Iomedae (pronounced ahy-OH-meh-day) is the goddess of righteous valor, justice, and honor. Having served as Aroden's herald, she inherited many of the Last Azlanti's followers upon his disappearance, and continues to espouse the ideas of honor and righteousness in the defense of good and the battle against evil.
As a mortal, Iomedae led the Knights of Ozem in the Shining Crusade against the forces of the Whispering Tyrant. In the fall of 3832 AR, Iomedae, was the last mortal to pass the Test of the Starstone and ascend to godhood. Her actions took the notice of Aroden. She became his herald, replacing the slain Arazni. She served him in this capacity until Aroden's disappearance in 4606 AR.
Appearance and Emissaries Edit
Iomedae manifests as a valiant sword-mistress in full plate mail. She wields a long sword and a heraldic shield. Her shield casts a holy light, blinding evil beings, and her aura causes malevolent forces to tremble and falter.
Iomedae's servants include a number of former mortals who have been given divine power following death.
- This servant of Iomedae is manifested as a wheel of bright white metal, illuminated by holy fire.
- This former priestess of Iomedae sometimes appears as an eagle-headed winged humanoid.
Church of Iomedae Edit
Worshipers and Clergy Edit
Iomedae's priests are composed of clerics and paladins. Personal cleanliness as well as an honorable demeanor are both very important for her followers. An hour of prayer a day is practiced, in addition to a weekly public worship service. 
Temples and Shrines Edit
The temples of Iomedae function as both a church and living space for her holy knights. Also commonly used are former temples of Aroden. These buildings are often painted white and feature arched entrances, pillared courtyards, fountains, and statues.
