Primal inevitables were the first inevitables produced by axiomites, and are the most powerful and authoritative among their kind.[1] They are living forges who create lesser inevitables that serve their strict interpretations and enforcement of cosmic law.[2]

Habitat and ecology

Guided by the same Godmind as their axiomite creators, primal inevitables serve and protect Axis and its residents[3] against the entropy of chaos by targeting emerging cosmic threats. Their numbers are limited, dwindling, and unreplenishing — the lore to create them is so ancient that it has been lost to the axiomites, each destruction is permanent — and all other inevitables work to protect them.[1] Little more than a quarter of all primal inevitables remain in the wake of this eternal conflict.[4] Many of the destroyed primal inevitables are memorialized in inscriptions around Axis, although some have been forgotten entirely.[5]

They live in bastions within Axis, and when not working, inevitables of all kinds congregate around these homes.[1]

As demigods

Each unique primal inevitable has become so powerful that they have ascended to become demigods, and have mortal worshipers.[1][6][7][4]

These mortal worshipers often appreciate the meditative precision of primal inevitables, though they rarely attract paladins due to their ambivalence between the moral spectrum of good and evil.[7]

Bailiff sects

While mortal worshipers of monitors typically refer to themselves as proctors, worshipers of primal inevitables refer to themselves as "bailiffs".[7][8] The primal inevitables who foster bailiff sects of mortal worshipers do so to leverage the redundancies in having multiple active groups.[8]

Bailiff sects model the laws and order of Axis in the Material Plane, putting them in relentless opposition with anarchists, criminals, the corrupt, and radicals. They pursue these goals through the pursuit of mathematics, accounting, and legal studies, fields that often also bring them considerable wealth that many (at least, those who do not themselves succumb to corruption) re-invest into their communities. They readily work alongside local law enforcement, but take special joy in helping inevitables pursue cosmic disorder.[8]

On Golarion, these sects are most common in Egorian, Cheliax; Kerse, Druma; and Sothis, Osirion.[8]
