    The Raven Queen
    Once the goddess of fate and death. Minus
    The name of the goddess of death and fate is long forgotten, but she is called the Raven Queen. She is the spinner of fate and the patron of winter. She marks the end of each mortal life, and mourners call upon her during funeral rites, in the hope that she will guard the departed from the curse of undeath.

    It is now known that the ritual of binding broke the laws of life and death, weakening the Raven Queen and granting immortality to those unworthy. With Lyari's death, the tear had been mended.

    However, Zehir's consummation of Pelor made the tear much worse, nearly destroying the world. Fate had to intervene, forcing sacrifices amongst brave heroes. The sacrifices ultimately led to the truth, that Zehir was once Pelor's beloved Selune, and with her death, the Raven Queen was created.

    All was believed to be set right when Selune was returned to the night's sky and Zehir was destroyed... However, no one considered the Forsaken. Their belief and subsequent abandonment was too much for the Raven Queen's herald's to handle. Their soulless screams reached through time and space until the smallest spark of divinity heard them. Is it truly the Raven Queen? Who could know?


    She expects her followers to abide by these commandments:

    ✦ Hold no pity for those who suffer and die, for death is the natural end of life.
    ✦ Bring down the proud who try to cast off the chains of fate. As the instrument of the Raven Queen, you must punish hubris where you find it.
