Dellen

Dellen [de-len]
Water, Glass, Human Protection, Human Creation

❧ Played by Aviy
Appearance: Female and human, roughly in her 40's and too thin. She has pale skin and hair, but the coloring is just a little inhuman. The main color to her is a pair of incredibly deep blue eyes. She wears loose, off-white, Grecian-style clothing that makes her look both paler and smaller than she is. Her hair is often in disarray, and her overall appearance often appears untended.
Despite looking small, underfed, and wafty, when Dellen isn't having an episode, she has a very commanding and warm presence. There is, at all times, a surprising 'weight' about her that marks her unmistakably as divine.

Characteristics: Nurturing, monogamous, lesbian, obsessive, demanding, needy, devoted, nonfatal self sacrifice, yandere.

Likes: Faithful loving monogamous relationships, being understanding of her, sacrifice for the betterment of others, expressions of love (even twisted ones).

Dislikes: Death (human only), poly/orgies/unfaithfulness, material selfishness, rejection, lack of understanding, talking badly about humans, nature.
Shrine: Pale sandstone slab at ground level, behind it is a stack of precarious sandstone making a narrow pillar. On top of the pillar is a large bowl (but with cracks instead of bubbles) filled with crystal clear water.

Ritual: Stand on the slab and place your (CLEAN) hands in the bowl to get her attention. Once the agreement is made, place your sacrifice on the slab and sprinkle some water from the bowl onto it.

[ Approaching the shrine supporting Cloud, making sure he's steady before placing his hands into the bowl. ]

May I ask what it is you'd request in exchange for healing his leg? We're unfortunately lacking in organs at the moment and I would not like to make him wait for me to hunt something...

[He moves the leg experimentally. Still sore, but not so much "ow, broken bone" pain. He could deal with this.]

...thanks.
