    I don't want to be confrontational here, but...

    Luna‟s chief architect was Cytherea, the trigger of divine evolution who provided Gaia‟s Essence with the substance it needed to produce Creation.

She was also attracted to Gaia, and Glories of The Most High: Luna tells us that she was the primary creator of Luna, intended to tie Gaia to Creation and prevent her from wandering away looking for the Shining Answer.
    Cytherea wasn't anyone's primary architect. Oramus probably contributed more in that story, since yesteredition's presentation of Cytherea was like the Yozi answer to the X-Men character Fabian Cortez.

    I like the idea of even the Yozis not knowing anything more about her.

    "Somewhere in Malfeas dwells Cytherea, the Mother of Creation, about whom nothing more is known."

    That I think originally was meant to be the Alpha and Omega of what was well, known about her. It's notable in a few things that she first got tied into the Mountain Folk story (which suddenly we knew how she helped make Creation suddenly) and then 2e did some stupid stuff of making her Walmart Kimbery in Malfeas, and a bunch of stuff of her suddenly bein gthe Mother of All Things (which has really different connattations) and bieng a big bang and then being a Schrodinger Yozi.

    But as a like, thing in Games of Divinity? I think she was originally meant to be a big fat giant plot hook that someone else can expand on to be any number of things her name and position to Creation can be speculated or expanded on.

    How did I only just learn that this was a thing?

    It's a forest though more than a tree. And it just happens to you know, have roots growing into the sky.

    Kimbery and Oramus are also 1e alumni too, huh. Didn't know that till I went to check.

    Only Isidoros is directly related to cosmic phenomena and that was more something added to him as the setting evolved. In the original Games of Divinity, Malfeas was based much more on just adding big infinite scary demon city to the descriptions from the corebook, which themselves were inspired by bits of Malfeas from the World of Darkness. Cecylene and Adorjna I think were there to just kind of introduce scale and concepts of Yozis in general. SHLiHN was to show non-geogrpahical Yozis, plus bits of the Weaver from WoD. And the Ebon Dragon was something we knew about since Exalted: the Dragon-Blooded and then got retooled to fit in the Yozi paradigm shown in the book.

    Anything with Cytherea being a Big Bang, Isidoros being an actual black hole pun (that one is a pun btw, a boar/bore that twists the skies). Nothing else though I think was that until fanon and later material expansion built that in and such. But their original conceptions ahd nothing to do with, as i gather, cosmological references.

    I think I am misremembering them being called science Pun. It was a few years ago.
