Hylea (Aedyran: Hylea), also known as bird queen, is the goddess of birds and the sky.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Hylea visits the people on the screams of women in childbirth - and when a woman dies giving life to her child, her soul is carried away and reborn as an avian attendant of Hylea's Court. Midwifes of Hylea wear the fetish charms of the Cloudsinger. Those feathery trinkets look gaudy and unbecoming, but it is a signal fire to women in need that they are a trained midwife, blessed by Hylea and living every note of life's song. The Queen of Birds wills their followers to shepherd new life into the world, and not, as the other gods so often desire, to end it.

Worship[edit | edit source]

The Bird Queen stands not on ceremony, she makes herself manifest in the music of birds and in beauty of the ubiquitous open sky. Hylea prefers the worship of two children singing over a thousand petitioners silently praying for victory.

  • Hylea is one of the gods you can curry the favor of during Council of Stars and requests that in return, you return the souls to the bodies they were intended for.
