Overgods are the manifestations of the four prime Laws (Fate, Life, Destruction, and Death).
They never get involved in worldly matters and are the most powerful existences second only to an Universe Creator. They have set the rule that any Sovereign that destroys a Material Plane by entering it despite their incompatibility, will get destroyed.
It was later revealed that Overgods were conceptual beings without a shred of emotion, they are created by the Universe Creators to carry out their orders. Hongmeng for instance created overgods based on the 4 edicts he set up Life, Death, Fate and Destruction.
- Every so often they will issue an overgod missions and whoever completes the mission can make a request to the Overgod who issued it. (most ask for an Overgod artifact)
- Despite having strength and capability far beyond that of even Sovereigns, Overgods too are incomparably insignificant and unworthy of mention when compared to Universe Creators
