Aenryia

[ay-ENN-ree-ah] Epithets: The Lady of the Lake, The Shining Knight Heroic Virtues: Prowess, Justice, Defense, Nobility Major Access: Light, Summer, Water Minor Access: Earth, Spring Goddess of righteous knights, honorable nobles, and justice, Aenryia is the goddess most venerated by the Briton people of Brittanis, though due to the difficulty of pronouncing her name for some, she has been known simply as The Lady of the Lake or just The Lady for hundreds of years. She is a patron of nobles who seek to use their power wisely, magistrates, and paladins; The Lady sponsors many knightly orders, the Knight Protectors and Ordo Argentum the most prominent. She is a valorous and honorable combatant, seeking evil out in its lair and vanquishing it without fear. She delights in battle but does not tolerate treachery or trickery nor does she tolerate it in her worshipers The Lady was once deceived by the Archdemon Lavaynis into believing her first husband Ghorn to be evil and she ceased their relationship. When the deception was discovered, an undying hatred was born between Aenryia and Lavaynis which lasts with no loss of fury to this day. Much later, Aenryia fell in love and married Arturian. She has two children; the eldest is Emrys, fathered by Ghorn the Godsmith and her younger child is Liriel the goddess of healing and beauty. Aenryia's favored weapon is the longsword. Her symbol is a silver sword vertical on a shield of grey, with a sunburst behind the hilt; a variation of this symbol is a swordblade with a lightning bolt as the crossguard. Her sponsored Character Values are Prowess, Justice, Defense, and Nobility. A silver dragon-head on a shield of blue, as well as a stylized pair of dragon wings usually seen as a tattoo or painted marking— while these are symbols related to Aenryia, they actually belong to her Archon Segreth. Many stories surround Segreth and his service to The Lady— some call him a mortal knight who rode a silver dragon into battle, while other stories claim that Segreth was the first paladin and that he ascended to demigodhood because Aenryia was loath to let such a might soul pass on. Regardless, Segreth served Aenryia as her strong right hand, a general indivine conflict and messenger to devout heroes. Several knightly orders exist,s ome devoted to Aenryia directly and others to Segreth as icon of knightly perfection. Aenryia's specialty priest class is the Questing Knight.
