Ashava the True Spark is an Empyreal lord, one of the unique azatas who have ascended after gaining a spark of divinity. She is believed to have manifested from marsh lights that danced in Elysium for ages. Legends hold that Ashava seeks out lonely ghosts who have become lost, leading them to safety at night. Graveyard shrines to Ashava reportedly give lost souls a place where they can rest.
Standing 7 feet tall, her gown made of starlight causes Ashava to be partially obscured by shadows, except when under the light of a bright moon. Her flushed, olive skin is complemented by the wreath of moss she wears on her head.
Church of Ashava
Ashava has a strong following in the Varisian city of Magnimar. Temples to the True Spark are found in barrows, graveyards, wilderness areas, and isolated communities. Her holy symbol is the silhouette of a dancing woman in front of a full moon. Her most common minions include half-celestial werewolves, lunar nagas and pegasi. Her most devout worshippers spend an hour each day dancing in an isolated area in the moonlight. If the moon is not shining, or they cannot be alone, they pray for the lonely dead and leave a lighted lantern for them somewhere dark.
