The Inheritor, Light of the Sword
Iomedae is the Lawful Good goddess of righteous valor, justice, and honor. Having served as Aroden’s herald, she inherited many of the Last Azlanti’s followers upon his disappearance, and continues to espouse the ideas of honor and righteousness in the defense of good and the battle against evil.
Iomedae’s priests are composed of clerics and paladins. Personal cleanliness as well as an honorable demeanor are both very important for her followers. The paladins of Iomedae are just and strong crusaders who live for the joy of righteous battle. Their mission is to right wrongs and eliminate evil at its root. They serve as examples to others, and their code demands they protect the weak and innocent by eliminating sources of oppression, rather than merely the symptoms. The temples of Iomedae function as both a church and living space for her holy knights. Also commonly used are former temples of Aroden. These buildings are often painted white and feature arched entrances, pillared courtyards, fountains, and statues.
