11.8.19 Melantha, Goddess of the Seasons
The Goddess Melantha was killed after sustaining serious injuries in battle with Sycaerunax, the Father of Dragons, in 611 AF. When the Wyrm of the World imprisoned Demeter's soul in the netherworld, She experienced a nightmare that would change Her forever. A ritual was performed to free Her from this prison, and She was reborn as Melantha, Goddess of the Seasons. She is the embodiment of dark and light within Nature, Her personality changing with the Seasons to reflect the experiences She had in the netherworld. Her first act upon returning from the netherworld was to battle the Wyrm and rid the world of its evil influence. Her realm was but one piece of the greater whole that is Nature, and She supported the balance of Nature, accepting each Divine realm within it as an integral part of the cycle of life. The Goddess of the Seasons taught of Change, that inevitable part of each man's journey through these realms. She accepted among her followers those who embraced Change and strove to adapt and better themselves along the paths they chose.
