Term used to refer to one who is the originator, or shaper of a given Creation. In its strictest sense, a creator is only one who brings forth their creation from nothingness. Thus the only true creator is Creator-Word-Spirit God.
This term was also specifically used to refer to one of the three personas of God, that persona more primal, linked with the originator of conception or the actual portion that was the conceiver. It was Creator in that sense who conceived all of creation, bringing into reality that conception which was then focused into reality through Word.
