Each character is described regarding his or her (or its) major mythological stories and theological concerns (things the figure is "god of").
This is only meant to be an introduction, a concise reference. In this respect, it exceeds amazingly.
As the book carries on, Day often leaves much of his geneaologies to be assumed, and in this sense they are not always best for reference. The book lacks a quailty introduction, which should more thoroughly elucidate the religious culture of the ancient world (which is reference within the work, assuming that the reader is familiar with sacrifice and cult worship).
