Images of Calistria

Calistria (pronounced kah-LISS-tree-ah)[1] is the goddess of lust and revenge who takes on many faces and guises. She is held in especially high regard by elves, who often identify with her moods and changeable nature. A fondness for wasps has earned this vengeful deity the title the Savored Sting; such creatures live on after harming their enemies, a trait Calistria's followers hope to emulate when pursuing their goals.[2]

Dogma

Calistria is not only vengeful, but vindictive when she has been wronged by another; she will take her time returning such disfavor, maneuvering in order to attain the best position from which to enact her retribution. Her legendary trysts are well-documented, although it is difficult to conclusively determine whether these tales are tales are truth or nothing more than fantasy.[2]

History

During the Age of Creation, Calistria was responsible for distracting Rovagug while Torag and Gorum forged the shell of the Dead Vault, which would serve as the Rough Beast's prison after his defeat.[3][4]

Appearance

Calistria usually appears as a female elf of otherworldly beauty with elongated ears and limbs, and a suggestive smile playing across her face. She wears revealing clothes of flowing yellow silks that do little to hide her lithe and graceful form, and she is often depicted in the company of giant wasps.[2][5]

Relationships

Calistria is seen as a desirable partner by a number of other gods, and stories of her trysts can be found in numerous holy texts, including her own. One such tale claims Cayden Cailean's took the Test of the Starstone because of a failed attempt to win the attention of the goddess, who claimed that no mortal could survive her charms.[2][5] She also has an ongoing feud with Urgathoa, as the two goddesses often vie for the same followers because of their similar portfolios: Calistria represents lust, while Urgathoa champions physical excess of all kinds.[6]

Realm

Calistria holds a relatively small (though still large by Material Plane standards) palace at the centre of the Gardens of Deceit and Delight, a shifting maze within Elarian, the shared divine realm of the elven pantheon on Elysium. It is a place where lust and passion are freely shared and the darker aspects of each are fully embraced.[7][8]

Providence

Calistria holds wasps of all varieties in high regard, and those that displease the Savored Sting may find themselves plagued by swarms of the insects. Alternatively, one that pleases the goddess of lust may find themselves succeeding in pursuits of the flesh, the focus of such attentions unknowingly serving as an expression of her favor.[5]

Servants

Calistria's divine servitor race are the vendenopterixes, seductive, winged creatures who punish those who oppose the goddess.[9] The empusas serve as Calistria's handmaidens and agents who hide within mortal societies to achieve vengeance.[10] On Elysium, and sometimes beyond, Calistria is also served by a number of races that share her philosophy and portfolio, including azatas, fey, and giant wasps.[11]

Unique servants

Threv
This frog-like shapechanging sorcerer is obsessed with vengeance, and prefers gifts of poison or ranged magic to allow him to carry out vindictive murder.[12]
Velvet Wing
This slender elven looking woman, with ragged insectile wings is a seductress and faithful servant of the Savored Sting, though her kind are often mistaken for succubi, they do not have the reprehensible maliciousness of those demons.[12]
Menotherian
Appearing as a huge bear-sized black wasp, the Menotherian can also attain the form of a stunning elven beauty. She is the personification of Calistria's lust, vindictiveness and deceptive aspects as well as her Herald and most loyal servant. [13]

Church of Calistria

Worshipers and clergy

A follower of Calistria with a giant wasp companion.

The faithful of Calistria can be found across Golarion, but her tenets of lust and vengeance have taken especially firm root in Absalom, Galt, Kyonin, Nex, the River Kingdoms, the Shackles, Taldor, and Varisia,[14] and among Keleshites,[15] Taldans,[16] Tian,[17] Varisians,[18] elves,[19] and half-elves throughout the Inner Sea region.[20] The followers of the Lady in the Room fulfill varied roles wherever they are encountered, anything from spy to prostitute and beyond, but always in support of their goddesses' mercurial nature.[2] Such individuals deal in trickery and mischief, encounters of the flesh and knowledge that is both secret or dangerous, and the pursuit of these goals can often lead these faithful to wander the world in order to achieve them.[14]

Elven faithful

Elves hold Calistria in especially high regard, though she is also popular among humans and more exotic races, such as half-elves and tieflings. The faithful of the Savored Sting includes large numbers of prostitutes, thrill seekers, and spies. Her clerics usually clothe themselves in scant garb in shades of yellow, often accented by henna dyes used on the skin.[2]

Temples and shrines

In human lands, Calistria's temples host numerous sacred prostitutes and act as centers of gossip and information, assuring its continued growth in popularity.
