Godling

From PathfinderWiki
See also: Ascension, Demigod, and Deity

A godling is a mortal granted divine powers through a deity's direct intervention, whether by being the deity's direct descendant, powerfully blessed by the deity as a child, or granted mythic power by the deity itself.[1]

Divine entities who take physical form and visit the Material Plane sometimes couple with mortals or otherwise immaculately create life within a mortal. The result goes beyond the forms of similar bloodlines and offspring, such as tieflings and aasimars, to create a child with unique traits and mythic potential.[1]

One example of a godling is Nivi Rhombodazzle, who became one by trading a gem with Torag.[2]
