Mother May’al is one of the high priests of Vasi, once numbering 92 in number. She is an ancient being, infused with the essence of Vasi, the water goddess, over one-thousand years ago and now exists only to serve her goddess and bring water and life to the world of Aventyr. She has sworn an oath to her goddess not to directly interfere with the affairs of mortals but she does occasionally encourage or support others in their efforts to improve the overall well-being of the world.
While she is an incredibly helpful and supportive individual, Mother May’al knows that life is an endless cycle and that while mortals hold great importance in a single life and lifetime existence, that water goes with the flow of things and does not act directly. Therefore, great and grandiose actions are not something the high priests of Vasi typically partake in and when, in history, this has occurred, a great reaction and pendulum shift swings things back in the other direction, therefore, she has discerned the best course of action is no action until the waters of change carry one in a particular direction out of requirement or necessity for survival.
If adventurers approach Mother May’al asking for some kind of assistance, she is more than willing to provide a resting place in Vasi’s Grotto, Vasi’s Well (and waterclock), or whatever temple she may be occupying at the time. However, those with ill intent towards Vasi, her temples, or clergy are not welcome and will politely be asked to leave. If those individuals refuse, Mother May’al will summon numerous water elementals and water-based creatures to remove the interlopers.
Healing is provided by Mother May’al to those faithful or reverent to Vasi at no cost. She does not believe in monetary gain and accepts only gifts for the temple that bring knowledge and internal growth such as ancient texts, prayer books, meditations, and the like.
Mother May’al has the ability to convert any cleric or paladin into a follower of Vasi. Paladins must take the Oath of Water. She also may convert any other class into a member of the Vasian clergy and grant 1 free level of cleric so long as the recipient is honest about their intentions and agrees to follow only the path of the cleric for the rest of their life, dedicating all their energy and efforts in promoting the will of Vasi and spreading her good name upon Aventyr.
Within the next 1d4+4 years, Mother May’al plans on starting her transition from Aventyr into the realm of Vasi in the planes, becoming a high proxy of the goddess and interfacing directly with the other high priests still operating within Aventyr. She has garnered an agglomeration of wisdom so great it cannot be further contained within a mortal brain, thus the request for the transference of her spirit into the great cosmos of the planes.
