Patroness of Amazons and Martial Arts

Leya's skills as a Master of Martial Arts was often demonstrated by her winning matches in many a tournament held by the Elven Houses. She is also skilled with many weapons. Daughter of the God Kai, and the elf Learya, Leya was blessed with talents from both spheres.

The tomes record that Leya wielded the sword Soulingen in one of the many battles staged during the Undead Wars, accidentally killing her lover, Egan. Soulingen's blade holds the souls of those it kills, evil and good alike. It was after this mournful accident, staged by Luukos, that Leya built the tomb for her lover, which is now her shrine. Taking up a simple dagger, Leya wandered the lands, retiring among the elves that cared for her during childhood.

Leya's blessing often takes the form of a dagger-shaped mark.

Leya's preferred form is that of a woman who appears to be in her twenties with azure eyes and wavy mahogany hair. She wears a belted tunic over her athletic form and laced up sandals upon her feet. In manner, she is cool and confident. Her symbol is an ivory-hilted dagger on a field of deep blue.

Shrines, Statuary, and Holy Places

Wehnimer's Landing, Shrine of Leya

Located northwest of the Slope hunting area in the Old Mine Road region outside Wehnimer's Landing--adjacent to the Hummingbird Pond and Pond Burrow neighborhoods--is the Shrine of Leya.

The holy location is by the altar to the northwest of the pool.

Cleric Guilds

Displayed in the Prayer Rooms of each Cleric Guild is a statue of Leya. These prayer rooms are considered a holy shrine to multiple deities.

The statue depicts a young elven woman with the body and bearing of an acrobat.  She is clad only in a short, belted tunic and calf-laced sandals.  A dagger is casually inserted into her belt.

You reach out and touch the statue of Leya.

A soft wave of magic flows over you, making your skin tingle with Leya's energies.

Ta'Vaalor Cleric Guild

Located in an ivory gold-domed building just to the north of the entrance of the Ta'Vaalor Trace cleric guild is a shrine dedicated to Leya. This shrine is also available to non-clerics. The Ta'Vaalor Cleric Guild is located through a an ornate silver gate on Shimaerslin Wey.

[Cleric Guild, Shrine]
Fluted white marble columns enclose the area in a wide circle, marking the edges of the building itself. The stark white of the surroundings is broken only by the massive circle of vivid lapis lazuli upon the floor, its center inset with ivory in the shape of a simple dagger. A large statue of a slender elven woman stands to the north, the dagger she holds upraised in her hands bathed in the golden light filtering through the large oculus in the domed ceiling. You also see a small white altar.

>look statue
Carved from flawless marble, the statue depicts Leya, her sandals and tunic befitting her fluid combat stance.  She stands proudly, her beautiful features gazing up at the ceiling and the light streaming from above.  Her right hand holds a dagger in a sharply upraised arc, seemingly offering it to the heavens themselves.  Azure blazestars serve as her eyes, sparkling in a nearly lifelike fashion with any reflected light.

Wehnimer's Landing Cleric Guild

Located in the Antechamber of Others is a statue of Leya. This area is not considered a holy shrine.

The fiery young amazon whose image is conveyed in this figurine has wavy mahogany hair and piercing azure eyes.  Her athletic form is covered by a simple belted tunic, and she wears laced-up sandals on her feet.  Posed in a half-crouch with a dagger in each hand, she appears ready to strike at some unseen foe.  Her symbol is an ivory-hilted dagger on a field of deep blue.

Icemule Trace Cleric Guild

One of the Halls of Lessons in the Icemule Trace Cleric Guild is dedicated to Leya. The statue is identical to that in the other Cleric Guilds. It is considered a holy shrine.

[Cleric Guild, Hall of Lessons]
A white ivory altar stands to the south, set upon a circular tile of lapis lazuli that faintly emanates a pale blue glow from the reflected moonlight streaming through the thick icy walls. A subtle border of daggers alternating with owls is engraved upon the floor, following the circle in a gentle spiral. The statue of an athletic elven woman is situated behind the altar, her form slightly shadowed by the niche of ice arcing over her.

Major Sanctuary (220)
Your senses become flooded with the distinct sound of an owl's cry, and the faint, fleeting scent of trillium as the world around you blurs...
[Glade Sanctuary]
Tall marble columns inlaid with lapis daggers enclose a well-used sparring ring, its center bare of the grass that emerges green only near the edge. Against the ivory hue of the pillars, trillium blossoms blend to near invisibility, distinguished only by dark verdant foliage and a scent that haunts the air like a waking dream. Set back from the grounds, statues look in from each of the cardinal points, characterized by remarkable craftsmanship; in front of each is a small pool of crystalline water.
Azure sparks of light flood your vision, obscuring the sanctuary and causing it to dissolve around you...

[3p] Releasing all of the air from her body, CASTER lets the last syllables of her chant fall from her lips and you watch her grow perfectly still.
