NO TOCAR

Cegorach, también conocido como El Dios Que Ríe, el Gran Arlequín, el Gran Bufón, y el Primer Bufón, es uno de los dioses de la mitología Eldar, y la figura central de la creencia de los Arlequines Eldar. Mientras que la mayoría de los Dioses Eldar fueron destruidos durante la Caída de los Eldar, de acuerdo con la leyenda, esta deidad sobrevivió debido a que su naturaleza burlona lo distanció de la corrupción psíquica colectiva y la decadencia del ancestral Imperio Eldar, que creó al Dios del Caos Slaanesh. Cegorach es la única autoridad que los Arlequines reconocen. También es uno de los únicos tres Dioses Eldar que sobrevivieron a la Caída; siendo los otros dos Isha, quien se encuentra atrapada en el Jardín de Nurgle, en el Reino del Caos dentro de la Disformidad, y el Dios de la Guerra Kaela Mensha Khaine, que vive a través de los Avatares en el Circuito de Infinidad de los Mundos Astronave Eldar. Se dice que durante la lucha entre Slaanesh y Khaine, Cegorach se escondió detras de Khaine para protegerse, y durante la batalla, huyó a la Telaraña, donde Slaanesh no lo pudo encontrar. Todavía reside allí, y es el único ser en el universo que sabe a dónde conduce cada puerta de la Telaraña.

Historia

Cegorach es el dios Eldar del engaño, del sigilo, de la creatividad, del arte y de la astucia. It was he who tricked the Outsider into eating other C'tan according to Eldar legend during the War in Heaven between the Old Ones and the C'tan millions of years ago. Those Eldar who follow him, known as the Harlequins, are protected from Slaanesh in a different way from their Craftworld brethren. While Craftworld Eldar wear Spirit Stones which absorb their souls when they die to prevent them from being devoured by Slaanesh in the Warp, the Eldar Harlequins are directly protected by their faith in their God's power, becoming one with his Warp emanation upon their death. The only exception to this are the Harlequin Solitaires whose souls must be won from Slaanesh after their deaths by the Laughing God.

The Laughing God should not be confused with the C'tan called the Deceiver. There are a pair of stories in Eldar Myythology about the Laughing God and the Deceiver which sometimes cause this confusion. In one, the Laughing God tricks the Outsider into eating many other C'tan, driving him insane. In the other, the Deceiver consumed several C'tan to increase his own power and convinced the Nightbringer and the Void Dragon to do likewise. Neither of these C'tan, nor the Deceiver, were driven insane.

There is a more obvious difference between the Laughing God and the Deceiver. The Laughing God was created by the collective psychic belief of the Eldar impacting the psychically reactive energies of the Immaterium, in the same way as were Kaela Mensha Khaine, Isha and the other Eldar Gods, and as such Cegorach is an entity of the Warp. This is supported by his ability to compete for Eldar souls with Slaanesh. The Deceiver is a C'tan, a Necron Star God, a sentient being whose natural environment lies at the core of stars in realspace. A C'tan is a creature purely of the material universe; it has no soul and thus no emanation in the Warp. The mysteries of the Immaterium are beyond the comprehension of the C'tan, who find the energies of the Warp to be inimical to their existence and are thus extremely vulnerable to the use of all psychic powers.
