No, they were always one. And always apart. Very odd, very complex.

The Jaggenmire is an entity worshiped in Southern Scadrian religion. It consists of two entities that are always both separate and the same. It is made up of Herr (Ruin), and his sister/wife Frue (Preservation). Herr can make things go, and Frue can make things stop. However, neither can create life on their own.[1]

It is believed by the Southern Scadrians that their former kings, now called the Fallen, offended the Jaggenmire, which caused the event known to Southern Scadrians as the Ice Death.[1]
