The gods of the world of Hökaland do exist and they evolved in a similar fashion to human beings or other mortal races. There is a pantheon of gods where a large portion of humans (just about all humans in the Realms) consider Rahn to be the most important and the Church of Rahn is the main religion through monolatrism. Rahn is among others known as the creator of human kind. Naturally, what the gods do and feel doesn't always translate into mortal-made religions.
The Nature of Gods
Among the other sentient races, there are a couple of Elven gods, the Krohdin and the Halfling Godess. However, the gods themselves are not overly concerned with human lives. Some like to meddle, and some like to study the cosmos itself further, or to unweave the fabric of reality. In any case, they are as kind, malicious, horny, hungry, jealous and every other attribute we can put on humans. These entities just happen to live on a different plane of reality, wield a lot more power to control their environments and a wider mind.
In tandem with evolving complexity of the neural pathways of animalia on the world later known as Hökaland. It took on some aspects of life, and brought some back on to life. Some the people later called gods, others things like fey or spirits.
Souls are the magical lattice to life. The more complicated the life is, the more complicated lettuce, and the better manifestation after the biological life ebbs out.
Gods are families and the child of a union will will retain attributes from both parents but often takes attributes from one of the families specifically. In some cases they instead create entirely new families, The Dawn Spirits are testament to that.
