Cleverly Clover leader of clover colony, god of good fortune
Once a resident of the city of gods, Gemline, Cleverly never thought himself particularly endeared to the likes of mortals. He lived among his peers, questioning the world, driven by a boundless well of natural curiosity. Engulfed in wonder at the canvas laid bare before the gods, he marvelled at the tiny intricacies that the others neglected: the beauty inherent in a single, perfectly-formed blade of grass.
Though idealistic and cheerful, his tendency to push the boundaries of socially-acceptable: asking too many questions, always playing devil's advocate, and sticking his nose in everyone's business made him an ill-wanted friend. He found solace in Cogito, another reject, quickly becoming the other's best friend despite Cogito's stilted standoffishness and selfishness.
But all came crashing down when leader Narke, swiftly on the heels of a major conflict between several gods, decreed: the gods must abstain from the affairs of mortals, for fear of fracturing their tender peace further. Cleverly, struck by the unfairness of abandoning their charges, stood up against this ruling.
In return, he was struck down from Gemline and cast into the world of mortals, alone.
Through involvement with Clover Colony, he eventually ascended to leadership position, juggling politics and threats in an attempt to protect mortals from themselves. Though deeply lonely, he pushed forwards, trusting in his gut that someone had to stay behind and care for them - that leaving them to flounder was morally repugnant, after babying them for so long.
So separated from Gemline and the other gods, Cleverly was ignorant to the shifts in leadership until Cogito reappeared on his doorstep, begging for his return to Gemline.
