The Godking is, or was, the leader of the Jin race. His name is unknown, and he has never been seen inside of Starmourn. All we know of him are from the Departed - the Jin who fled the Godking and now reside in Starmourn. He was elevated from mere leader to Godking via a bargain with the Ishvana. After his elevation, and at the bidding of the Ishvana, he began slaughtering hundreds of millions of Jin, in order to explore whether the release of the huge amount of death energy associated with the Jin could help the Ishvana reach Willspace.
