Adora: Goddess of Life
« on: January 27, 2006, 06:24:21 AM »
The Legend
The Goddess of Life is warm and loving. Seeming to represent Mother Nature, she is the life-bringer, the fruit-bearer, the farmer\'s wife and the mistress of the seasons. Always looked upon as kind and loving, she does have a harsh side if \'displeased\'; whenever droughts strike, or floods ravage the farmer\'s hard worked land.

The Symbol
A sheaf of wheat is the commonly recognised symbol for this warm-hearted goddess. Sometimes a cornucopia of fruit is used. Earthen colours represent her - vibrant reds, rich greens and browns, fiery oranges and sunny yellows. She is often depicted as a tall woman with a matronly bosom and long flowing red hair, with a soft smile upon her face. Most farming tapestries are said to be \'Adora friendly\'.

Omens
If a four leaf clover is found, it means someone in the family is about to find themselves with child.

Believers/Followers
Most farmers and commoners follow Adora for the simple reason that she is looked upon as a kind and merciful goddess, whereas Talon seems to rule with fear.
