Deities are divine immortal beings in the universe, having control over cosmic forces and influence over mortal beings.
There are various kinds of Gods and Goddesses with different origins. They vary in cultures in the way of style, character and ability. Most are perceived as all powerful, and benevolent.
Deities are the oldest and most powerful forces in existence and might be responsible for the creation of the universe itself. While the origins of divinity remains unknown, it is commonly believed that deities are a primordial race of species who have existed long before the universe was created and will continue to exist long after the universe is destroyed. While gods are depicted in a variety of forms, they are frequently portrayed as having a humanoid shape. However, some faiths and traditions consider it blasphemous to imagine a god as having any concrete form. Nevertheless, deities are believed to be immortal, and are thought to have ultimate knowledge, power and understanding over the universe and all things within it. Deities are also believed to have desires, emotions and intelligence that is comparable, but usually superior, to those of humans.

Main Article: God
God is the all-knowing, all-powerful Supreme Deity of the universe. God is the true Creator and Sustainer of the universe. Due to the fact that there are many denominations of various faiths and beliefs, there are many variations of God. However, it appears that in all forms of Abrahamic faiths, "God" is conceived as being an all-knowing and all-powerful deity who is both the creator and sustainer of the universe. While the name of this God remains unknown, in some faiths it is customary to refer to him with epithets. Many proponents of Abrahamic faiths also believe that God is transcendent, meaning that He exists outside of space and time and It is therefore not subject to anything within Its creation, but at the same time a personal God who listens to prayer and reacts to the actions of Its creatures. Contrary to most Pagan faiths whose beliefs are commonly rooted in polytheism, the Abrahamic God is mainly found in monotheistic religions, as It is taught to be the one and only Supreme Being. While God is arguably genderless, most mainstream religions, such as Christianity, depict God as male, while many new age religions, such as Wicca, depict God as female. While God is known to co-exist with various other gods from various pantheons of other cultures, God is believed to be the highest reigning deity of all time.
The Goddess Edit

The Goddess is a female deity who is commonly found and revered in Neopagan religions, especially Wicca. Contrary to Abrahamic religions, Wicca does not teach the Goddess as being separate from nature, but rather the "spirit" of nature that is intertwined within the fabric of the universe itself and is personally engaged with the web of all living things. According to Holly Cleary, the Goddess is is in fact God himself. She is the consort of the Wiccan Horned God.
Main Article: Dionysus
Dionysus is an ancient chaotic force who is found in various cultures, nations and religions all around the world. While many followers of ancient Greco-Roman religions know him by such names as "Dionysus" and "Bacchus", other cultures, such as those in Judeo-Christianity, know him by such names as "Devil" and "Satan". However, during a conversation with Daphne Landry, she implies that Dionysus is in fact Satan himself, referred that he has countless names and that "Bromios", "Dendrities" and "Enorches" are merely a few of his many titles.
