A godling is a mortal granted divine powers through a deity's direct intervention, whether by being the deity's direct descendant, powerfully blessed by the deity as a child, or granted mythic power by the deity itself.1

Divine entities who take physical form and visit the Material Plane sometimes couple with mortals or otherwise immaculately create life within a mortal. The result goes beyond the forms of similar bloodlines and offspring, such as cambions and empyreans, to create a child with unique traits and mythic potential.1

One example of a godling is Nivi Rhombodazzle, who became one by trading a gem with Torag.2
