Wala-Kofa is the prime deity of the Uferbrech Goblins. She has two distinct aspects, that of creator and destroyer, which exist both together and as separate entities. She is most commonly depicted as female, but images and descriptions can be found in many forms, of any (and all) genders.
The dual form of Wala-KofaIn her dual form, she is most often depicted as a strong, muscular and pregnant woman. As a mask, she wears a a giant vulture-skull, and her hair billows behind her like mist and clouds. Otherwise, She is usually naked, except for jewelry of coral-glass, feathers and shells and her limbs are wrapped in growing vines of kelp. In her hands she bears the Mirrorshield of Wala and the Spear of Kofa. It is said that beneath her mask, Wala-Kofa has as many faces as there are living things, and any who gaze directly upon it with malice in their hearts will have their soul undone and scattered like sands in the wind.
A Godess dividedThe Broken Dream of Wala-Kofa, tells of the division of Wala and Kofa and the end of Ashtiri. The separated aspects of the Godess each have distinct forms.

She gives life to all living things and helps them grow.
KofaAlso known as The Wrathful Fire, Kofa is depicted as a skeletal being, encased in molten glass, and wreathed in flames. Her bones are made from pure crystal, and her body, translucent glass. She is associated with symbolism of fire, death and decay, and the most obvious symbol associated with her is the sun. Her depictions are either holding the sun in her hands, with it framing her skull-like face, or even replacing her head entirely. Kofa is the destroyer and protector. She brings justice and vengeance to wrongdoers. And brings all things to her when they die.

Divine Symbols & Sigils
Followers of Wala will wear a small glass vial of sea-water hanging from a necklace. It symbolises her tears.
