Naruseiń

Naruseiń (Nem: 'Rainbow') is the partron god of writing and fine arts.  

Occupation

Naruseiń is the gardener of the God Naralte, who resides and works in the Garden of the Heavenly Lord that surrounds Naralte's palace in the heavens. In this garden he takes care of all the plants that exist or have even existed on Salan.

All day Naruseiń travels through the endless gardens, and sings the names of all the plants housed there. Hearing his voice all the plants grow and bloom. In the evenings a great feast is held in Naralte's palace, and Naruseiń entertains all the gods and spirits with his poetry and singing.  

Relationships

Naruseiń is the son of Naralte, Lord of the Heavens. Naruseiń is the father of all the gods agriculture and arts. Leitandár the Sower is his son, and he knows all the cultivated plants of the world, and not the least invented the art of winemaking. He is also the father of Astár the Healer, who knows all the medicine plants and drives away the Vermin of Ulalte.  

Worship

Artists prey for Naruseiń for inspiration, and he is praised in many songs. Honour is usually paid to Naruseiń before artistic events such as musical performances or theater festivals. He is thought to not care much for physical offerings, but is usually honoured in singing or poetry. Burning incense or scented candles are often also used as an offering.

In the West Island the spring plucking of the Holy Geese, kept for producing quills for the scribes, is done in the honour of Naruseiń. A festival is held at this time, and includes poetry competitions and musical performances.

Being the patron of writing, he appears in many stories, including the Myth of the spirit swan, and Ásinnár and the herb of rebirth (included in The giant and the rainbow snake).
