"Eu" happens to be the Prydaen
word for "nature" -- and thus, as a deity, Eu is
the entirety of the natural world, far beyond the scope of
mortal apprehension. Eu is never referred to as He, She or
It -- always as Eu -- and never appears to mortals.
Eu's symbol, the Faiyka, is a disc of white gold which bears
three narrow rays in bas relief.
Eu-Demrris-Tenemlor symbol: Triquetra
Anyone claiming to have seen Eu is actually referring to
the triple form, Eu-Demrris-Tenemlor... whose name is frequently
shortened to Eu. This can be confusing for outsiders, but
the Prydaen have no trouble keeping it straight.
Eu-Demrris-Tenemlor represents the totality of mortal experience.
He (or she) appears mainly to clan elders and priests -- or
their non-Prydaen equivalents -- in the form of a renowned
ancestor. His appearance to a younger person is usually an
indication that they are destined for great things.
His symbol, the Triquetra, is a triple knot that can vary
in form as much as the god himself.
Demrris symbol: Iladza
Demrris is the lord of the sun and of storms, of life, vigor
and action. Prydaen Barbarians
and Warrior Mages are among
his most fervent followers.
His fur is dark and bristly, and his stature is small --
just the right size for joining in the games of playful cubs,
one of his favorite pastimes.
He has a very strong sense of justice, and will react swiftly
and without warning against any evil that he sees. However,
his attention span is brief, and he does not pursue enemies
relentlessly as Rutilor
His symbol, the Iladza, is a disc of yellow gold bearing
a multi-rayed sun in bas relief.
A popular Prydaen myth says that once a year, Demrris and
Tenemlor trade roles for a day. A few clans believe that at
any given time, either deity can be in either role.
Tenemlor symbol: Shariza
Tenemlor is the Guardian of the Blessed, defending the dead
from necromancers and others who would disturb their rest.
Serenity, silence, peace, and order are her domain. Prydaen
Empaths revere her, for
her touch heals fever and madness, and Moon
Mages appeal to her for clear weather and freedom from
Tenemlor appears as a tall, proud, white-furred Prydaen with
one blackened and withered paw. It is said of a good ruler
that "Tenemlor stands behind him" -- maintaining
peace and order, and watching his back for traitors.
Tenemlor's symbol, the Shariza, is a disc of blue gold bearing
a pair of crescent moons.
