Meavona – Love/Relationships
"The best relationships you will ever have in life, are those with people you choose to let into your life at the same time they let you into theirs"Pronunciation : Me-a-vona- Typical quote from a Meavona advocate
IntroductionLike all the Second Generation, Meavona was born mortal to a family that, whilst not abusive as such, was negligent. Left alone for most of her childhood, she wandered the streets of her home, the location and details of got removed when she ascended to divinity. What records she did allow to remain tell of a childhood filled with misery and border-line abuse. Meavona original species is believed to have been the so-called halfling.
Early LifeAt some point, Meavona escaped the border-line abusive family she was born into and fled. Some stories say she arrived in Franner , others say it was Libram , capital of Bilbios . All agree it was a proverbial big city of some type. It was there, she met what would become the love of her life and would form the basis of her belief going forward. The identity of the person, unlike other details, is surprisingly well known. A human gentleman, about 15 years older, helped her out and saved her from a life on the streets. Whilst there was originally some distrust from her and others, she grew to love and care for him and the new friends he introduced her to. When he died, her heart was broken and she never loved another the same way or with the same intensity, although she did have many new friends and a large new found-family of people who did care for her.
Ascension to divinityIt was not long after the death of her older partner that Meavona began digging into what some could call necromancy. There was nothing evil in her intentions, but she missed her beloved so much and wished to speak with him again. Whilst this path didn't bear any fruit, it did lead to a startling discovery - The existence of Godshard . Abandoning the "speak with dead" route, she threw herself heart and soul into finding a shard that would suit her needs. Eventually, one found her. Her passion and drive, not only to be able to communicate with her lost love and to prevent anyone from having the same early life she did resonated with the shard. It found her goals noble and her motives , mostly pure. It could understand the pain of loss of your one love and the joy in finding a family that accepts you for who and what you are. Some stories say the shard was guided to her by her lost love, a story that is not discouraged. Regardless of where it came from, it found her and the bargain was struck. Meavona would become the next generation of the deity of Love and relationships. Some tales say her first act was to strike a deal of some kind with a another deity, possible one in charge of death of various afterlives for the soul of her partner.
