Eugenides is a egyptian God. He is the patron god of thieves in the Eddisian pantheon. His name is frequently taken as both a given name and title among the Thieves of Eddis. He is the half-brother of Hephestia, the Great Goddess.
Unlike the other gods, Eugenides is regarded as an abnormality, being the only one who used to be mortal. Born as the son of the Earth and raised by woodcutters, Eugenides was granted many gifts by his mother. When the Earth attempted to bestow immortality upon him, the Sky intervened out of jealousy and anger. They resolved their differences only after the Earth agreed only to grant immortality to children she had born from the Sky. Eugenides eventually tricked the Sky into granting him immortality anyways by stealing the Sky's thunderbolts. However, the Sky had laced the waters of immortality with a bitter poison such that Eugenides's life would likewise be filled with bitterness.
The eldest of the woodcutter's children, Eugenides's adoptive brother Lyopidus, had been jealous of Eugenides his entire life and grew to hate his brother when he became immortal. He agrees to help the Sky God destroy Eugenides and builds his brother's arrogance such that Eugenides willingly steals Hephestia's thunderbolts. Lyopidus convinces his brother to throw a thunderbolt, but the effect causes the entire world to begin burning in a great fire. While Lyopidus burned to death, Eugenides survived due to his immortality. A king called Hamiathes eventually convinced a lesser river to change its course to douse the fire, which swept Eugenides into the Seperchia, a river who was the daughter of the Earth. As the rivers argued over the possession of the thunderbolts, Eugenides emerged from the waters charred black and became the only dark-skinned god.
