Deities, also known as Celestials, are race of immortal, all-powerful supernatural entities predating the dawn of all life in universe, with each being a prime authority in the pantheon that they established or belonged to.
Celestials are originated long before first witches comes to being, at least several million years ago. Like witches, they use magic to perform supernatural feats to impose their will, but on massive scale that only Grand Triskellion that can match their strength. Over time, they formed their own collective pantheons and religions amongst the humans, which attracted many followers across Midgard. However, over time, many of them lost at least a significant portion of their followers, as Thor mentioned to Akko and co. that the last time his kind (Norse Deities) worshipped by humanz was around medieval era and envied Shinto Deities who still have many followers in Japan.
Celestials are primordial entities whom physiology remained mystery. As stated before, they can perform magic to perform supernatural feats on greater scale than witches that only Grand Triskellion and Primordial Magic that can match their strength. At least in Jötunn's case, they possesses spherical core that serve as their vital organ.
Due to their immense powers and role in phanteon and beliefs among humans, celestials also prideful being who wanted humans to treat them with respect and take offensive to those who perceived them as aliens (though don't mind if referred as celetials). While some of them are benevolent and acting in accordance to the well being of humanity, some are evil or at least chaotic.
At least in case of Norse Deities, killing a celestial is possible, but very difficult.
Norse Deities are Celestials associated with Norse Belief and Mythology. They composed of 3 races; Aesir, Vanir, and Jötunn. Though they no longer have human followers, they have established friendship with witches in Midgard and willing to assist them if deemed necessary.
Norse Deities who connected to war, nobility and power. Hel, Máni, Sól, Thor, Forseti, and Odin are among them.
Odin, as stated above, is leader of a band of Celestials who visited Earth to warned Nine Olde Witches about Nidhoggr's true nature and even aid them in defeating the evil celestial's mutant wagandea form. Because Nidhoggr's core was too hard to be destroyed, Odin and Forseti cast it to Niflheim.
Forseti, alongside Odin, as stated above, are among friendly Celestials who visited Earth to warned Nine Olde Witches about Nidhoggr's true nature and even aid them in defeating the evil celestial's mutant wagandea form. Because Nidhoggr's core was too hard to be destroyed, he and Odin cast it to Niflheim.
Norse Deities who associated with fertility, wisdom and the ability to see the future.

Shinto Deities are deities who are associated to Japanese beliefs and religious traditions. Many of these are from Shinto, while others were imported via Buddhism or Taoism and "integrated" into Japanese mythology and folklore.
Notable Shinto DeitiesEdit
Commonly called Amaterasu, she is the goddess of the sun as well as the purported ancestress of the Imperial Household of Japan. Her full name means "Great Goddess" or "Great Spirit Who Shines in the Heavens"; she may also be referred to as Ōhiru-menomuchi-no-kami. For many reasons, one among them being her ties to the Imperial family, she is often considered (though not officially) to be the "primary god" of Shinto.
The former member of Order of Kitsune Amaterasu the Gumiho is named after this deity.
The god or goddess of rice and fertility. Their messengers and symbolic animal are foxes. They are often identified with the Ukanomitama and Buddhist deity Dakiniten.
Akko's ninjato, Inari, is named after this deity.
Izanagi (伊弊諾 or 伊邪那岐) The forefather of the gods, he is the first male as well as the god of creation and life. He and his wife, Izanami, were responsible for the birth of the islands of Japan and many kami, though she died in childbirth. Later, after his failed attempt to retrieve her from the underworld, he sired Amaterasu, Susanoo and Tsukuyomi.
Izanagi also believed to be creator of Dragon Lines, source of magic utilized by various onmyoji across Japan.
Alternately romanized as Susano-o, Susa-no-o, and Susanowo. Reportedly called "Futsushi". He is the god of storms as well as in some cases the god of the sea. He is also somewhat of a trickster god, as Japanese mythology extensively documents the "sibling rivalry" between him and Amaterasu. Susanoo also was responsible for the slaying of the monster Yamata no Orochi and the subsequent discovery of the sacred sword Kusanagi.
Order of Kitsune's Susanoo Project is named after this deity.
