Myhriss is the Flan goddess of Love, Romance, and Beauty. Her symbol is the lovebird.

Description

Myhriss is shown as a Flan woman just reaching adulthood, a garland of flowers in her hair. She has two aspects, a dark-haired, intimidating woman wielding a whip and a golden-haired, gentler woman wielding a shortbow.

Relationships

Myhriss appreciates Wee Jas for her attractive features, though Wee Jas jealously dislikes Myhriss for her claim over love and beauty. Myhriss is friendly and affectionate toward all benign gods, but avoids those who are hideous, crude, or hateful.

Realm

Myhriss dwells within or on the shores of the River Amiel in Thalasia, the fourth layer of Elysium.

Dogma

Love, Myhriss claims, can cure all the ills of the world. She urges that love and beauty be protected and celebrated wherever it is found.

Worshipers

Clergy

Clerics of Myhriss are starry-eyed and always looking for signs of love and beauty in the people and places around them. They bless young lovers, perform marriages ceremonies, create works of art, and travel to see beautiful people and fantastic sights. Some are diplomats, while some are crusaders against hate and ugliness. Myhriss' favored weapons are the shortbow and the whip.
