Yun-Yuuzhan, the Cosmic Lord, was the Creator God of the Yuuzhan Vong, and their chief deity.

Mythology

According to legend, Yun-Yuuzhan sacrificed his body parts to form the universe, the lesser gods, and the Yuuzhan Vong. In honor of his sacrifices, the Yuuzhan Vong in turn sacrificed body parts—and living beings—in remembrance of his act of creation. He was revered formally on the holiest days on the Yuuzhan Vong calendar; such dates were the occasions on which rites and sacrifices devoted to him were conducted.

Furthermore, according to the Yuuzhan Vong beliefs, the creator god contained all knowledge of the universe which he kept to himself. However, he was robbed of some of this information by Yun-Harla who in turn provided it to Yun-Ne'Shel and she gave it to the Yuuzhan Vong. Thus, the Shaper caste believed that knowledge was incapable of being created and that innovation was considered heresy.

The Yuuzhan Vong were named for him, and it was a sacrilege to simply refer to them as "Vong" (which many in the galaxy did). Only the Supreme Overlord of the Yuuzhan Vong could address him, and the Supreme Overlord was ritually scarred and modified to resemble Yun-Yuuzhan.

Yun-Yuuzhan may have been based on Yuuzhan'tar, the sentient homeworld of the Yuuzhan Vong. The Order of Yun-Yuuzhan were a religious body that were named after the Cosmic Lord.
