Coeus, an earth titan, fought alongside the primordials in the Creation War. His divine makings started on Bal-Kriav with the slaves of Varelay. It spread after idols and scrolls were found in Mughakh-Gol. The scrolls spoke of Coeus as someone who looks out for the disadvantaged. The idols, holding the spirits of trapped earth elementals, proved useful in the mines and work with stone. Unable to stop the spread of his religion, Vareley encouraged it as a tool to keep the slaves in check. Some of the priests of Coeus were agents working on behalf of Varelay's demon masters. For Coeus, the victor of these opposing interests would be his true worshipers; such thinking set Coeus on the path of evil, doing whatever it takes to garner worship.

In 2612 LE, Coeus's worshipers were suffering under the yoke of Varelay. Seeking freedom, thousands pledged eternal allegiance to Coeus if he would but help in defeating Varelay's slave masters. In possession of an ancient relic called the Irata Phelgas, the freedom fighters opened a rift to the world of Dol Vahdin. Aware of the situation, Varelay's master put in play a counter operation. As Coeus came through, the rift was brought down by a sphere of arcane. This vessel of arcane energy caused a massive explosion, sending Coeus back to his home world with serious injuries, and creating a perpetually smoking canyon named Toth Coeus.

The Church of Coeus, centered on the Ba'lith Empire fell in the Coeus Civil War (1694 - 1697). A year into this war, on 30 Dreamer 1695, Coeus was slain by the soon to be emperor of Ba'lith. This usurper, Raxcvillibus Dumu-loc, took a number of Coeus's things; some to be used in crafting weapons and armor at Tas'dvr Mout, and Coeus's blood used in the forging Adarmînal. Coeus's hammer Drogrorn, became Rax's second most prized weapon.
