The Vagaries of Unity
Known as the Titan of unity, Rod is an expert of grouping things; ‘mother’, ‘father’ and ‘child’ are first and foremost a family, a multitude of families make up a community a multitude of which becomes a people and at last a nation. Each grouping serves to simplify the World and bring the World closer to being just one single thing, and that one single thing is Rod. In Rod’s own eyes, in the beginning there was only Rod and everything that is today has broken away from him.
If it can be said that Greater Titans have such a thing as goals then Rod’s would be returning to a state of being in which everything is Rod.
Rod didn’t play a big role when the Gods warred against the Titans long ago. He was never imprisoned either, because he had no true form since his two primary avatars Svantevit and Triglav had split themselves forming half of the Slavic Pantheon. But He was there when the The Citizen was born out of the ideas given to Lenin, and those ideas suit Rod perfectly. The individual is insignificant compared to society. The group is more important than the unit.
As the Heroes have learned from Baba Yaga, his will is carried out in the world through corruption. Creating new minions to do his bidding would be impossible for him because Rod is already the whole, how do you create something outside the whole? Instead Rod seeks to influence what is already part of the whole. That’s why you have bad guys like his agents that work like a big hive to live up to the ideals of unity. Creatures that are touched by Rod work in groups and like to work as a single unit.
