Elnade is the great and vast waters of the world, born of the blood of The Sleeping God. While being the grand water elemental Goddess, Elnade is the embodiment of the ocean, lakes and rivers. She can always be heard in the waves of the water.
Elnade nourishes life as much as she destroys it. In her constant feud with Aether, she drives the weather with storms, floods, clouds and drought, continually changing the world.
Water quenches thirst but water drowns. Water is mutable and uncaring; beautiful when calm and frightening when in a storm. When water is understood and respected, it can be directed and used, but never completely controlled, for that power is beyond mortals.
Clergy and Temples
Small shrines are often built to honor Elnade near lakes, river-crossings and wellsprings. Large shrines and small temples are often built in port towns where water drives the people's way of life. Some ships also keep shrines to Elnade to pray for her mercy as they cross her water or fish from her depths.
Many common folk might speak a prayer to Elnade, asking for rains to come or go, a cloud to offer shelter from the heat of the day, smooth sailing or a bountiful day fishing.
