A lesser deity originally known to the Flan, Berei is goddess of Agriculture, Family, and Home. Her holy symbol is a sheaf of wheat stalks.
Berei is depicted as a brown-skinned, kindly-looking woman carrying a sickle.
Berei is thought by some to be a lesser aspect of the goddess of nature, Beory.
Berei can most often be found in the first layer of Elysium, in the realm of Principality.
Berei tries to strengthen the ties of family and community, and urges care in the planting of crops.
Berei's priests officiate over wedding ceremonies, attend births, and protect and teach their communities. Some clerics of Berei choose to wander, planting seeds, carrying news between communities, and looking for exotic crops. They often adopt their adventuring companions as if they were true family in every sense of the word.
