You wouldn't put Athena on the list? She's ruling Olympus right now you realize...

Brahm may not be as directly worshipped as Vishnu & Shiva, but he equally dominates Hindu Theology & cosmology. He's invoked in many many prayers that are to the other aspects of the Tirmurti. Also I want to leave some question about the underlying nature of the Hindu Pantheon (there's a Heresy in my game amongst Angels of Dreams stationed near their domain & amongst Angels in general stationed in the Indian Sub-continent that the Trimurti are actually Celestial from the Higher Heavens who donned Ethereal Vessels much in the same way that Angels of the Lowest Heaven don Corporeal Vessels).
