked up a stone and said, "I name you Jipitot. You will be the all-powerful god of a universe I create within this one. Whatever is writ upon you shall be your will, and your will shall be the absolute truth of that universe. Now go, and bring back allies." Then she hurtled the stone through the air and shattered reality like glass, passing Jipitot into the new universe. 

Having now bore witness to the birth of two universes, Gulith-Yasoth screamed as it had never screamed before. The combined host of all the qliphoths surged forward to destroy what had just been created. But Tyrant stepped forward as well to defend her new creation. Though she could not stop them all and keep herself alive, she stemmed the tide, as she still does to this day. Though little by little, the qliphoths sneak past, and down the line of universes all throughout the Song With Many Verses.
