Along with Innos and Beliar, Adanos is one of the three principle deities of the Gothic universe. Unlike his brothers, Adanos has remained out of any serious conflict among the three. He has served as a mediator and proponent of balance between the two conflicting extremes of Innos (fire and light) and Beliar (darkness). His representatives in the world are the Water Mages as well as their servants and guardians; the Ring of Water. The Water Mages do not have the same political prominence and influence of their Fire Mage contemporaries, however they have been important players in the Gothic universe nonetheless.
