”She was a woman. Good at lying, they are. The God Beyond made'm that way.
The God Beyond or the Unknown God is a god that is worshiped on multiple Shardworlds. It is a belief in a greater God of the universe beyond entities like Shards. It is unknown what relationship the God Beyond has to Adonalsium or to the Beyond.
Mentions of the religion
- On Roshar, Hoid refers to the God Beyond in a parable while talking with Shallan. Dalinar also casually mentions the God Beyond while talking to Kaladin.
- On Sel, it is referred to as the Unknown God by the MaiPon, although this is indeed the same as the God Beyond. Wan ShaiLu prays to the unknown god, and her people relate it to the rocks that fell from the sky. Additionally, in a scene from the perspective of Hoid at the back of the Elantris Tenth Anniversary Edition, Hoid refers to the Unknown God in passing.
- The relation between the Beyond and the God Beyond, like most questions about the Beyond, is currently RAFO'd.
