Dogma

All life came from the sea, and continues to come from the sea with Aubrell’s grace. If you eat fish or anything that came from the water, give thanks to Aubrell for your bounty. A good life is a life of simplicity and beauty, of fishing, art, and song.

Mythology

Aubrell is the second daughter of Onsha, the mad goddess of the ocean depths. Unlike her turbulent mother, Aubrell likes a simple and peaceful life. She created fish and all animals of the sea. Though they are her creations, she also intends them to be nourishment for other creatures as part of the greater circle of life. In return, she asks mortals to respect the creatures of the sea, and not overfish.

Aubrell is usually a moderating force between her tempestuous older sister Nimbea and her ambitious younger sister Gallequa. They say Aubrell’s music can soothe any storm, slow any current, and give peace to any troubled mind.

Once, the dark god Yetzahara heard Aubrell playing, and became enchanted with her. He decided to steal her away. Yetzahara kidnapped her Aubrell and hid her away in a dark castle inside a volcano, as far away from the water as possible, so that no one would hear her music except for him. But some young mortal women who were passing near the volcano heard the sad song coming from within. They ran to the sea and sang the song to Onsha, who came to save her.

In gratitude, Aubrell turned the women into mermaids and granted them and their descendants eternal youth.

Worshipers

Aubrell is one of the most commonly invoked deities in daily prayer, for devout families across Orthon often give thanks to her when eating seafood of any kind – and seafood is a staple across the world. The exception is in the Holy Episcopate, where worshiping the Seasisters like goddesses is considered a major form of heresy.

Those who actually take Aubrell as their patron are mainly fishers, musicians, and people who seek a quiet, simple life. Of course, a great many people who seek a simple life find that such a thing is considerably harder to obtain than they might like!

A few groups of monks and wandering healers also take Aubrell as their patron, for the peacefulness and tranquility she represents.
