The Longest Journey Edit
"You had...prophecies to fulfill, you had...a purpose. Bringing...my children together...in preparation... This was important. And for that, I...thank you." - Old God
The Old God dwells in a chasm at the bottom of the Great Sea in Arcadia. He is worshipped by the Maerum as a "god who fell from the sky", and, according to the murals in the Maerum's abandoned temple, is the member of the Draic Kin who brought the Maerum and Alatien to Earth.
The Old God is the largest of the Kin: we never see him in his entirety, but his eye alone is as large as April is tall, and his titanic form breaks the surface of the water when he takes her to the Dark People. He offers April a great deal of useful information, including the location of the singularity that leads to the Guardian's Realm. He also mentions the 'Day of Ascension', when the Draic Kin will return home, but doesn't elaborate, saying only that it will not be for a long time and not everything is ready yet. He answers April's question of 'Who am I?' by telling her that her journey began with an answer, and it is only now that she knows the question.
Although he is worshipped by the Maerum, the Old God is also served by the mysterious, seafaring Dark People, ordering them to prepare a Star Map for April and to take her to Marcuria. It seems likely that the Old God is the most senior of the Kin, as he commands authority and is clearly possessed of powerful magic, but his only interest now seems to be resting until the Day of Ascension.
Ten years after April's journey, something has begun hunting the Draic Kin: an enemy that is "not mortal" according to the White Dragon reborn. The Old God has apparently fallen victim to it, because she cannot hear him any more. This does not seem to have affected the Dark People, and their Library remains a sanctuary, but April is surprised and unnerved to hear this news.
However, there is no evidence that the Blue of the Kin is actually dead. According to the White Dragon, he has only "gone silent".
