Gilean was called from the Beyond by the High God, from out of Time, raising him to godly stature as companion and brother to Paladine and Takhisis. One myth surrounding his legend states that a mortal scribe would be taken out of time to become Gilean, which some surmise to be Astinus of Palanthas.
Gilean has only one child, the goddess Lunitari who sprang fully formed from him. The other neutral gods are those that he gathered to him from the Beyond, who aid in the order of Creation.
Gilean's clerics act as scribes, librarians, and historians. No cleric of Gilean may ever destroy a book, no matter the contents.
Other names: The Gate of Souls, the Sage, Void, the Book, the Gray Voyager, Gilona (Taladas), Xilon (Nordmaar), Graylord (Imperial League).
