The gods of the Special Region differ from any Earthly religion in that they are entities that are demonstrably extant, and capable of directly interacting with people within the Special Region by manipulating factors associated with their area. They tend to use these abilities to grant benefits to their followers associated with their area. For instance, Miritta grants her followers protection from death in childbirth, and its is possible that La & Elange grants a greater ability to learn and retain knowledge, given how quickly Lelei La Lelena is capable of learning the Japanese language and other information. Followers often include the first part of the name of their god as their middle name, as seen for Yao Haa Dushi who changed her name to Yao Ro Dushi after she switched from Hardy to Rory.

Little is known about the true nature of the gods of the Special Region save that, according to Rory, the gods are considered "the gardeners of the Special Region, that they can be considered a 'tree', where the deities 'cut the branches that have grown too big.'" They are capable of choosing people as apostles, who in return gain demigodhood and superhuman strength and durability. The gods of the Special Region do not appear to be capable of directly effecting the mortal realm as they no longer possess physical bodies unless they choose to take the bodies of their followers which would ultimately destroy most of the followers' minds who cannot cope with the divine possession.

Apostles of the gods are capable of ascending to to godhood after a period of service, which would usually last for about a thousand years, and take on a role in the pantheon of the Special Region. It is not known how many of the gods of the Special Region were once human apostles who ascended to divinity. However, it is known that Wareharun is a forest of sapient trees that literally evolved to the point of obtaining godlike power, suggesting some of the deities may in fact be humanoid lifeforms which have reached a pinnacle of evolution.

The gods, with the exception of Hardy who resides in the Underworld, live in their own realm called Heaven. It is religiously believed that Heaven is a province that is literally located above the clouds but this is proven to be a fallacy as it is confirmed by Rory that this is not the case.

According to Rory, it is apocalyptic prophesied that tens, hundreds of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of millions of years later, the gods will leave and humans will vanish from the Special Region. At that point the fog of the void will swallow the world and return it to primal chaos. The name of the fog is called the Apocryph.

Furthermore, the Gods of the Special Region knows how the world operates in which can be explained through science like the the Earth circles around the Sun. However, they let the mortal world figures out for themselves.

The Gods of the Special Region is bound by their planet in which if the planet where the Special Region is located is destroyed. The Gods will perish. Furthermore, it is known that the Gods cannot escape to another planet. As the result, most of the Gods in the Special Region amazes to find that people from Earth can travel through space in which they can escape their extinction in the future.

Unlike Earth, the Special Region doesn't have multiple gods for a specific aspects since there are no multiple mythologies in Special Region. Therefore, Apostle and Gods from Special Region finds it is strange that Earth has multiple deities for one specific aspect (Hades, Yama and Anubis are gods of the underworld). Some gods even call this phenomenon messy.

Despite their seemly benevolent nature, they are actually very tyrannical to mortal since it is revealed that they responsible for the stagnation in technology and science in the Special Region since they realize that mortal can outclass them with their scientific research about how the world and nature works. As the result, they will try everything to prevent mortal in the Special Region to develop further in understanding about knowledge and science through death threat or inciting worshipers to lynch researchers who has potential to discovery revolutionary things to improve the daily life of the people in the Special Region. The prime example is that Hardy threats Lelei with death threat if she tries to practice or sharing her knowledge about her improved magic from her research on Earth science. However, despite the circumstances, they still allow mortals like sage or mages in Rondel to research and understand science and nature as long as it doesn't create or discovery anything they consider to be revolutionary. The opening of the Gate to the technologically advanced Earth also makes their justification stronger since Hardy, Emroy as well as La and Elange mockingly states that Earth Gods like Zeus, Athena or Amaterasu are fools who let mortal surpass them due to the highly advancement of Earth world with significant technologies that can be considered as playing god like cloning or space travel.

When the action of the gods in keeping technological stagnation in the Special Region becomes well-known after the Imperial Civil War, its infuriates most intellectual mages and researchers in Rondel, especially Lelei, Cato and Mimoza, since they cannot pursue their intellectual pursuit freely to advance the Special Region in scientific knowledge and understanding causing Lelei and most of the mages in Rondel to disown most of the gods. Furthermore, it is also cause Pina and others officials in the Empire to revile them since it makes the Empire and the Special Region to be always and forever at the mercy to any kinds of technological superior and powerful force comes from the world beyond the Gate like the JSDF or the Arachnid.
