Since the Age of Destiny, the people of Osirion have worshiped their own local gods, in addition to those deities venerated throughout the Inner Sea region. They were most popular during the early days of Osirion, but their faith waned as the Osirian people gradually turned to the worship of foreign deities. During the Age of Enthronement, the Osirian gods, while continuing to guide Osirion from afar, retreated from Golarion and turned their attention towards the distant land of Kemet. When Osirion was under Keleshite rule, the foreign overlords sought to eradicate the faith in the indigenous gods, but they remain a part of the history of Osirion's land and people, and with the restoration of native Osirian rule, interest in these ancient divinities has been rekindled.[1][2]
