Yadira, deity of hunting and wild beasts. In addition to her normal titles, she is also sometimes called “noisy Yadira” because of her loud hunting calls. Yadira is the twin sister of Cadmus, daughter of Avasir She generally remains aloof from mortals, though she enjoys the company of nymphs and dryads.

Dogma

Yadira’s teachings emphasize the value and sacred worth of the wilderness and its inhabitants. She is a friend of nymphs and dryads, and somewhat less fond of centaurs and satyrs (her sympathies clearly lie with women of all species). She calls on her followers, including these sylvan creatures, are called to protect wilderness areas, preventing their destruction or wasteful use.

Though Yadira herself is a wild hunter, she exhorts her followers to hunt only what they need for food, never to hunt simply for sport.

Worshipers and Clergy

Yadira’s clerics are all women, and they must remain chaste and unmarried. They tend to retire from civilization, tending to the woodlands and their creatures. Like their deity, they spend much time with animals and sylvan fey. They typically dress in deerskin or moss green tunics.

Temples and Shrines

Yadira is revered as part of the whole pantheon, usually alongside Cadmus. The twins share temples in many cities, but Yadira has small, simple shrines devoted to her alone scattered through the wilderness. These shrines are usually located in sacred groves or alongside pure streams.
