@Steadfast: Your notions hold a few holes in them.
1) Not all of the Six Gods are destructive, and as the kodan themselves will preach, not all destructive habits are against balance. Balance is the co-existence of good and evil, not the sole existence of good. The Six Gods as a whole actually personify balance perfectly. Dwayna, Melandru, and Lyssa are beneficiaries - particularly the former two - while Balthazar, Dhuum, and Abaddon are rather harsher; when Grenth takes over, he is among the harsher of gods, though less so than Dhuum, and Kormir has been taken to be used for justice and thus also holds a harsher side to her (punishing evil), though she's a greatly brighter side than Abaddon which somewhat offsets the former balance.
2) If the theory that the great storm
was indeed caused by Jormag, the kodan were hiding from the Elder Dragons, probably unaware of what was causing the many-decade blizzard, and not yet on sanctuaries.
3) Abaddon holds no ties to balance or any of Koda's titles. And the Voices are still in contact with Koda. Abaddon being dead, means that if Abaddon and Koda were one in the same, then they couldn't converse with Koda in modern times. The Rage of Koda is a symptom of stress mixed in with contact of the Mists. It's basically a mental breakdown that got amplified due to their connections. I would imagine this can also happen to havrouns in norn culture, given that they are also tied to the Mists via their Spirit of the Wild.
Something to note about Koda's titles in relation to the Six Gods - something I noted since the get go: He is called "the Ancient One, Founder of the Earth, Keeper of the Sky" in the blog post. The Six Gods are, by the forgotten, called the Ancient Ones. Melandru terraformed (parts of) the world, and Dwayna is the goddess of air. As such, I'd be willing to argue that Koda is instead a personification of both Melandru and Dwayna.
However, should the great storm be from when the Elder Dragons rose, this would then mean the Six Gods knew of the world Tyria long before they arrived - before the Elder Dragons previously rose, even. If so, then koda cannot be Dwayna, Melandru, nor Abaddon. So an alternative possibility - if there's even a connection between Koda and the Six Gods - would be that Koda was Melandru's predecessor. Why Melandru?"When she saw destruction, she brought creation. Where she saw anger, she grew love. With this, Melandru prepared for a future she knew would be troubled."

In other words, Melandru was bringing balance to the world.
Onto Zhaitan: The lasers and cannons used to kill Zhaitan are specially designed based off of both Snaff's and Kudu's research on the Elder Dragons and their draconic energies - probably with a bit of Gorr's theories as well. As a member of the Order of Whispers, for retaking Claw Island there's an option to go with Gorr to create an anti-Elder Dragon device. The cannons likely derived from that, empowered by Snaff and Kudu's research that Zojja obtained. It was said Zojja herself upgraded them and the lasers, after all.
In other words, those "handful of heroes and airships" were specifically designed and equipped with weapons that were also specifically designed to kill an Elder Dragon. And that's ignoring the fact that they've been starving Zhaitan for who knows how long the Orr invasion took, weakening Zhaitan day by day.
Zhaitan is dead, however, per the explorable mode dungeon's tokens:A small piece of Zhaitan, forever dead.

Except in this case, Almighty Koda is judge, jury, and executioner. As the highest source of morality and enlightenment, Koda is the definition of good. Thus, whatever benefits Koda must be the most "correct" thing to do, and that includes forcefully correcting the other races.
Koda is never called jury and executioner. And your take is very Knight Templar
and not kodan like at all.
One of the Kodan goes EXTERMINATE. EXTERMINATE if you spam F near him )
If you're actually serious with this, I think you were spamming F so much you became delusional.
how could an architect be unaware of the house he built?
Last time I checked, the person who built the building I'm living in doesn't know diddly squat about what I have inside or do inside it. Hell, he might even be dead, I don't know how old this building is.
Poor example. Koda simply has to not be present. I do not believe there's any claim that Koda is omnipresent, let alone omnipotent or omnibenevolent (or hell, even just simply benevolent). I mean, hell, they don't even credit Koda as having made the world either! Just that he was a god at the beginning of time. That he was simply present
as the world formed.
Details on what we know are very fishy because, quite frankly, we only know two paragraphs worth on Koda. Give or take. And you're making a lot of assumptions, relating Koda to be taken as the same as the Abrahamic God. Just because both faiths are monotheistic doesn't mean the gods are treated the same.
