Thevril, the White Lady - PV/Tari

Thevril, the White Lady is the goddess of death & dying, twilight and funerary rites. She is seen as the the keeper and shepherd of souls. When a mortal soul dies, she weighs their actions against their believes and sends them to the realm she deems the most fitting.
If a child dies and has no one - no family or deity - to send them to, she keeps them in her realm, settling them in the impression of a Wonderland, until their souls are ready to move on or return to the world.
