"The Twelve" are twelve benevolent deities of Eorzea who ruled the continent and its surrounding islands until the arrival of wandering tribes. Impressed by the resilience of the primitive settlers, each of the Twelve mercifully saw fit to ensure their welfare.

So those of us who have have gone through the character creation process have had to pick one of twelve guardian deities to align our avatar with. It's kind of like picking your own zodiac sign in a way. I found this part of the process very interesting and was wondering who and why you guys picked the guardian you did. Let's discuss!

I'm not going to list the info from all 12 guardians here, but here is a link to the list: http://www.eorzeapedia.com/wiki/en/Category:Deities

I chose for my character Byregot, the 7th. Here is the game's description of'em:

Byregot is the purveyor of architecture and industry and god of the arts. He commands the element of Lightning and is associated with the seventh moon of the Eorzean calendar. Byregot is the elder brother of Halone, and pupil of Thaliak. He is most often depicted as ardent smith with a two-headed hammer. His symbol is the hand.

I guess anyone who knows me in some capacity can see why I chose him. As a artist and designer in real life his profile rung closest to my personality and background. I like that his symbol is the hand and that his name sounds strong and bold. He's also the elder of two siblings just like I am.

This is an interesting thing to throw into an MMO. Reminds me of choosing your birth sign on TES games.

Does it affect your character stats/growth in any meaningful way?
