Sarenrae

The Dawnflower, The Everlight

Description:

Known to her faithful as the Dawnflower, the Healing Flame, and the Everlight, Sarenrae teaches temperance and patience in all things. Compassion and peace are her greatest virtues, and if enemies of the faith can be redeemed, they should be. Yet there are those who have no interest in redemption, who glory in slaughter and death. From the remorseless evil of the undead and fiends to the cruelties born in the hearts of mortals, Sarenrae’s doctrines preach swift justice delivered by the scimitar’s edge. To this end, she expects her faithful to be skilled at swordplay, both as a form of martial art promoting centering of mind and body, and so that when they do enter battle, their foes do not suffer any longer than necessary.

Sarenrae counts all non-evil gods as companions, even Norgorber, and communicates with them in the hopes of converting them from their dark ways. She has some distrust for Asmodeus due to arguing over the souls of the dead, and his betrayal and murder of her creator.

Sarenrae manifests as a bronze angelic beauty, with golden hair composed of flowing flame. From one hand emits a holy light which trickles down like liquid luminescence, whereas the other holds a scimitar emblazoned with radiant fire. Her holy light provides healing and sustenance, while the scimitar creates gusts of winds that remove disease and fear.

The church of Sarenrae is mostly composed of altruistic priests who are also ready to be stern should it be warranted. The church is known for blessing crops, healing the sick, and reforming criminals and evil doers. They are often consulted to solve feuds and disputes among neighbors and family. The Empire of Kelesh holds her as their patron deity and is responsible for spreading her faith throughout the Inner Sea.

Some followers of Sarenrae have formed a militant sect which is popular and influential in Osirion and Qadira.

Bio:

Sarenrae is one of the oldest gods in existence, having been created by the primordial deity of Chaos in the time before time. Sarenrae served in the war between the gods of chaos clashed with the gods of law, whoch were led by Asmodeus. Sarenrae confronted Asmodeus when he slew her creator and was nearly killed herself, but Asmodeus realized that he could never quench her resolution and that his battle was hopeless. He then abandoned the war and retreated to Hell.
