Manu, God of Thorns

Mah-noo (a.k.a. Queen of Thorns, The Harsh Teacher, That One)

Mind your complaining about the easy things, lad, lest you draw the attention of That One.
— a Vessunan parent to a child
  The Vessuna have a complicated relationship with this god. Manu gives trouble and takes it away. Her church preaches that adversity makes us stronger, making a case for her ultimate benevolence, but it must be said that she probably hears almost as many muttered curses as heartfelt prayers for aid.

Holy Books & Codes

The Trials: This tome details Manu's entire life, but even the faithful usually only read the final three chapters, each of which details one of the trials that she created for herself in order to achieve apotheosis.

Divine Symbols & Sigils

Her simplest symbol is a single, thorn-covered stem, but her churches indulge in ornate, thorny knot work sigils.

Tenets of Faith

Persevere. You gain nothing by quitting. Use your trials to grow. The bulb must freeze to bloom in spring.
