Zoraya is the daughter of Aesur and the Goddess of the Wind and of personal freedom. Sometimes called the Dreamer, she encourages her followers to live a life she knows she never can, one of complete personal freedom.
Most of Zoraya's teachings revolve around the freedom of the spirit. She believes that one is exactly as free as one believes oneself to be. Never lose sight of your dreams, especially in the face of oppression.
Clergy and Temples
There is little formalized clergy for Zoraya. Any sea-side village will usually have a shrine or small temple devoted to her, usually next to the shrine to her husband, Lathas. Most of her clerics are retired sailors, or the families of sailors who look after the shrine and remember the rituals to her. Her shrines always include a weather vane and wind chimes.
Zoraya is a minor deity in the Solscape Pantheon. She is the daughter of Aesur, infused with his divine essence and shaped from the clouds themselves. Although she disagrees with Aesur's iron-fisted rule, she is obediant to him, but seeks to avoid him wherever she can.
She spends most of her time with her husband, Lathas, Lord of the Sea.
