World of Trithos

Trithos takes place in a North America Native American world untouched by Europe. It is about people called thoses, who have abilities. There are three primary abilities. A thos is either an ethos, logos, pathos, ethlog, patheth, logpa, or trithos.

The Primary Thoses

Ethos

Form of Matter: Gas

Examples: Air, Fire

Those with ethos powers do the kind thing above the logical and self-serving thing. They consider many things sacred and not meant for human power over.

Logos

Form of Matter: Liquid

Examples: Blood, Lava, Water

Those with logos powers do the logical thing over the kind or self-serving thing. They are cold and calculating and personal relationships mean very little to them other than to serve a function. They don't mind spilling blood or lava, so long as it makes sense.

Pathos

Form of Matter: Solid

Examples: Stone, Wood, Ice

Those with pathos powers do the self-serving thing rather than the kind or logical thing. They are dark and gritty and fueled by the empitness(es) of fear, guilt, shame, and/ or grief. They will follow their voids and doubt the existence of ethos.

The Secondary Thoses

Ethlog

Forms of Matter: Gas and Liquid

Examples: Water Vapor (Clouds/ Steam/ Fog)

Those with ethlog try to find a balance between logos and ethos. They can be very noble, but sometimes detached without the solid tether of pathos.

Patheth

Forms of Matter: Gas and Solid

Examples: Smoke, Dust

Those with patheth try to find a balance between pathos and ethos. They have an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other. Many of the angel and demon debates are void of logic.

Logpa

Forms of Matter: Liquid and Solid

Examples: Sap, Sand, Mud

Those with logpa try to find a balance between pathos and logos. They have deep emotional wounds and are highly intelligent. They are cunning and opportunistic and don't consider much morally sacred.

Trithos

Forms of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas

Examples: All

Trithoses struggle with finding the balance between the three thoses as they have a connection to all three motivations. They are extremely rare.
