Ze is a deity found and mentioned in AwaKen: Descent Into Slumber. He is said to have various powers over dreams.
According to game lore, Ze is the absolute being that rules Ardor. He founded the Mangus Knights after the appearance of Awaken and the Dreamspawn, and after the founding of the Mangus Knights he has been hidden in seclusion, with almost no sign of his existence to be found. He is the polar opposite to Awaken, Lord of Nightmares.
Ze cannot be directly encountered in AwaKen: Descent Into Slumber, but he can send messages to his followers. He rules a heavenly realm, though if it exists in the same place as Ardor is unknown.
Ze came to the realm where Ardor would be created, taking with him the spirits of man. However, he was engaged in battle by Awaken, who sought to take the spirits of man back to the world Ze took them from. Ze was triumphant, and created Ardor. As time passed, he noticed humanity was growing too numerous for life on Ardor alone. In the infinite, but empty realm he rules, he had only created Ardor. To appease the need for growth, he began construction of a new world, hoping to ease the needs of his people.
However, Awaken appeared once more, and besieged the world of Ardor, destroying half of the world in an instant. Unlike before, Ze only barely managed to stop Awaken, and in his despair, had to cease building the new world, which became the Moon. He then constructed the Mangus Knights, to allow man to protect themselves, and then departed to his celestial realm, to begin a slow process to restore the wounded world, and has not been seen since that day. He wages war with Awaken's spirit continuously still.
