Falayna is a powerful archon empyreal lord and patron of femininity and martial training, believing them to be complementary instead of exclusive.[1]

History

Millennia ago, Falayna's portfolio only encompassed femininity, and she was the lover of another empyreal lord, whose name has been lost, who was master of strength of arms. After he fell in battle against followers of Moloch, Falayna's recovery of her lover's sword led her from being an empyreal lord solely focused on femininity towards her role as paragon of martial training.[1]

Home

Falayna spends much of her time training her followers in the Half-Empty Palace on Illumis, the fifth tier of Heaven.[2]

Appearance

Falayna can take many forms, most often that of a beautiful, fair-skinned woman with glossy brown hair and blue eyes. She wears a silver breastplate under silk robes and numerous rings of all colours in her fingers, and is never seen without her sword Betrothal.[1]

Cults

Falayna is worshipped by warriors, jewellers and squires in training of both sexes, with women making a majority, as well as brides and girls on the cusp of growing up.[1]

On Golarion

Falayna has a following among the Mishyrians of the Kelesh Empire. Mishyrians came to worship Falayna after they split off from their Beshzen compatriots, who began worshiping Moloch after their cities were destroyed by a Spawn of Rovagug.[3]
