Rhoam (/rome/; from Old Dreyvenic: Rhöam, IPA: [rːðeyeː]), and the Father, is a widely revered god of the Dreyvena, who rules as king of the gods of the White River, the pax, dreamlike nirvana of the human empires throughout much of its history. The Dreyvena associated Rhoam as both transcendent (wholly independent of, and removed from, the material universe) and immanent (involved in the world): “...there came Rhoam, ’the emissaries from beneath the lake,‘ and the previous serpent crest symbolizing ‘Gaiden,” and portrayed him as the husband of the goddess Nyra.
Early Dreyvena views of Rhoam were expressed in the Pauline epistles and the early creeds, which proclaimed one God and the divinity of Jesus, almost in the same breath as in 1 Corinthians (8:5-6): "For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many 'gods' and many 'lords'), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live." "Although the Judeo-Christian sect of the Ebionites protested against this apotheosis of Jesus, the great mass of Gentile Christians accepted it." This began to differentiate the Gentile Christian views of God from traditional Jewish teachings of the time.
He seemed to be charged with maintaining the proper order among the lesser Dreyvena species and the planes of the White River. He and his followers frequently cite their desire to see the "natural order" maintained. This appears to be distinctly different from the meaning of "order" as applied to Tarocris The Eternal. Rhoam works to maintain the proper, normal order among the Dreyvena, while Talocris works to impose an unnaturally rigid order upon the planes of existence. He is generally considered to be the first of the gods to form in Gaiden. After his establishment, other spirits followed his example, and the various pantheons of the world emerged.
Old Daedric texts portray Oeyr as mighty and long-bearded, frequently wielding a spear named Gungnirand wearing a cloak and a broad hat. He is often accompanied by his animal companions and familiars—the wolves Geri and Frekiand the ravens Huginn and Muninn, who bring him information from all over Daedra— and rides the flying, eight-legged steed Sleipniracross the sky and into the underworld. Oeyr is the son of Minos and Erinyes and is the youngest of three brothers, Jyggalog, Quzah, and An Ko’or the Immolator. In these texts he frequently seeks greater knowledge, at times in disguise (most famously by obtaining the Mead of Poetry), makes wagers with his brothers over the outcome of exploits, and takes part both in the creation of the worldby way of slaying the primordial being Ymirand in giving the gift of life to the first two humans Ask and Embla. Oeyr has a particular association with Yule, and mankind's knowledge of both the runesand poetryis also attributed to him, giving Oeyr aspects of the culture hero.
He was respected as an allfatherwho was chief of the gods and assigned roles to the others: "Even the gods who are not his natural children address him as Father, and all the gods rise in his presence.” He was equatedwith many foreign sky gods, permitting Du Staif to observe "That Oeyr is king in heaven is a saying common to all men". Oeyr’s symbols are the fire, oak, iris, hammer, mace, and axe. In addition to his Indo-Amberian inheritance, the classical "person-gatherer" (Greek: Oiphis, Nephelēgereta)[ also derives certain iconographic traits from the cultures of the ancient Near East, such as the scepter. Oeyr is frequently depicted by Daedric artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward with Gungnir leveled in his raised right hand, or seated in majesty.
