Greymayre

The Lady Greymayre was the first deity created by the mortals of Geos. Her essence is that of undying hope. Unlike other deities she thrives in places where suffering is prevalent such as in hostile environments, or among slave cultures. Greymayre is the main power that fought back the attacks of Oblivion. As such, Oblivion’s agents to trapped her in a rock made from one of her temples. Greymayre was freed from the chapel by Emperor Jovan, the last Unicorn Alaura, and a rag-tag group of heroes. Greymayre rapidly regained power and her active participation allowed Jovan to defeat Inritius.

Chruch of Greymayre
The faithful of Greymayre are most commonly found where desolation and despair is the worst. They make it their mission to seek out and help those in need of aid, and they believe that every life is precious and deserves to be protected. Even the most evil of hearts can be rehabilitated, in their eyes. They tend to have unshakable hope, and try to seek a silver lining in every situation. The most devout followers never marry nor have children, and instead choose to dedicate their lives to spreading the love and light of their goddess across the lands. They are not fond of war, but if the need arises they will get involved for the sake of bringing peace. They absolutely despise everything to do with Oblivion, and the followers of his faith tend to be the only exception to their otherwise pacifistic nature.
Churches of Greymayre tend to be referred to as “houses”, usually to create a more welcoming atmosphere. Anyone is welcome, and the priests often allow the homeless to sleep inside, particularly on cold or wet nights. Usually if someone is in need of healing, they do not charge for services, but they do heavily suggest a donation of any amount. The houses tend to be abundantly white with accents of gold, and they are kept immaculately clean. They do not believe in adorning their place of worship with an abundance of trinkets, so even their altars tend to be relatively bare. They believe their faith is best shown by doing Greymayre’s work, and bringing peace and hope to everyone around them.
