Omei, the Nightmare

11.2.10 Omei, the Nightmare

Mortals whisper of Omei's dominance over the Dreamworld, the slumbering kingdom beyond the veil of sleep that is Her playground. The architect of both tantalizing wonderlands and terrifying nightmares, She draws Her chosen - beloved and victim alike - into Her domain, dredging up their deepest desires and darkest fears, forcing Her followers to face what lurks in the corners of their own minds. In the cold, harsh light of the Dreamworld, hidden hopes become tangible, the path to achieving them laid bare, while lurking terrors take on physical forms for followers to battle and overcome, lest they succumb to their own nightmares.

Her path is one for the bravest, for those unafraid of the darkness within their own minds, and it was precisely this harsh, demanding aspect that placed Her in high regard by the Rajamalas of which She holds a special affinity for. Warriors and artists, politicians and poets, all are loved by Her, so long as they embrace the chaotic, creative lands She is Queen of - for that reason, the Undead are anathema, for their very nature is a slumberless, dreamless one, and She reviles them for shunning Her gift.

Her symbols are a moth and the moon.
