Belana Zolaed is a drow priest of The Luxon at Jigow.

Description[]

Personality[]

Belana is a devoted woman who takes care of her deity's temple and her fellow worshipers' ceremonies.[3]

Biography[]

Belana joined or was born as a member of Den Zolaed in the Kryn Dynasty. At some point, her devotion to The Luxon proved to be deep and she became a priest, developing divine magical abilities.[3]

When the city of Jigow officially became part of the Dynasty, at some point before 835 PD, the cult to The Luxon also extended to the city, and a dodecahedron-shaped temple was built there. Belana was sent there to take care of it and conduct its worship ceremonies,[3] although a part of the local population still mistrusts these new beliefs, considering they are suffocating their own culture.[4] By 836 PD Belana was still the local priest, allowing other Luxon worshipers to attend the temple during the Festival of Merit.[3]

Trivia[]

  • Her name is composed by bel, a Proto-Indo-European root that can be interpreted as "shining", "pale white" or "grey"; and ana having an uncertain meaning (in very different languages can mean "child", "mother" or "grandmother"). It can also be a feminine variation of Belenus, a Gaulish Celtic god associated with light and healing. The name itself seems to be a reference to the deity Belana worships, and their light.
  • Being a member of one of the noble Dens of her nation, and a member of The Luxon's clergy, it's very possible that Belana is consecuted, although it is unknown if she is in her first life.
  • Belana has the same spell slots as a 5th-level cleric.
