In Scott Lynch's Gentleman Bastard series, are the Twelve/Thirteen (listed below) supposed to be real? By this I mean if within that universe, they are supposed to be real entities, or merely the deities of a made up religion?

  • Iono - The Lord of the Grasping Water, god of the sea.
  • Aza Guilla - The Lady of the Long Silence, goddess of death.
  • Perelandro - Lord of the Overlooked, god of mercy and charity.
  • Gandolo - Lord of Coin and Commerce, god of merchants and trade.
  • Nara - The Lady of Ubiquitous Maladies, goddess of sickness and poison.
  • Morgante - The Lord of Noose and Trowel, god of law and order.
  • Callo Androno - The Eyes on the Crossroad, god of travel, languages and lore.
  • Preva - Lady of the Red Madness, goddess of love, madness and inspiration.
  • Venaportha - The Lady With Two Faces, goddess of luck.
  • Dama Elliza - Mother of Rains and Reaping, goddess of agriculture and farming.
  • Sendovani - goddess of secrets, mysteries, knowledge, alchemy.
  • Azri - god of nature, weather and war.
  • The Nameless Thirteenth - The Crooked Warden, the Benefactor, god of thieves.

    I don't think they appear as characters, but they seem to be as real to their adherents as any deity, fictional or otherwise – Adele C Feb 17 '18 at 16:00
