The youngest of the Gods and Angels, Lumise, the Goddess of Healing, was created by the breath of a prayer for help. She guided the First People to healing herbs, and even imbued a sliver of her own power into the Nadmilise, allowing them to access the ability to heal others.
Lumise is best known for ending the plague that swept
through the Old World, revealing herself to the early Nadmilise. She is the
only God or Angel that showed her true face to the people, instead of shrouding
herself with godly light. As such, there are many statues of her likeness
across the Old World, and quite a few in Jacqueline.
She is deeply connected to the springtime, rebirth, and the herbs that grow after the frosts. She is therefore celebrated during Bulalae, the holiday in the springtime.
Her direct descendants are the healers, who wear gold leaf jewelry to honor her. They often feel a surge of power during Bulalae. Because of that, many people go to healers during the celebration, to seek treatment for ailments that would otherwise seem impossible to heal.
The Goddess of Healing is soft-spoken and generous, and has
a gentle beauty.
The Great Goddess of Creation formed from particles of air
and water vapor, swirling into existence like a sigh. She is said to be
resplendent, with long red hair, though none that have seen her face can really
Her first act was to create the rivers and lakes, the trees and mountains, in preparation for the life that was to come--though her greatest achievements are the four elemental lakes in the royal city of Sehir. When the realms were created as we know them today, she wanted to bring beauty to the new land, and put a little bit of herself into its creation.
She is best known for the lakes, and many people go to them to worship her. Her special holiday is Urozay, the harvest celebration, where people thank her for her beautiful creations.
Her direct descendants are the bakers and artists, those that create from nothing. They are said to have inherited her imagination and whimsy, and are known for having inspiration strike close to Urozay. She takes great pride in her creations, and those works that are created in her honor.
Those that have had the pleasure of meeting the Goddess of Creation have said that she is merciful and kind, but radiates an inner strength that is commendable.
