The Five is the name given to the five Gods of the Pentadrian faith. It is made up of Sheyr, King of Gods; Hrun, Giver of Life; Alor, the Warrior; Ranah, Goddess of the Moon; and Sraal, the Soul Trader.
Unlike their Circlian counterparts, the Circle, they are less willing to show themselves to their followers and are less interactive with how the faith is run by the Voices. The Circle tell the White that they were unaware of their presence, as the Circle were the only five to survive the War of the Gods. The White deduce that maybe the Five had come into existence after the war, and were new gods.
