The most ancient of the See’ers’ deities were once lost, but now thanks to their hidden temples, they have been found.
The Pangool themselves may range in shape, size, and appearance. Their appearance can be as varied as the humans that populate the world. The biggest difference between them is that there is essentially two types of Pangool, ancient ones created by Ro’og himself or the ascended souls of great See’er heroes.
The bulk of Pangool make up the ascended souls, however the most powerful among them are the ancient and original ones.
The Pangool of Discipline and Rationale is one of the most common invocates used due to its tactical possibilities. Through Engolum, a Celestial Shield gains an unnatural like hardiness. The skin hardens and a sure grip is all but ensured on anything the shield grabs. A clear sense of calm washes over the Celestial Shield, making them any calm wall in the storm. When things are tough and its time to dig down and find grit, Engolum is the one they call.
The Pangool Mindiss is seen across the Kingdom of See’er as a protector. She protects the country some harm within and out, and the Shields expect that when they invoke her. This forms a protective bubble around the user that can be moved at will. This is most often used by Celestial Shields to protect vulnerable people during battle, escorts, or other activities. This is one of the shortest duration Invocations available to shields, lasting a few minutes at a time, but its uses are worth the cost.
While Celestial Shields are about protection, there is always a time when justice is needed, or vengeance doled out. Invoking the Pangool of justice and vengeance, Takhar makes it capable of returning the punishment taken by victims under its watchful eye. This allows the Celestial Shield to deflect or even reflect damage back to the assailant. In some cases, the user may even be able to return damage already taken if strong enough. Some Primes are even said to be able to transfer wounds from a victim back onto the one responsible.
