Ptah is sometimes referred to as the Master of Two Ways. He is considered the most skilled monk psionicists in all of the universe. He blends the powers of the two together making them seem like they are one art.

In the Dawn Era, a group of Lith-Crillion and a neutralized primordial, built the first voidship from a living organism. This team of scientists was led by Anubis, Hades, Ptah, and Set. The group considered Ptah the smartest and disciplined, yet blamed him for their slow progress. After the Âni-Zandân passed its flight tests, Bruh Kreniik decided it was time to put the four to more important tasks. They were raised to 5th Rank Angels, then sent off to help and lead armies under the god Bal-Kriav.

In the Creation War, Ptah's great intelligence, said to be unmatched, was put to aiding the Covenant face enormous primordials and their powerful weapons. He stayed busy in the rear, creating many magical items and fantastic devices like the flying fortress Tiwa'erra.

The gulgar of Bimothak are an ancient humanoid race that once served the dao of Granitoid. Thousands of years ago, they came to Bal-Kriav by way of a gateway opened to them by Ptah. He saved the gulgar from the dao and at the same time gained a toehold on Bal-Kriav.

Ptah usually appears as a humanoid donned in intricately carved crystalline armor. This armor is entirely made from Shards of Tiwa'erra, and is thought to be the first such armor made with this crystal. Ptah's robe is always moving as if flowing in the wind - he would tell you the solar wind, but most couldn't even conceive of such a thing. What is even more remarkable is that the robes look like a slither of the Void, with stars and galaxies always moving across its surface. Periodically, a shooting star will appear in this moving image, shaped in a Supernal rune of Life, Force, or Travel.

Ptah is a powerful psionicist-monk. Long have monks and psionicists prayed to him for guidance. He is sometimes referred to as the "Opener of the Ways" or "Voids Overmind". He is prayed to for safe journeys, particularly by those traveling the Void.

The Deep Six claim that Ptah lives in a region of the Void called Deep Mist. Most theologians contest this legend, knowing that the Rule of Divine Governance restricts the Mortal Systems to all but a few Higher Powers.
