Known also as the Mother of Vaerya, Heart of the World, Queen of Life, and Lady of the Forest. Yaviandawe reveres everything that grows. She is a nurturer and healer, and loves most seeing beautiful creations bloom. She is fiercely defensive when it comes to her forests, and often if humans kill too many trees in one place, the forest will defend itself. this is a manifestation of her will. She is the patron saint of mothers, healers, and druids. She is often represented as a wise woman, with graying brown hair and clothes that are reminiscent of bark. Her green eyes are full of life, and those who would seek to destroy will feel her wrath.
Druids and all nature lovers flock to natural shrines of Yaviandawe. Dire animals and other perversions of nature bring down her wrath, as do undead. Elementals are often suspected of working as her direct agents.
Clergy and Temples
This pantheon of seven gods and goddesses is known at least to some extent all over the world. The gods are referred to as 'The Vaeryans', and they are credited with the creation of Vaerya. The seven are defenders of good, and are forever at war with Kaiten the Fallen and the dragon gods. As the proverbial 'Earth Mother' and god of nature, Yaviandawe's place among the seven is to the left of Illunian in traditional representation. Temples to the Seven can be found all over the world, ranging from elaborate citadels of worship to tiny shrines in the remote places of the world.
