Cernunnos is one of the most ancient and widely revered gods across all pantheons, a figure of incredible power and mystery even millenia after the culture that chiefly worshiped him was destroyed. The Horned God possesses the secrets of the universe, and knows all things, past, present, and future; he understands the weave of the great tapestry of Fate as few even among the gods can boast to do, and manipulates it like an artist. He is also a god of the earth, an ancient patron of the deep forests and the bounty of the hunt; he is the embodiment of all things natural and untouched by the hand of man, and the knowledge that they possess. Few among the gods seek him out despite the vast wealth of unknown knowledge he possesses; such understanding is too great for many to bear, and the spectre of madness awaits many who allow him to show them the unthinkable foundations of the universe through the cracks of reality.

Cernunnos and Zeus

Though Taranis often claims sovereignty over the Nemetondevos, it is Cernunnos they look to for spiritual leadership, and thus his failure to predict or prevent the destruction of the Gaulish culture at the hands of Rome and the Theoi has always been something of a mystery. The inscrutable god himself says nothing about it except in riddles and enigmatic non sequiturs, and to the untrained eye might seem almost to be unconcerned with the entire affair. However, the Nemetondevos whisper among themselves that Cernunnos, possessor of hidden knowledge, has only been waiting for the moment when the universe is perfectly aligned, and that because of this it is he and his possible revenge that Zeus most fears among all the gods.
