11.1.22 MAYLEA, THE BLOOM OF SERENITY

Known amongst the Elders as a minor Fourth Circle Goddess devoted to
painting and sculpting the flowers of the First World, Maylea was often
called the Bloom of Serenity. Far more serious than many of Her fellow
artists, Maylea looked into the spirits of the flowers to find
inspiration for Her art, giving the blooms beauty to add meaning to
their short-term lives. A quiet and somewhat reclusive Goddess, little
else was known about Her during the days of the Elders. In the time of
the Elder Wars, She distinguished Herself by making objects of power to
help protect the other Elders from the threat of the Soulless.
Eventually finding Her way back to the First World in the modern year
208, She soon aligned Herself with the Serenwilde, as it most reminded
Her of the purity of Lusternia before the Soulless came.

Maylea values above all else introspection in those who seek Her, as
well as a willingness to examine oneself critically. She also approves
of curiosity and intellect, encouraging Her followers to express
themselves in the way that best suits them, whether that be through art,
the craft of combat, or scholarly pursuits. At the same time, She places
emphasis on personal responsibility. As once She looked into the spirits
of the flowers and painted their best qualities, She seeks to draw the
best qualities of Her followers to the fore.

Her symbol is a crystal orchid, refracting the light into many colours.
