We have generous gods. They use theft as a test of worthiness and let you keep what you steal. Then there are greedy gods, like the god of life.
A sqid's first theft is the theft of life. That god never rests until she gets her life back. Mostly though, our gods sit someplace in between.
When humans arrived on our planet, one of them mused we might treat them like gods. I think they were disappointed that we did.
