The androgynous Speakers of the Depths are the creator-gods of the protean race whom scholars speculate to be something akin to a pair of conjoined gods or a single dualistic entity. Proteans describe them as being two perfect intertwined serpents, moving in and out of each other, constantly creating and devouring the world around them and themselves. Others consider the entity to be akin to the Maelstrom or the Cerulean Void.
Those who have seen manifestations of the Speakers of the Depths have each seen completely different things, but all the manifestations are disturbing and terrible, yet seemingly so difficult to describe to anyone else. Enemies of the proteans describe the most horrendous manifestations. Probably the chaos itself of the Maelstrom prevents any accurate and authoritative description of a highly mutable entity.
Speakers of the Depths are resident in the Maelstrom.
Keketar proteans are the racial priesthood for Speakers of the Depths. Their worshippers are rare and generally limited to proteans, who themselves rarely become clerics, and non-protean worshippers are even rarer.
