Raith is the grand fire elemental Goddess born of The Sleeping God’s deep passions and angers. Raith burns within the hearts of all mortals and gives them the power to act on their instincts and realize their true potential. She is fierce and bold, willing to take control and pursue her own purposes.
She lives at the core of the world, churning the stone of Gund into a molten sea. Her fires burn strong and her might is known through volcanoes and hotsprings, that deep down, it is Gund that shields the surface from the burning power of Raith.
Fire is life. Some gently flicker while others blaze with a glorious inferno, but all eventually burn out. It isn't about the mark made after the fire goes out, its about the significance the fire made while it burned.
Clergy and Temples
People pray to Raith to let the fires warm their bodies and let courage into their hearts.
Shrines of Raith are common in areas of war, where fire is used as a weapon and a tool. These small shrines are often marked with candles, soot and of course, the red triangle associated as her symbol.
Raith rarely heeds the prayers of individuals, which often leads mortals to perform prayer dances around great bonfires to receive the answer or blessing of their desires. Raith loves warfare, though she despises ignorant and senseless brutality, favoring the nessesity of groups of people protecting their hard earned beliefs and ways of life.
