Aakriti the Evershifting is a deity of oozekind, creation, change, and unknown potential. They are suspected to be a primordial pupal deity whose development was arrested at an early stage.1


Aakriti's origins are unknown, though several scholarly theories suggest they were a primordial deity, perhaps one who was damaged while forming and made incapable of fully maturing into its final manifestation.1

Appearance and emissaries

Aakriti, who rarely appears to mortals, resembles an oobleck of perpetually changing state, form, and color who takes numerous forms similar to insectoid larvae, pupa, or butterflies. New forms of life spawn from Aakriti's being, often explosively, unpredictably, and colorfully.1


The Evershifting recognizes life as a constant transition between different states of being and celebrates the inflection points of such transitions. Even when such transitions destroy one's identity, Aakriti sees infinite potential within nothingness.1

Conversely, rigidity, inflexibility, and aversion to change all are counter to Aakriti's dogma, and the Evershifting sometimes intervenes against those who entrap others into different forms without their consent.

Worshipers and clergy

Aakriti has few followers in the Inner Sea region, most of whom are either Desnans or Oenopionian alchemists. Their faith has spread mainly through bardic worshipers who travel on adventures.1

Temples and shrines

The Evershifting's nature resists permanent temples or shrines. Most physical places of worship are small, portable, and made of inherently malleable or ephemeral materials such as decomposable clay and paper.1
