Trismegis the Prodigy REG

LoreEdit

All sources, regardless of when they were recorded, describe Trismegis as "continuing to perform research in a venerable estate deep in the mountains." Astonishingly, no matter how much time has passed, she has not changed, and possibly never will. She is the original alchemist, a genius who mastered the god-like technique of creating form from nothingness. Even now, with her three-fold intellect, she continues to refine her skill.

Name originEdit

Hermes Trismegistus (Ancient Greek "the thrice-greatest Hermes", "the great-great", "the greatest-great") is the purported author of the Hermetic Corpus, a series of sacred texts that are the basis of Hermeticism. The name given by the Greeks to the Egyptian god Thoth or Tehuti, the god of wisdom, learning, and literature. To some extent identified with the Grecian Hermes: various mystical, religious, philosophical, astrological, and alchemical writings were ascribed to him. Both Thoth and Hermes were gods of writing and of magic in their respective cultures. Thus, the Greek god of interpretive communication was combined with the Egyptian god of wisdom as a patron of astrology and alchemy. In addition, both gods were psychopomps, guiding souls to the afterlife.
