Paragus is the mysterious deity and creator of the minotaur race. Nearly all minotaurs revere him in some way, and most worship him exclusively. As a race, the Avlissian minotaurs are fairly ancient. They established themselves on various spots around the planet, with the most well-known place being in the northeastern part of Jechran. The main bulk of minotaur civilization is a theocracy paying homage to Paragus. Those who are not trained as fighters or servants often become his clerics. Most often it is the more intelligent minotaurs which choose this route as an outlet for their brilliance.

Paragus' beginnings are mysterious. It is known that he created the minotaur race, and has little interest outside of it. However, it is not known exactly where he came from. No Avlissian god claims his creation, and in fact Paragus is far older than any Avlissian god which was born during the Age of Peace, nor does any god remember giving him access to the planet.

Followers of other deities worry about this sometimes, because it has been whispered that Paragus may have been created by the Supreme himself, or perhaps by other unknown gods which were created by the Supreme. These mysteries are usually dismissed by clerics who stipulate that no other gods could exist within the same sphere as Avlis without the main gods knowing about it, or even allowing it. However, once in a while, there will be visitors from far off islands or continents that seem to disprove this fact. The argument rages in scholarly circles, but the gods are silent on the matter. It is a mystery known only to them.
