The Clan Diwata originates from seven progenitors: the twins Ikapati and Kanluran Lupa, Mapulon Puon, Bathala Hari, Silangan Alapaap, and the sisters Lakapati and Sinukuan. They are tight-lipped about their parentage, although it is known that, at least for Bathala, Lakapati, and Sinukuan, they were part of the clans of Tel'Ajin and subsequently the larger Tel lineage. However, none of the seven were of noble blood; in fact, it has been assumed that they were of mixed ancestry when the southern peoples began to intermarry with the immigrant Tel nobles.

Their bid for leadership began when they took up the ownership of estates in the lands of Tel'Ajin. Conflicts with the incumbent Tel nobility drove Clan Diwata out of Tel completely. The salvation of the family came when one of its scions, Adlao Diwata, found his way to the shores of the Hawks. To the north was the slumbered merchant realm of A'lam Al-jinn, and he began to establish a new home there.

Soon, the rest of the Clan followed Adlao to their prospective new home. This included Bituon Diwata, direct female descendant of Sinukuan and titular Chief. A rivalry between the two cousins simmered as they slowly brought A'lam Al-jinn under the Clan's leadership, but it was resolved when their children were united in marriage: Dalikamata, daughter of Bituon, and Kan-Laon, son of Adlao.

Thus, through a series of marriages between their descendants, the lands of the seven were eventually united into one inheritance and name: Diwata.
