Phlegyas is a psychopomp usher, patron of atheists, parents (especially those who died in childbirth), and creations outlasting creators. She embodies resonance, and the works inspired by her are both beautiful, yet horrifying or painful. She offers respite to atheists who arrive in the Boneyard, and trains those with potential into psychopomps.12

History

In life, Phlegyas was a man and an arrogant genius and follower of Shelyn, who was excommunicated due to his blasphemy and pride. However, his legacy endured among admirers and detractors alike. Pharasma, seeing this as a fundamental part of mortal experience, transformed Phlegyas into a female psychopomp usher.1

Home

Phlegyas' realm is the Anonymous Loggia, a museum of works that endure long after their creators have been forgotten.1

Appearance

The least monstrous psychopomp usher, Phlegyas is a tall, broad-shouldered human woman wearing a simple mask and carrying an oar.1
