Selûne Character in Lost Waves | World Anvil


Goddess of the Mooon

Selûne is the goddess of the moon and the one anyone might seek out for guidance and protection - even those in service to other gods.   Hers is the moon's mysterious power, the heavenly force that governs the world's tides and a mother's reproductive cycles, cause lycanthropes to shift form, and draw one to the brink of madness, and back again. She has also been associated with guiding herders to good pastures. Her nature, appearance, and mood all change in turn with the phases of the moon. Her name is shared by the moon, Selûne; it is unknown if the moon was named for the goddess or the goddess for the moon. Regardless, most humans believe the moon to be the goddess herself watching over the world.   In both her avatars and in religious artwork, Selûne appears in many forms, like the phases of the moon. One is a dusky-skinned human woman with long limbs; perfect and exquisite beauty; wide, radiant, lime-green eyes; and long, ivory-hued hair that fall to her knees. Another is an ethereal young girl of slender frame, dark eyes, and dark hair, wearing diaphanous robes coloured white or resembling dappled moonlight, which trails her "moondust" or "moon motes". A third is a matronly middle-aged woman, plump yet fair and ageing gracefully, with grey-streaked dark hair. A simple depiction of the goddess is a woman's face on the disc of the moon.  


Her faithful, coming from many walks of life, viewed her in countless different ways, and she reflected this.

Personal history

Selune was, along with her sister Shar, the first beings. They made it possible for change to happen and for changes to last. In those early days they could work together to create worlds and gods. Selûne lost much of her power as she created Amaunator, the god of the sun.


Contacts & Relations

Selûne's nemesis in all things is her sister Shar. What one wants, the other wants undone. Selûne wants to guide and aid, where Shar wants to hide and hurt.
