Lady of the Lake
|Attention, Adept of the LEXICANUM!|
Mainly worshipped by Bretonnian nobility, the Lady of the Lake is the national deity of Bretonnia and the patron of chivalry. It is revealed during the End Times that she is also Lileath the elder elven goddess, who chose Bretonnia as her mortal realm.
Her chosen champions are the powerful Grail Knights, these warriors, infused with power of an elven god are among the greatest in the Old World.
Bretonnian knights regularly pray to her asking for her protection before a battle.
Bretonnian peasants, who usually fight as men-at-arms, do not take part in such mass prayers; they are forbidden to do so upon pain of death. They are considered to have no honour, which allows them to use unchivalrous ranged weapons.
The Lady of the Lake is an extremely powerful goddess, one of the elder gods of the elven race. She mostly resides on Silverspire, a mountain near Athel Loren. She is known to the Wood Elves as Corrigyn, Daughter of Mists, and considered neither friend nor enemy.
She sacrificed herself during The End times, passing her title on to her daughter and giving her access to a mortal realm untouched by chaos. The spirits of this realm were those of the Grail Knights and would be used as part of her plan to rebuild humanity.
