The angel empyreal Lord Arshea (pronounced AHR-shey)[1] is a champion of the repressed and weary, providing mortals deliverance from their bonds.[2] This liberation applies to many of Arshea's worshipers, who often choose to ignore conventional gender identities, eventually choosing one that fits them best.[3]

Appearance

Arshea is androgynous and has been depicted as both male and female, but in either case, always dressed in many-colored veils of gossamer. Arshea has a perfect face, a lithe body, and wings of gray and blue.[3]

Relationships

Arshea is a welcome guest at the empyreal lord Lymnieris' Palace of Delectation in Heaven and such visits are legendary in the intensity of the revels held.[4]

Church of Arshea

The Spirit of Abandon's temples are most likely found in artist's studios, burlesque parlors, and dance halls. Arshea's most devout followers endeavor to achieve sexual release daily (either solo or with partners), praise the beauty of the partners and self, and pray to Arshea while naked.[3]

Arshea's favored minions are aasimar enchanters, astral devas, and good-aligned nymphs.[3]

The cult of Arshea has a long association with Magnimar.[5]
