The Issanic Creation Myth refers to the polytheistic religion of the Issan Kingdom and some of the Halarian Empire. It involves the Levels of Creation, and the "circle of life".
Levels of Creation

- Helil (Insects)

- Eithel (Animals)
- Hadarel (Humans)

- Mariyel (Middle Gods)
- Amariyel (High Gods)
