Void Spirit minimap icon.png Inai, the Void Spirit
Not even the other spirits claim to understand the mind and machinations of the eldest amongst them, Inai the Void Spirit. Privy to secrets that would shatter a mortal mind, the Void Spirit observes the workings of the universe from an unknowable vantage, choosing to let carefully groomed servants do his bidding -- only emerging from his Hidden Temple into the material plane when he deems that he alone can steer the course of reality along its proper path.

With an expansive perspective on existence, Inai is focused intently on a point in time beyond which he cannot see, when the fabrics of multiple realities are fated to collide. Now he steps from the aether to personally resolve the battle of the Ancients and prepare his allies for what he views as a greater conflict to come.

Inai is the first of the celestials, representing the void.[1] He is one of the Hidden Ones, and resides in the Hidden Temple, only emerging to take part in the battle of the Ancients on the mortal plane.[2][3] Still, he is able to create tears in the Astral Plane, allowing him to traverse through and damage everything in his path.[4] He instructs others, such as Lanaya, to do his bidding, all while remaining hidden to all but a few.[5][6]

Now that he has stepped into the mortal realm, Inai seeks to unite with all the other celestials in an event he calls the Great Confluence.[7][8]

Temple[edit]

After taking mortal form long ago, Inai constructed a temple to house his body and his artifacts.[9] This likely refers to the Hidden Temple. The temple is hard to find for all except those he permits to come across it.[10]

Mireska's Father spent much of his gold trying to find the temple, to no avail.[11]

Relationships[edit]

Lanaya is one of few mortals who was allowed to see the Hidden Temple and enter it. She now does Inai's bidding in exchange for secrets.[12] Mercurial also serves Inai, but does not always follow his instructions.[13]

Inai has great respect for the Korumite monks, who were scholars that studied both martial and magical arts.[14] He laments that almost nobody remembers who they were.[15] His temple is constructed base on a Korumite design.[16]

The Monks of Turstarkuri follow Inai's teachings, although Inai says they misunderstood his meaning, and were consumed by their folly when they were destroyed by the legions of the Dead God.[17][18]

Sensing Earthshaker's troubles that began when he received a chunk of his sister earth, Inai offers him answers.[19]

The elementalist Thunderkeg stumbled across a spell to summon the celestial Raijin, without knowing that the spell had been planted for him to discover by Inai.[20]

Inai once sought out Barathrum's Master for unknown reasons.[21]

Others[edit]

Inai is familiar with the Echo Sabre icon.png Echo Sabre, having held it once before.[22] He dislikes being in the mortal plane, but finds mortals amusing.[23]
