The Exiled Queen, The Burned Queen, Oathbinder, The Strangler
Woedica is a patron of justice, oaths, and promises, and conversely, an entity willing to disregard the rules if it was necessary to accomplish her goals.
Woedican clergy rely on local authorities to maintain the law, though they maintain a connection to the order known as The Steel Garrote
Woedica manifests in the world as the Strangler, a leathery-skinned old woman, always clad in tattered finery, who appears on an empty road or abandoned alleyway to murder those who break a solemn oath.
According to those few that claim to have seen her, she is supernaturally agile and quick, and at the same time possessing the strength to strangle a full grown giant. Woedica’s avatar is believed to have slain several usurpers in history, though it is possible that the real murderers merely blamed the goddess. For this reason, oath breaking is punished by strangulation in many cultures.

Woedica's is usually depicted with burned and withered skin, having been cast from her rightful seat by war and burned in Magran's fire... though she always keeps her dignity and plot her (rightful) revenge. Her devotees believe that she had once claimed rulership over all other gods. But if that was true, she was cast down in the far distant past. Among the other gods, she has no real allies, believing that all the gods owe her fealty.
