The Ones of Mortis Respect Thread

First off, I'm aware that the Internet already has some of these. However, they mostly only refer to the Ones in total, or each of the Ones has independent respect threads. I'm attempting to make a combined respect thread that reflects them in totality, as well as them all individually, but all in one thread. This is a tie-in to my Abeloth respect thread, and she is a character that will be mentioned several times in this thread so check out her thread if you're interested in this or if you would like to see the power level of Force users comparable to the Ones. All GIFs from MakeaGIF.com are credited to WollfMyth209. I claim credit for everything else.

Having said that, respect the Ones:

"A family in balance—the light and the dark. Day with night. Destruction replaced by creation."

Power

The Father claims that he and his children can wield the Force like no other:

The Ones are unspeakably powerful Force-users whom are said to be god-like Force wielders:

During the Clone Wars, an immense monolith appeared in the Chrelythiumn system, broadcasting an ancient Jedi distress code. Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano investigated the kilometers-wide artifact, and were drawn into a paradise realm inhabited by unspeakably powerful Force-wielders. These god-like beings were locked in an eternal struggle for dominance, which made Mortis the fulcrum of the entire galaxy and the Force.

The Ones retreated to Mortis to avoid ruining the galaxy with their Force powers:

"My children and I can manipulate the Force like no other. Therefore, it was necessary to withdraw from the temporal world and live here as anchorites."

"As a sanctuary?"

"And a prison. You cannot imagine what pain it is to have such love for your children… and realize that they could tear the very fabric of our universe."

The Father

Respect the Father:

"You have a very simple view of the Universe. I am neither Sith nor Jedi. I am much more, and so are you."

Power

The Father is the most powerful Force-user in history, according to Leland Chee:

https://twitter.com/HolocronKeeper/status/352618406517809153

The Father is implied to have beaten Abeloth, as she had already seemingly defeated the Daughter and the Son, and the Father left her stranded on the world afterwards:

The third panel depicted the arcade complex again, this time with a much-changed Abeloth standing in the heart of a stormy courtyard. Her hair had grown coarse and long, her nose had flattened until it was practically gone, and her sparkling eyes had grown so sunken and dark that all that could be seen of them were the twinkles. She was raising her arms toward a cowering Daughter and a glowering Son, with long tentacles lashing from where her fingers should have been. Stepping forward to shield them was a furious Father, one hand pointing toward the swamp at the open end of the temple, the other reaching out to intercept her tentacled fingers.

The Father maintained the balance between the Son and Daughter, two immensely powerful Force users:

The Father lifts Abeloth out of the Pool of Knowledge:

In the second panel, a much younger-looking Abeloth swam in the Pool of Knowledge, looking sly and defiant as she smiled up at the Father, who stood at the edge of the basin. His hands were raised and extended toward Abeloth, as though he were using the Force to pull her from the pool, and his expression was as sorrowful as it was angry.

The Fanged God

The Son is worshiped as the Fanged God of Nightsister myth:

The Fanged God appears as a night-black gargoyle in the spirit realm. He governs virility and the hunt. he also communicates smells, sounds and tastes. he is the counterpart to the Winged Goddess and is equally important to the governance of the spirit realm. As Nightsisters, you draw from both pools and thus keep universal energies in balance.

The magic of the Ganged God is so powerful that channeling it can burst minor blood vessels in our physical bodies, raising telltale bruises on the cheeks and around the eyes. These marks were once considered scars of shame by the passive witches who revered the Book of Law. Yet they are brands of honor. Our tradition of facial tattooing reclaims this history for ourselves and announces to the galaxy that we are Nightsisters. And while our Nightbrothers are kept separated, they are marked as our kin and our warriors by the tattooing on their chests and faces.

It is the Fanged God who conjures up the Wild Hunt each year, when the moons are at their brightest and the snows have vanished from the slopes of the Shattered Ridge. I have seen the dark figures with glowing pale eyes as they gallop through the forest. I have heard their hunt-calls as they carry those who cross in their path back to the abode of the ethereal riders.

The Fanged God is close to you at all times. He seeps through the borders separating the two realms and does not require as much effort to channel. Every time you fight or feat or bleed, you are communing with the Fanged God.

As girls you learned to speak with our planet's native rancors and to ride them. The realm beyond shadows contains a single ur-spirit for each of the galaxy's animal species. And just as you did with rancors, so can you do with the ur-spirits. Once you acquire the tongue of a particular ur-spirit, you can understand any creature of that type. Once you can communicate with the creature, you can calm it. Once you can can calm it, you can control it. The most skilled Nightsisters who study this art hold the title of beastwarden.

Because the Fanged God governs the hunt, he is present during tracking, sacrifice, and the drinking of blood. he can sharpen your perceptions to set you on the path of the most elusive prey even when you are far from Dathomir. It is he who gifts us with the blood trail, a technique in which you place a drop of your own blood on your target and use that link to track your quarry across the stars. It is a technique known only to the Nightsisters.

The Winged Goddess

The Daughter is worshiped as the Winged Goddess of Nightsister myth:

In the spirit realm, the Winged Goddess appears as a blinding-white gryphon. It is she who governs fertility and growth, and she who acts as a mediator to reconcile wounded parties. She knows everything that has occurred and everything that is yet to come.

Channeling the Winged Goddess brings forth great quantities of spirit ichor into the physical realm. This ichor appears as green smoke, but it can be given physical shape and mass as well as be manipulated in spellcasting by a gifted shaman such as myself.

A skilled shaman may conjure objects from raw spirit ichor. The conjured object is everlasting and can take many forms such as a hunting lance or a goblet of boiled blackroot. Divination and scrying are achieved by shaping the spirit ichor into a sphere and peering into its depths. Through scrying, a shaman can view events occurring anywhere int he galaxy. Divination or heartshadow, calls forth visions of possible futures. Through this art, I have learned the fall of empires yet to come and how to protect the Nightsisters from those who would seek to exploit us.

In spellcasting, spirit ichor can become the waters of life and be used to heal wounds or restore memories. When used in conjunction with crafters chanting incantations, I can channel the ichor to rejuvenate the near-dead by coaxing the injured spirit to emerge from hibernation.

Mesmerism is another gift provided by the spirit ichor. This power allows a shaman to override the thoughts of those weaker than oneself - particularly men and offworlders. A tap of the fingertip to the victim's head will induce a trancelike state and make the victim powerless to refuse your commands.

Another form of control is achieved by crafting a small statue of the victim, combining a strand of hair and a roiling caldron brimming with the waters of life. The crude figure may then be stabbed with wooden needles or weakened with a breath of miasma. Any harm done to the totem will be felt by the victim it resembles. But nothing comes without a cost. The effort required of the shaman to summon such quantities of ichor can prove exhausting.

I do not wish to disturb the Winged Goddess with endless supplications, but in times of severe distress, I have used the shaman's connection to directly inooke the spirits. When the call succeeds, the specters of long-ago warriors will glow into view. Heralded by a rush of wind, they will charge a target while uttering a shriek that emanates from every direction at once.
