Making a 'God' relatable?
Ok now this may be a bit of an odd one but here we go.
Basically the main characters in my novel are the eight Paladin, surviving Gods of the Dawn War. Each is the ruler of their own slice of reality and you have a range of characters within them. Like 2 twisted demonic siblings, the loyal and sort of empty reaper, and the main god 'Wrath' who is in short just a really nice guy to his people but can easily switch into a force to be reckoned with. He finds the finer things in life beautiful but can also relish in battle.
The trouble I am having is that these are all fairly removed and divine from what we would consider 'relatable'. But I really need the audience to feel close to Wrath and a few of the others.
Anyone got any tips for tugging heart strings with the reader?
