Who's Who; The Sect of Sharla
The Goddess: Sharla goddess of the Leomans and beauty
Born of a humble but well off clan Sharla had a normal childhood for a Leoman. The only notable thing about her youth was her remarkable beauty. She joined a clan on her maturity and had her first children within two years as was the norm. Unfortunately Orcs still preyed on the land in those days, and they attacked her clanhouse. While most of the clan escaped, Sharla's young infants where killed. She pursued the Orcs two days, and personally killed most of them. While she went on to bear other children, she has never forgotten the Orcs, and hates them with a passion.
The years of motherhood took her into middle age, and wanderlust took her past the clanhouse and into the greater world as an adventurer and later a witch. The tales of her adventures and climb into the heights of Eyrian society are well known and well told. She matured and in time he new mate, the Phoenix Tesral offered her the cup of immortality. She well knew that while her people looked to many gods, none looked after her people, she accepted, and began to make a place for herself as the mother and protector of the Leoman people.
Sharla is the patron goddess of her race, the idea of the female Leoman. She stands 5'9", on the tall side for a Leoman, her fur is a golden tawny color her hair silver, and her eyes rich amber pools. She is so beautiful that any mortal looking upon her is struck with awe and desire, so great is her beauty that even the animals will offer themselves as prey at her feet. She can use any power of magic at will, especially those of the Craft, in which she is an accepted master. Her intuition is so astute that she can come to a correct conclusion on only a couple of connected facts, sometimes on a mere suggestion. As patron of the Leoman race she is aware of any matter that concerns her people. While she maintains concern she does not intervene in the day to day lives of the people except through the priests.
Other important immortals: Demigods --
Shimmer -- The iridescent Dragon.
Shimmer entered Sharla's service as a demigod on a at the bequest of another god that wished a service of Sharla, the details of the service are not given. Shimmer heads the Dragons that serve Sharla, the rest are mortal, and flit about her in small form. He is proud as are all dragons, but of a kindly nature, and enjoys discussions of a deeply intellectual nature. He act as troubleshooter for Sharla. He seems to posses such power and items as he needs for a given task.
Tinn -- Male Leoman
Tinn is one of Sharla's many consorts, he is seen when a matter requires more than the mortal touch, but not the attention of the goddess.
Personal Servants --
Arias -- Male Leoman
Arias si a male Leoman that came into Sharla's service more by accident than design. He was killed while performing a service for her, the power boost from his willing sacrifice was more than a surprise his reward was a place at her side.
Important Clerics --
Wendia -- Female Leoman.
The current First elder. Wendia is a handsome Leoman, she has kept her figure through an active life, but her hair and limbs are graying.
Wendia is over 60 years of age but still active in the church, traveling from clanhouse to clanhouse to see to the concerns of her people and the goddess. She refuses to argue with anyone, she will simplly wait till they wind down, and repeat once again how this or that will be, and she will repeat this as often as necessary to get the point across.
Friends & Enemies
Favored Deities --
The Vala --
One of the Leoman's parent species are elves. Elves and their gods are held in respect. Sharla herself enjoys a personal relationship with Silalata Tommie.
The Avians --
Likewise this council of deities and Sharla are very close. She is associated with Tesral, Abba Eecreeana, and Ivan.
This serpent god seems to take delight in baiting Sharla. She would by choice leave this less that noble being alone. But when he sticks is nose it she more or less has to bloody it. Well he gets nothing he didn't ask for.
This relativity new group stands for everything Sharla is against. While they have yet to come to blows (and Sharla likes it that way), they cannot be allowed to worm any influence on the world.
Sharla is normally polite to these beings, as long as they maintain their distance and place, she will not hesitate to put them back where they belong.
