Icons

Summary

The Icons, also known as Lesser Gods, were once mortals who accomplished great deeds. Each one who ascended to godhood was acknowledged by a Paradox then approved by a Primal. Not everyone is capable of becoming a Paragon. Many great individuals have been disregarded despite their deeds. The way to achieve the status of Paragon is a mystery to all save for the gods.
Icons worshiped are often only relevant to one area.
