The Royal Caravan
If The Creators could be considered "gods" then the Idols are minor gods. The Idols are powerful entities which are born from the combination of the chaotic magic of Urth and the divine power of the Creators.
Almost every Idol has a related Creator, known as its "kin." An Idol's "kin" is the Creator whose magic helped form the idol. While some Idols have an allegiance to their "kin," most have no such allegiance or even despise them.
