Ka, the Great Wheel of Being is a godly force that is mentioned as the polar opposite to Buer, the Black Wheel of Decay. He is one of the most powerful creatures to ever exist, although he is only truly powerful as long as he is within the Hyperverse; his total strength falls substantially whenever he exits his realm, yet he still remains quite powerful.
In this user's fanon, Ka is rumored to be the ancestor of all good. He is also sometimes called "The Grand Starwheel".
Ka is one of the two "Wheels" that turns throughout all universes and dimensions, the other being Buer. If one were to fall, then so would the other, as mentioned in this old saying;
"Even though light abhors darkness, and darkness abhors light, they cannot exist without each other. They are the two sides to the coin of our existence."
After Celestial opened up the gateways into both the Hyperverse and the Putriverse, Ka, as well as Buer, showed him the true amount of power he held over the endless expanse surrounding him, and they tutored him in the concepts of light and darkness, life and death, and much more.
After "numerous eons under the concept known as 'time'", Celestial decided it was time for him to bring sustenance to his domain. He had learned of the great differences between the two opposing beings Ka and Buer, and what they represented. Learning of the two extremes the Hyperverse and Putriverse represented, Celestial attempted to create a "perfect" universe, where these two opposing forces came together in unity. Unfortunately, even he could not fully understand the two contrasting extremes, which reacted violently to each other. The reaction brought forth many other numerous strange and surprising essences to Celestial's domain. In addition, the energy Celestial originally controlled had been split apart into the Light and Darkness. With these two energies throughout the budding universe, Ka and Buer were both able to access this realm; and finally bring their fight into direct conflict.
In a fury unfitting of his gentle nature, the Great Wheel attacked Buer. The Black Wheel's power evenly matched that of Ka's, however, and the two gods consistently stale-mated each other as they fought. Neither refused to give in, however, and Celestial could only watch in horror as his mentors destroyed much of what he created, fearful of their power. However, the continuous destruction soon forced the fear to give way to rage, and he acted. Facing both of them, Celestial used his control of the realm to defeat and subdue the grand beings, who were at a disadvantage outside of their respective home realms. With both Ka and Buer forced to listen, Celestial made it clear that he would not allow their war to destroy his home. However, he could not remove their influence from his realm without leaving it as the void it was before. As such, Celestial demanded a ceasefire within his realm: Light and Darkness would be equal within his realm, neither having too great an influence compared to the other. If either made a grab for control at too great a scale, Celestial would put a stop to it. With Celestial's advantage over them within his home realm, Ka and Buer were forced to agree. With that decided, Celestial made another astonishing decision: he would not personally oversee his own realm's evolution. Instead, he would play the role of a simple observer, allowing the worlds to grow as it itself deemed fit, in the hopes that even he could learn from the lifeforms that would come to be.
Ka and Buer then returned to their home realms. The Great Wheel was indeed surprised by Celestial's decision to merely observe his growing universe, but he was also pleased, feeling he had taught his pupil well. On the other hand, Buer's hatred for his counterpart grew fierce, and his respect for his former student had withered...
"The ten major elements of the universe are Fire, Ice, Water, Electricity, Wind, Earth, Light, Darkness, Nature and Poison. It was decreed that an Avatar be positioned over each element, to rule and govern it; Fiamme, Kyanos, Neso, Haeos, Khazri, Temblor, Celeritas, Voidstar, Mokuhana and Dantamu.
These 10 Avatars created four deities each.
Out of these four deities each, two were male and two were female.
From Fiamme came the Great Fire Deities; Agni, Jacawitz, Berylsythe and Gabieta.
From Kyanos came the Great Ice Deities; Rahab, Telchur, Chraden and Durga.
From Haeos came the Great Thunder Deities; Perkunas, Xevioso, Radigast and Narukami.
From Khazri came the Great Wind Deities; Latobias, Saranyu, Stribog and Theia.
From Temblor came the Great Earth Deities; Sumugan, Etugen, Trodarche and Sephazer.
From Celeritas came the Great Light Deities; Endovelicus, Hathor, Malakbel and Austerine.
From Voidstar came the Great Dark Deities; Erebos, Nyx, Vorhaten and Aglibol.
From Mokuhana came the Great Nature Deities; Ninsar, Sucellos, Druantia and Fenthald.
From Dantamu came the Great Poison Deities; Kharnarax, Ghede, Obaluaye and Feriluce."
The 3 Heralds of Death
In reality, Ka's size is infinite, but he is ethereal and invisible in this state. Whenever he manifests himself as a visible, physical being, he is roughly 100 feet long. His true form (or as he is depicted) is a serpentine creature with six massive, feathered wings extending from his body, curved, golden horn-like structures extending from his head, and a long mane that flows like fire running down his back to the tip of his tail, as well as numerous rune-like markings covering his body.
Like Buer, he has a disguised appearance; in this, he is a tall, anthropomorphic creature, still with six feathered wings, the golden "horns" and the long, fire-like mane that runs down his back and extends to the tip of his tail.
Servants of Ka
- Please ask if you want your character to be a servant of Ka.
- The Elemental Gods -
- The 3 Heralds of Death -
- The White Cherouvs -
- Doomtress the Hedgehog - Due to hoping Ka might be able to help her and that she wants to add her power to the forces of good.
Being an Overlord God, Ka is immensely powerful, but even he is not invincible. His strength is matched with Buer. This means that it is impossible for one to triumph over the other. His true strength is only realized so long as he is within the Hyperverse; while outside of it, his total power drops substantially.
Apart from his Omnimancy, he is also capable of flight and telekinetic abilities.
He is fairly resistant to the Light element.
He takes more damage from Dark-aligned moves than moves of any other alignment.

Ka is a generally peaceful being. He greatly dislikes war and violence, and prefers to talk things out if at all possible. He confesses that he often desires to go to the Middleverse (also known as the Neutral Realm) to try and stop conflicts there, but out of respect for his former student, he stays out of the troubles that occur on Mobius. This doesn't stop him from assuming his disguised form and traveling to Mobius anyways, to act as a simple observer, and see how life goes on the planet.
Despite his peaceful disposition, his anger is terrible to behold. The mere mention of Buer will quickly rouse irritation in him, and, when he was finally able to be in full contact with the Black Wheel, he did not hesitate to attack him. Anyone who tries to harm his many "children" (while they were not biologically created, he still considers them as such) will face his divine wrath.
- The fact that he has six wings and a mane of "fire" is meant to allude to the Biblical seraphim, who have six wings. Their name also means "burning ones".
