Myriela, known to her followers as “Our Lady of Two Minds”, appears as a lovely young Twinborn female, with pale blue skin, crimson hair, purple eyes, and silver fingernails. Her holy symbol is representative of her, and the Twinborn as a people. The bottom spokes are legs, the middle spokes are arms, and the top spokes heads. She is the most beloved deity of the Twinborn people.
Myriela is a goddess concerned with crusading against evil and learning from all sources. Debates rage among her faithful as to which head is of which aspect – knowledge or war – or if she even differentiates between the two heads at all. Either way, she encourages the Twinborn to stand out in battle, and to study diligently when at home.
Clergy and Temples
Myriela's churches might seem to the new or uninitiated to be more like libraries. To worship her is to be a philosopher, debating on matters of religious and sociological import, and learning from scriptures and texts about the history of the world and the faith. At the same time, the arts of combat are not to be neglected, and so each follower selects at least one day a month to venture forth and practice the arts of war against the nearest hostile force, be it a goblin camp or a catacomb of undead.
