Lore

Gela is the wife of Teosek, the lord of all other Sylfaen deities, and mother to Cyfrai and Saori.

She is also sister to Lywra, who was once her equal and held dominion over the night and sky. But during Creation, Lywra grew envious of how the plants and animals of Sylfaen reveled in the warm light of day and hid themselves away to shiver in the cold and lonely nights. It was through Lywra’s domain that Gela was able to provide light and warmth to Sylfaen, and Lywra grew spiteful and jealous.

With a spell granted to her from Gorm, Lywra attempted to destroy the sun but merely brought the wrath of Teosek upon her. Teosek was moments away from killing Lywra, but Gela stopped him. She could not see her sister killed, for her heart was too full of compassion and forgiveness. Instead Lywra’s penance was to watch over the creatures of Sylfaen each night, as one of Bogadh’s constellations.

Appearance

Gela is a humanoid woman, draped in soft silks of the purest white. She is surrounded by an aura of light that is blinding to mortal creatures in its intensity such that no mortal can gaze upon her beauty.
