Iomedae

Iomedae (pronounced ahy-OH-meh-day) is the goddess of righteous valor, justice, and honor. Having served as Aroden’s herald, she inherited many of the Last Azlanti’s followers upon his death, and continues to espouse the ideas of honor and righteousness in the defense of good and the battle against evil.

History
As a mortal, Iomedae led the Knights of Ozem in the Shining Crusade against the forces of the Whispering Tyrant. In the fall of 3832 AR, Iomedae, was the last mortal to pass the Test of the Starstone and ascend to godhood. Her actions took the notice of Aroden. She became his herald, replacing the slain Arazni. She served him in this capacity until Aroden’s death in 4606 AR.

Relationships
Iomedae views Abadar, Cayden Cailean, Erastil, Sarenrae, Shelyn, and Torag as the equivalent of allies. She will not associate or parlay with evil gods or any fiends.

Appearance
Iomedae manifests as a valiant sword-mistress in full plate mail. She wields a long sword and a heraldic shield. Her shield casts a holy light, blinding evil beings, and her aura causes malevolent forces to tremble and falter.

Servants
Iomedae’s servants include a number of former mortals who have been given divine power following death.
