Nira the Sun

Nira is my daughter, my wife and my sister. I will love and hate her to the end of time, where I will devour her and darken the world.

-From the Book of Torax
Nira the Sun
Nira is the sun goddess as well as goddess of growth, agriculture, farmers and summer. Once worshipped across Gemnos, Nira, who is depicted as a black female wielding a staff and humble robes, is nowadays mostly worshipped in rural areas and amongst primitive people, which also cling to the ancient rituals of blood sacrifice to honor the goddess and amongst quite a few tribes of wood elves.
