The Thorn Within the Rose
Lage was one of the humans Zorin chose to replace his fallen comrades. Lage is the human goddess’ midwife, wise woman, and mistress of prophecy. She is said to be there at every birth and every death, fighting to keep souls free from The Lost‘s grip. He and she are bitter rivals. A common (if officially frowned upon) practice is to burn any followers of The Lost in Lage’s altars. Lage mourns at every death, rejoices at every birth, and appears at important events to give prophecies. Lage prefers fowl, swaddling clothes, mourner’s tears, and grave offerings to be offered to her in her altars.
She appears as a human woman with grey skin, wearing a simple grey robe and grey hooded cloak hiding her eyes, tears dripping down her cheeks. Her clerics are all trained in midwifery, funerary practices, and are all considered the most trustworthy source of divination in human lands. They often ask for or hunt birds to offer to her in their prayers as they travel. Her favored weapon is the dagger. Lage’s domains are Community, Death, Good, Healing, Knowledge, Repose, Water. Lage is Neutral Good.
