Thrina Character in Kelbonnar | World Anvil


The tortured mother of grief and sadness, Thrina is a deity who is seldom worshipped or called upon and she has for most people who have heard of her become a figure in legend and allegory, and an obscure one at that.

Divine Domains

Thrina was a Divine who did originally preside over several domains which were believed to be associated with joy and happiness, but what exactly they were has been lost in the mists of time. Following the beginning of her Lamentation she became associated with the following domains:  
  • Mourning
  • Lamentation
  • Grief
  • Sadness

Common Worshipers

  Few would actively choose to worship Thrina as she has not been seen for millennia and she apparently has nothing to bestow upon mortals even if she had a desire to interact with them. Rather than worshipping her, many people will invoke the name of Thrina to express the depths of their own grief in purely descriptive terms.  

Temples & Priesthood

    In happier times of Thrina’s long life there were once joyous spaces tended by happy, dedicated servants dedicated to her, but after the imprisonment of Orivious and Thrina’s descent into maddening grief, these places of worship started to disappear. Without the guidance of their Goddess her priests either abandoned their holy vows or converted to the worship of another, whilst her temples fell into disrepair or were repurposed for other uses.  

Activities in the Divine War

    As Thrina disappeared shortly after the imprisonment of her husband Orivious, many thousands of years before the outbreak of the Divine War, she is not considered to be a participant in the conflict.

Divine Sigils and Symbols

  Thrina is most commonly represented by the symbol of a tear drop, or a single weeping eye. Very ancient symbols, predating the imprisonment of Orivious represent Thrina through the image of a dancing maiden.  

Divine Links and Progeny

  Thrina was created by and is the wife of Orivious.   Thrina is considered to be one of the Kameno.  

Mortal Creations

  No mortal creations have been proven to be direct, conscious creations of Thrina, but variations of the Lamentation of Thrina myth claim that her bitterly wept tears were warped by her divine magic into unique monstrous creatures, many of whom still reside within the inky waters of the Lake of Tears in the Middle Underdark.
