I decided to make this respect thread for Highfather as I have never seen a detail one for any version of the character.

Origin:

Izaya is the firstborn of the Old God Yuga Khan, living as a mud-grubber alongside his wife Avia and his brother Uxas, constantly suffering the abuse of the all-mighty deities who paid little attention to their devout worshippers. Uxas grew resentful of the cruelty of the Old Gods they worshiped, so he started a war between them that destroyed most of the pantheon. As Uxas became Darkseid by draining the rest of the Old Gods' divine powers. Izaya carried off his dying wife, by chance; Izaya came across the Skyfather of the Old Gods and begged him to protect them. However, Skyfather, like all of his brethren, was nearly dead. The deity transformed Izaya into the New God Highfather, who sought to end his brother's rampage. He hoped that together, as New Gods, they could use their powers to restore their broken world together, but Darkseid refused. They fought for seven days and nights which destroyed the surface of the planet.
