Tales of Brittanis
• The Primal Urge, Wavemistress, The Lady of Seasons
• Courage, Largesse, Principle, Humility
Formerly a Primordial, Sarai sacrificed her power to save the world she had come to love from the war that threatened to destroy it. Now bound to the land itself, Sarai has the power of a goddess and then some. She is the mistress of the primal urges of the world, of the four elements and the raging thunderstorm and the pounding surf. She is the Wavemistress, the Lady of Thunder, and the Wild Queen. She reigns over druids and those who wander the dark and forgotten places of the world. Many nonhumans and humanoids worship her predatory aspects as well, paying homage to her through worship of beast totems and animal spirits. She is goddess of the oceans, and counts sailors as some of her most fervent clergy.
Sarai is also the mother of Dagmar, the god of battle and conflict. As the story goes, after Ghorn the Godsmith was betrayed by the Archdemon Lavaynis, he wandered for unknown ages in the dark of the untamed wilderness. His beard grew long and shaggy and the little birds of the wood came to nest in it—so many birds, in fact, that the predators of the wild came hunting the birds and roused the ire of the grief-stricken Godsmith. As Ghorn laid waste to the wilderness around him, the predators called out to their goddess Sarai and she came to stop the interloper. Ghorn’s grief was so terrible and his passion for his lost love so great that Sarai’s wild heart felt the passion of love for the first time. She consoled the mighty Godsmith, and together they made a child— Dagmar, the wild and fierce god of soldiers and warriors.
Many stories and myths tell of the Archdemons trying in various ways to slay the child-god Dagmar, but they quickly found that Sarai’s furious nature also applies to her parenting Many is the mother whose children are in danger who utters a desperate prayer to Sarai in order to have the strength to protect her younglings— and Sarai has been known to answer in mighty and terrible ways to these desperate pleas.
There are many sects to her worship, but ultimately, Sarai blesses those who respect and honor the wild places in one way or another. Those who wantonly despoil the wild or corrupt the natural order are hunted down like prey. Aberrations are among her most hated foes, as they have no place in the world of trees, lakes and wilderness. She, like her sisters, is Unaligned. Her favorite weapon is the spear, or trident for those in coastal regions. Her values are Courage, Largesse, Principle, and Humility.
