|Affiliation||High Elves[3a] |
|Symbols||Eye sheding a tear[1a]|
Isha is commonly portrayed as a gloriously beautiful elf maiden full of life, with long golden tresses flowing around her.
Her symbol is an eye shedding a tear, which represents the tears Isha sheds for her mortal children, for although Elves are very long lived they are not immortal and must someday die. [1a]
She is worshipped across Ulthuan, but particuraly in Avelorn where farmers give offerings to her temples in the hope of a good harvest. She is also considered one of the chief deities of the Wood Elves due to her connection to nature and her marriage to Kurnous. [3a]
The High Elves consider the Everqueen to be the symbol of and most beloved of Isha, while the Wood Elves believe that honour belongs to their queen Ariel. This is a source of contention between the races.
Although Asuryan forbids the gods to intervene directly, she sometimes pleads with her mother to send guidance through dreams and nightmares to her elven children. If her father is truly distracted she will even intervene directly, destroying Daemons and others who threaten the elves. [3a]
