Ath Creator, or just Ath, is the personification of the primal force behind all life. Ath is never strongly anthropomorphized in the story, but this being created the greater drakes in the First Age, and the Paravians in the Second Age. According to the author, Ath is a term "for a concept that is not human-centric. These concepts were not brought in by the Fellowship, or by Man, but would reflect to some degree human effort to ascribe meaning to what cannot be defined in a linear fashion."
