Gathelik Pantheon


Gathelik Pantheon

The Gathelik people worship three trinitarian deities. They each are responsible for various aspects of their culture and the world. Because of this, many of their symbols include trinitarian aspects such as triangle knotwork. A public Gathelik shrine typically includes altars to all three deities which would each include each of the three aspects. An idol might only depict one particular aspect of one particular deity.

Because of their trinitarian religion they find the number 3 to be quite auspicious. People outside the culture believe the Gathelik people are superstitious about this but any Gathelik person will tell you that from their experience great good and great will happen in threes. Almost all Gathelik, believer or not, have habituated behaviors that incorporate the number three. They will check a lock three times, count their coins thrice, and will even count the people in a room or check the date before signing a contract. If it's some how connected or divisible by three, it is seen as n auspicious date or number.
