”These islands were sacred, the trappers their priests.
Each Island has a name and personality associated with it. The islands are considered the Eelakin's gods. Patji is the ruler of the islands, also known as The Father. Trappers are trained on Sori and, once finished with their apprenticeship, choose an island to trap for the rest of their lives. They are considered priests of the island. With the exception of the island Sori, trappers tend not to visit the other islands.
These islands, unlike the Homeisles, are only inhabited by a small number of nomadic Eelakin trappers, estimated a few dozen, who maintain small hidden camps within the island.
The islands are host to a number of exotic species, one of which is a species of birds called Aviar who host a magical parasite that gives them unique powers. Most notable of these powers is the ability to conceal minds from predators that are able to locate creatures by sensing their minds.
The Pantheon is home to a very large number of extremely dangerous plants and animals. Most notable of these are Deepwalkers, leviathan-like beasts that live beneath the water and hunt the waters and shores of the islands. A large number of the animals hunt via detection of thoughts. Almost all plants and animals on Patji can kill swiftly. The smallest island, Sori, is apparently more forgiving, but is still dangerous.
- The largest of the islands, and the ruler of the pantheon. Aviar must travel there to have their talent bestowed.
- The smallest of the islands, and closest to the homeisles, she is loved and protected by all the islands. She is used as a training ground for Eelakin trappers.
