I just thinking about Illyria from Angel television show. I believe there are a few of these beings in real life, defunct gods in human bodies.
I am curious and interested in finding them. I don’t want to summon some spirit or whatever. I want to marry one and carry on gaining godhood by being with a real god (even a defunct one) in this lifetime. One I can form a bond with in this lifetime, into the other one.
Illyria is one of the legendary Old Ones, original pure demons from the Primordium Age who ruled territory including modern-day California. She was one of the most feared of all the Old Ones, and ruled from her citadel, Vahla ha’nesh, which corresponds to modern-day Los Angeles. Illyria was eventually defeated and murdered by her many rivals.
Illyria in her true form, standing before her demon army.
Illyria was loved and feared as few of the Old Ones were, so much so she still had followers and acolytes in the modern day. When the Old Ones lost their claim over this world, Illyria’s essence was placed in a stone sarcophagus, her powers drained and placed in jewels embedded on her coffin. Her sarcophagus was placed in a mystical graveyard known as The Deeper Well along with the coffins of other Old Ones. A warrior of good and his army were assigned to guard the Deeper Well to prevent anyone from extracting one of the coffins, as Old Ones are capable of resurrection. In the 20th century, the Keeper of the Deeper Well was Drogyn the Battlebrand.
Before falling, Illyria planned her resurrection. She hid her temple in a different time plane, rendering it completely intangible, until she could return to open the gateway and enter it. Illyria’s army was placed there as well, waiting to be raised once again by its leader. In the passing centuries, the army was destroyed, leaving only dust in its place.
