It may be just a gameplay/lore discrepancy, but I do think it's something to consider.
I think you are really tapping into the power of the three gods, considering the summon guardian still works, the constellation still works. After all the whole point of forgotten gods is the fact that the gods run on faith. Korvaak can come back as long as people believe in him. Why can't it be the same for Empyrion?

I don't like this too much. I went to Attendant to listen what he says about the three... and what he says about Dreeg (and his voice) is nowhere near what we hear at the end of FG. That voice is "godly", calm and clear. Dreeg's voice is supposed to be incoherent, mad, impossible to understand for mortals.

I don't have better option, but I still don't like this one.

If you talked with Draellus, than he mentioned about balance a few times.

that voice at the end sounds so out of place imo. Would have expected an apparition or a cameo or something but nothing

That'd be Alice, Katrine and Aldritch's baby daughter. If your character has already spoken to Katrine in Port Valbury (I think that's the only requirement) they'll mention the identity of the baby themselves.

I am curious as to who Ateph is and why does it's spawn serve Bysmiel so willingly. If Ateph is in anyway associate with Korvaak then it's spawn should be hard to tame like the Duskreaper. Heck, Bysmiel's cult didn't even want to tame the latter for the sole reason that could be associated with Korvaak

I noticed someone mention Apesh to be a God before the forum reset. Can someone point me towards the lore note that indicates the same?

I wonder what is Omintrix, an Eldritch being doing in a Chthonian Rift.

You posted about that before the forum rollback, and I dunno what that creature you referred is! I don't even know how to access that area. Is it maybe related to a Dreeg quest? I have only done Bysmiel and Solael so far. Though the name Omintrix seems remarkably familiar to Ben 10's Omnitrix.

As for Ateph, he was likely one of the hero-gods like Rahn, so more of a powerful mortal than a real god. Most likely his power was in summoning, and as Bysmiel took that part of the Eldritch Realm's power from Korvaak, his pet was easier to control? That's my take of the matter anyway.
The Duskreaper, yeah, that is a strange thing that they don't want to control it. Interesting that despite being a Scorpius, it is not an Insectoid but an Eldritch being.
Also man, encountering that thing with Dravis and Harraxis in a cramped Shattered Realm boss room? Not much fun at all.

EDIT: Ah I remember now, the name was Onarix, and it was a giant Sandclaw. I assume it just wandered into the rift somehow. In general I think the lore notes and even the bounties hint at how Korvaak has influence over the beasts like Sandclaws, Gryphons, Scarabs, and I assume those that heed his call eventually become Eldritch from Beast.
Given that Sandclaws live in packs and have hierarchy, maybe that one wandered into a Chthonic rift and just asserted dominance over the creatures in there?
Or it is an error and it was supposed to be Chthonic originally.

Ominitrix or whatever is the Raptor Thingie found in a Chthonic Rift outside Vanguard of the Three. Killing it and bringing it's heart to Solael is a quest you get in Vanguard of the Three.

Also yes it's weird the Duskreaper is not classified as an insectoid.

Yes I looked it up, Onarix. I just edited my post above before it showed your response, I remember now.

I just take them and run off.
