Where is God, if he's alive? And why doesn't he speak anymore? At the beginning of the world, God walked in the Garden and spoke with Adam and Eve. Then he began to withdraw, and he forbade Moses to look at his face. Later, in the time of Daniel, he was aged--he was the Ancient of Days. Where is he now? Is he still alive, at some inconceivable age, decrepit and demented, unable to think or act or speak and unable to die, a rotten husk?


The Authority was the first angel to condense out of Dust. He falsely declared to the angels who were born after him that he was God, and was worshiped as such. His domain would then spread across many worlds throughout the multiverse, and in each of them he was believed to be the creator of the Universe. As time passed The Authority eventually began to age and weaken, and so he ceased to make direct contact with the other angels and his mortal subjects, instead selecting the human Enoch and transforming him into the Archangel Metatron, to act as his Regent.

However, as he aged still, The Ancient of Days was betrayed by Metatron, who stole all his remaining power and imprisoned him in a crystal sphere where he could never truly die. For thousands of years he remained trapped, aging but never truly dying. He would eventually be granted death when William Parry cut his crystal prison open with the Subtle Blade Æsahættr.
