injurai Posted April 3, 2018 Share Posted April 3, 2018 Abydon is basically Prometheus, but his designed intent by the Engwithans was to protect progress. So it's not clear if he aids humans out of goodness, or duty. Humans evolved to procreate like any other organism, doesn't mean they don't genuinely fall in love with the people they're doing that sort of thing with. Just because he was designed to want to protect people doesn't mean it's no longer moral for him to do so. I'm not sure it's a meaningful distinction at all. I'm not sure if talking about wants and morals is necessarily the right framework. Maybe it is, it's not clear. The gods seem to have free-will and some interaction between each-other. They seem to be essentially powerful soul constructs that live in the same spiritual plane as everything else, but can bind to vessel or aspect. They certainly seem limited in their reach, disposition, function. They may do some things out of their own sense of morals, wanting to see their morals reflected in the world. But the god's actions and roles are ever shrouded by the fact they were purpose built. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
