The spirits that grant their might to the Primal power source are believed to have arisen from the deaths of the Primordials during the Dawn War. These powerful entities are mysterious and strange, embroiled in unfathomable games and power struggles with one another that affect the mortal world and beyond.
A vividly green serpent with gold and silver highlights, Father Morning rules the East from a palace of pale green jade roofed with red tiles. Father Morning pits himself against Mother Dusk, and is associated with the Feywild courts of Spring. His son is Pale Sun, who courts Little Moon.
A vast blue bird with a black breast twinkling with tiny stars, King Sky is the Lord Above, the ruler of the Cloud Heavens. King Sky is said to see all that happens on the surface of the world, and those who crave divination often beseech him.
Depicted as a huge golden lion with a mane of red flames, Lord Noon is the King of the South.

A slender woman robed and veiled in purple and violet, Mother Dusk carries a little silver bell to warn of her approach. She is the old enemy of Father Morning, directing her subterfuge and intrigue from her sandstone palace behind the East Wind. The Autumn Courts of the Feywild call her an ally, and she has great influence in the Shadowfell as well, especially among the Shadar Kai.
Appearing variously as a rat, bee, ant, mouse, or other small creature bearing a lit candle, One-of-Many is the messenger of the spirits.
