“Then I am but your humble servant, I suppose,” Starr grinned, as the other guy announced himself to be a fire god. “Any particular one?” he queried, eyes raking up and down the boy's costume. He guessed the axes were some kind of relevant iconography but he couldn't place it. One came across so many different belief systems, some mish-mashed together from several disparate areas, that it was hard to keep track.

He was fairly sure that people didn't dress as obscure gods if they weren't at least a little bit spiritual, so this guy had to at least be kind of aware of the Other Side, otherwise he would most likely have been like... a skeleton, or just brought a bloodied prop weapon. This was different, and therefore cool.
