11.7.7 LORIELAN, THE ENLIGHTENED
The former Queen of Proteus and once Jade Empress, Lorielan was recently released from Her crystalline prison to walk among the worlds once more. Her first return introduced a goddess of strict Knowledge and history, Her interest in the simple facts of existence and their endless accumulation. A breath of time and a second respite to the Kx'Khrah plane found the Lady no longer satisfied with the neutrality and moral ambiguity of that realm, and Her focus turned to the use and analysis of the information She once so ardently attained. Her crimes during the time of the Triumvirate were numerous, and to be forgiven of them, She grew to embrace a deep morality that was the counter to Her once reckless and dominating Self. Her time spent in introspection gave Her both Wisdom and Enlightenment, as well as a desire to ensure that Knowledge was bent towards the benefit of others. This change has suffused through Her current existence, creating a natural alliance with the concepts of Light, Righteousness, and Virtue. She patrons the realms of Knowledge, Wisdom, Truth, and Enlightenment, using them in accordance with those beliefs, yet does not claim them as solely Hers. Though once again involved in the realm of Achaea, Her attitude is often one of aloofness and apathy when dealing with those with dissimilar ideals. She cares not for material items, mortal vows, or petty bickering. Even shrines are often beneath Her attention. To gain the Lady's notice, one must display both intelligence and a deep devotion to Good. The symbol of the Lady Lorielan is a crystal scroll.
