Bio:

Sophos is an old Aeolian deity and reigns over the realm of Hesperus, the resting place of the dead. Sophos is the counterpart to Apheleia, deity of life and fertility, who rules over Phosphorus, where newborn souls come from.

A famous Aeolian Ascetic, called Theoainos, once speculated that both Phosphorus and Hesperus where the same realm and the fallen, gone in the dusk of death, would be reborn in a new dawn of birth. However, his ideas never gained any traction, for how could both be the same thing if they so clearly carry different names?
