Ianthe, Goddess of Life
Realm: Preservation of the sentient races of Caspia.
Typical Appearence: Ianthe's most commonly seen form is that of a young
humanoid woman with large feathered wings and long golden hair that
reaches her feet. She wears a white robe that is tied with a golden rope.
Represented by: Gardens and ponds, small pools of natural water.
Followers: Ianthe's children, as her followers are called, tend to choose
careers that help, heal, or bless fellow adventerures. They are quick to
forgive and are full of compassion. However, they have been known to be
the hardest fighting and the deadliest when it comes to a cause that
directly affects those under their care: the other citizens of their home
town or city.
Commentary: Once the world had been created and the time came for it to be
populated, Ianthe took a piece of Baeron's earth and a burning coal from
Edorin's flame and breathed her life into them, thus creating the Hobbit
race. Sturdy and filled with vigor, the Hobbits pay tribute to the Goddess
creator by living each day to the fullest. Now Ianthe grants her blessing
to all the races of Caspia who choose to follow the way of peace and life.
Her saintly nature makes her a welcome light in the darkness of the land.
Ianthe's symbol is a shining orb with a burning white spiral within.
A true follower of Ianthe will possess a saintly soul.
