Well I do remember one of the devs stating the reason Moon Godlike's are named as such is not because of a Lunar deity, but simply because they like to wear their trousers at half mast.

Moon Godlikes like to spend their cash in a hurry. By the end of the month, they're down to their last quarter.

Probably on Something Awful, the database is down at the moment however so I can't view the old thread.

 

But yeah pretty sure there's a moon/ondra godlike

Here is the quote:

 No one actually knows for certain that godlike are created by divine intervention. Their appearances suggest strong alignment with certain deities -- e.g. there are godlike who exhibit physical properties associating them with the moon and water, which are both aspects of Ondra -- but there is no direct proof or divine confirmation.

 

In the npc backer survey you could also choose moon godlike, that's the reason they are called moon godlike in the wiki.

 

Edit: the quote is from the current thread in the Something Awful forums. here(behind a paywall).

The official info page is a typo. It's "Moo'n" godlike. It's a bovine deity. 8)

So do bored human teenagers in PoE tip these godlikes when they're asleep? Will there be a cutscene or option to participate in the tipping? When playing a Moo'n godlike can you be tipped as a random encounter?

No I'm pretty sure it's moon. Like the planetary satellite. There's no bovine deity in this game. I don't think that's right.

Thanks Prometheus, do someone know if there is more information about Ondra deity?

I don't think there is much more information about Ondra. The dyrwoodan renamed a district of defiance bay after her, because a phenomenon associated with her, helped them to destroy many aedyran ships. So it's likely that we will see some Priests of Ondra in Pillars of Eternity. See quote below from Something Awful forums(behind a paywall).

 

 

As far as most people know, there is one moon, Senn Beläfa (or Ondran Beläfa, "Ondra's Beloved", but most people just call it "Beläfa"). It is smaller than Earth's moon but closer to the planet and has a faster orbit. Tides in some coastal areas are more extreme than on Earth. Though uneducated people are unaware of it, there is also a second moon called Cawldha Dev (Glanfathan for "Black Runner"). It has a very fast and irregular orbit. When circumstances are right (wrong), Beläfa and the Cawldha Dev create what the Glanfathans call "Lovers' Tides", which are catastrophically destructive. During the Dyrwoodan revolution, the Glanfathans predicted a Lovers' Tide and helped the colonists use it to their advantage when the Aedyran navy attacked Defiance Bay (then New Dunryd). A huge number of Aedyran ships were destroyed and the ancient adra levee facing the Pearlwood Gulf was broken, creating the still partially-flooded district now known as Ondra's Gift.

Perhaps it's not a cow, but... That's No Moon:shifty:
